Thank you for your detailed answer, it gives me a great starting point to research this further... i just have one follow up. I understand that state law supersedes local law but could you could check if the town of Glendale has some wording in their statutes that would allow the 24/7 consumption of liquor exception?
A. The size of the common consumption area shall not exceed the area approved by the local licensing authority; however, the promotional association may make such area smaller at any time provided the new area is clearly delineated using physical barriers to close the area to motor vehicle traffic and limit pedestrian access.
B. The promotional association shall provide an appropriate amount of security to ensure compliance with the liquor code and prevent a safety risk to the neighborhood. All security within the common consumption area or its attached licensed premises shall complete the server and seller training program established by the Director of the Liquor Enforcement Division of the Department of Revenue.
C. The promotional association shall obtain and maintain a properly endorsed general liability and liquor liability insurance policy that is reasonably acceptable to the local licensing authority of at least one million dollars ($1,000,000) per incident and names the city of Glendale as an additional insured.
D. Common consumption areas and their attached licensed premises may serve alcohol and the customers may consume alcohol until 4:00 a.m. It is unlawful for any attached licensed premises to serve or the promotional association to allow consumption of alcohol beverages in the common consumption area after 4:00 a.m.
