Via Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the Minnesota legislature has given the Vikings permission to sell alcohol in the Commons park, a 4.2-acre gathering space outside U.S. Bank Stadium.

Vikings V.P. Lester Bagley explained that there’s no specific plan to sell alcohol in Commons park, yet.

“The biggest issue is the lack of fan gathering spaces and disappearing tailgating opportunities — a time-honored tradition for the Vikings fans in the days of yore,’ Bagley said.

We all know alcohol is an essential item that must be sold during a pandemic.  If fans aren’t allowed in the stadium, they should be allowed to get hammered outside of it.
