A few weeks ago we wrote about the proposed city-wide ban on "drinking and carrying liquor in public places, 24 hours a day, seven days a week." We don’t like to harp on this issue, but the nexus of booze, urban life and social justice is catnip to the hard-drinking city-living caring folk here at the Wellingtonista.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday the 30th of March — consultation will start then.

PS: when did we all adopt the Americanism "liquor?"
