Alcohol permits have recently been requested for Bud Walton Arena, Baum Stadium, and a few other venues (not Razorback Stadium, though), despite the fact that SEC rules still prohibit alcohol sales in general seating areas at its venues.  Commissioner Sankey has said the alcohol-prohibition rule will probably be reviewed sometime soon. 

Three UA sites, including basketball, baseball facilities, listed for alcohol permits

Add this to Campus Gun Carry, what could go wrong?

Yes, I know guns are not allowed in the stadium

They'll approve it (and I'm "for") because there's a shit pile of money to be made.

(not Razorback Stadium, though)

Wouldn't they already have the permit for RS since they've been selling it to the club seats for 2 years now?

Yes, I think so.

I guess I meant a permit for selling alcohol in general seating, which appears to be what's been applied for with regard to the other venues.  Or at least that's how I read that article.  Of course, I'm not sure if a different kind of permit is required or not. 

Do they sell alcohol in the suites at BWA like at Razorback Stadium?

As am I. No doubt it will up the concession revenue.

 I doubt I will pay the $8.00 for a beer like at Jerry World. That's what tailgating is for.  :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:

I wonder if that will impact groups running the concession stands at games. Most are manned by kids along with adults to raise funds for their group. I know that you have to be a certain age at bars and restaurants to serve alcohol, will that same law prohibit the kids from being in the same concession stands that serve beer along with with Pepsi (spit)?

My bad, I didn't read the article, which addresses the existing permit for RS.  After doing so, I'd say they're getting ready in case the SEC allows it, which it absolutely should (I reckon it's better to have people drinking $11 tallboys for 3 quarters than sneaking in pints or getting blasted beforehand or leaving early).

I don't know about ASU, but you can buy beer at UALR's on-campus arena during basketball games.

I'm sure the UA is chafing at the bit to be able to do the same thing and make that money since it gets much larger attendance than UALR.

I frequent a suite at BWA and booze is available but it's not for sale.  Suite holders are allowed to stock their suite.

If they open up booze sells at games watch for them to crack down on tailgating.

I doubt it. People pay big money to tailgate in the garden and the parking garage just outside the stadium.

People will just park off campus or
 somewhere where they can drink.

Mr. Integrity is not about to let money leave his pocket. Even if he did, there would be such a backlash that he would not last.

Now, he may increase prices for tailgating to try to dissuade people from drinking, but that is about all.

radios said this morning that these permits were for the premium box/club seating only.  dwrrs already has alcohol sales in those areas, thus they did not need a permit.

Heard one theory that it might actually diminish the level of intoxication in the stadium. Pretty sure they were/are wrong.

I read that theory, first advanced by UWV I think.  Basically, the theory is that people won't feel the need to shotgun Fireball in the parking lot if they know they will not have the booze train cut off once they walk in the stadium.
