Guess who’s coming to dinner?

Just because most of the tourists who planned on taking a trip to Disney this Labor Day weekend prior to school starting up north have now cancelled their plans, it doesn’t mean we get to bask in the glow of light traffic and empty hotels. With more than a million people being ordered to evacuate from the coast, we’re going to have plenty of company coming to the City Beautiful.

What’s worse is they’ll all be coming and drinking our booze, because alcohol sales have been suspended in the evacuation area starting Friday night to prevent “hurricane parties”.

“We’ve had so many problems in past storms with people having hurricane parties,” said Joan Heller, spokeswoman for Brevard County’s Emergency Operations Center. “Frankly, we have much bigger fish to fry than dealing with a lot of drunks.”

So, take cover, guys. A lot of scared sober drunks are headed our way!

[ Seriously, stay safe. If one good thing came out of Charley, it reminded us how dangerous these things really are. ]

    No refreshments? That’s it. I’m canceling my visit tomorrow.
