Abe's Old Hat Antiques To Close For Saturday's Parade, Cites Expected Unruly Crowd


One downtown businessman is tired of pressing his luck with St. Patrick’s Day partiers.

 

The State Journal-Register reports the owner of Abe’s Old Hat Antiques on North Sixth Street will close his business down on Saturday… rather than deal with the unruly crowds that can come out for the noon-hour parade.

 

Despite some new restrictions this year… including a wristband requirement for anyone drinking liquor outside Saturday… store owner Michael Maylor says he doesn’t need the hassle.

 

He posted a sign on his store that talks about, quote, “putting up with the crap” from the parade… and says he will re-open Monday, quote, “after the city cleans up the beer, vomit and urine from our streets and sidewalks.”
