Power & Light Ditrict St. Paddy's Day Mystery

If you went down to the Power & Blight District last night to get your St. Paddy's Day drink on, you may have been disappointed.

Fox 4 is reporting that many of the bars in the P&L closed as early as 10:30 pm, but it is unclear exactly why. Some bar owners said they closed early due to poor attendance, others blamed the long Big XII tournament weekend and their tired employees. However, that may not be the entire story.

According to some patrons, the crowd in and around the P&L was growing unruly as they became more intoxicated. They say the bars closed early for safety reasons.

In either case, it would appear the first big holiday test of the P&L was a failure. Hopefully the bars down there can learn from the experience and get on track for Cinco de Mayo.
