Critics Fear Drunken Rich People

Brooklyn Nets

Barclays Center critics have a new bete noire, the drunken plutocrat roaming the streets of their neighborhoods. They recently learned that while those in the cheap seats cant be served booze after the start of the fourth quarter, those in expensive suites can get drinks up to an hour after events, including Nets games, or as late as 2 a.m.

"I’m really concerned about drinking and driving because the people most likely to drive to games will likely be drinking later and longer," said Councilwoman Letitia James.

The Post reports the arena holds 4,400 premium seats and more than 100 luxury suites, which hold about another 1,000 people — all of whom will have access to the exclusive drinking areas and who will get first crack at limited parking spaces.
