The Social District allows customers the flexibility to purchase alcoholic beverages downtown (currently from Tripelroot & Frank's East) and consume them while walking or sitting within the boundaries of the district. (See map for district boundaries.)
This is a perfect opportunity to grab a drink while you wait for availability to dine at a restaurant. It also creates the opportunity for different people in your party to select drinks and food from different restaurants and dine together at City of Zeeland tables within the Social District. Think of it like a food court!
You may eat or consume alcoholic beverages served in designated Social District cups at any City of Zeeland furniture, including: downtown benches, picnic tables, at café tables found within the boundaries of the Social District. Group seating is provided at the Elm Street Park (across from City Hall), in the Main Street bump outs adjacent to the mid-block crosswalk, the patio behind Drip Coffee, and the on-street Patio in front of Tripelroot (on Main Street).
Businesses that provide their own café seating in front of their business along Main or Elm Street, may permit customers to consume Social District beverages while dining at their tables. (Please ask at individual businesses.)
Beer, wine, and liquor are allowable drinks when served in a designated Social District cup. Drinks must be purchased from a licensed business within the Social District. Currently: Tripelroot & Frank's East.
