Booze Cruise Brings Drunks to River City?

Yay for Summer!  Not yay for drunks...

I contacted Alderman Solis about this, but I wanted to reach out to you as a resident of the Sloop (Wells/Polk) to express my displeasure with yet ANOTHER season of weekend drunks pouring themselves off of The Summer of George booze cruise boat that docks at River City each weekend.

This weekend, when the boat unloaded on Saturday, as per usual, the hordes of drunks filled the parking lot just south of River City, blocking the road. These people were yelling at my husband and I in our car as we attempted to drive into the parking lot. They scattered into the street, blocking traffic and being belligerent and disrespectful to the neighborhood.

Thing is, this has grown in nuisance levels over the past three years. We've had to call the cops a couple of times when fights have broken out amongst the drunk young people and this weekend I witnessed a girl relieving herself between parked cars on Wells. The 2nd time I've witnessed Summer of George drunks peeing in public and it is just the start of the summer "drunk season".

I just wanted to let you know what is going on - this is a nuisance to me and my neighbors and I am hoping the Alderman responds.
