oh...my...gawd. so it finally came to pass.i worked in westerville for years and loved that history and tradition. sad, but as you can see in the article the people spoke and it finally fell to market pressures. that is truly a shame. ah well, now that they just dynamited their one big historical quirk westerville is even more just like everyplace else.otoh, it is remarkable they hung on to staying dry for as long as they did.
wouldn't that be the sh!te? since they have so little experience with legal alcohol you never know they might go bar building crazy and turn into a town of raucous, crazed drunks-- lol!ps--i dont think one strip made nola the "drinking capital of the us," but bourbon is a hell of a crazy street no doubt.
oh come on magyar you cannot tell me there is (ok was--for the time being) more per capita drinking in nola or la than nyc. not a chance. there is certainly a drinking culture up north here too you know. every bar or club oriented street in this city is raucous, even post 4am closing. no province can touch the massive total scale of that nonsense. nor anyplace in the world i would say.cincy-rise westerville was most certainly and without question the "dry capital of the world" because unlike other dry areas the history of the ladies anti-saloon league is directly what prompted prohibition.
Which state more recently lowered their drinking age from 21 to 18? New York or Louisiana
Which state has drive through Daiquari Bars? New York or Louisiana
Which city has the Drinking Museum? New York or New Orleans
I could probally find more published accounts about alcohol in NOLA than you could about NYC.
