Coming soon is the much-heralded Chili Cookoff and all its festivities. The Rome Police just held a meeting to deal with that very subject. It seems that this year, they are going to "crack down" on those who are bringing their own alcohol rather than buying it from the approved vendor. The vendor beer prices are exorbitant. There is no history of problems at this event and everybody has a good time. So it seems that as long as you are only buying your beer from the vendor and paying their prices, you will not be cracked down upon. Get caught sneaking your own beer and you may have problems. I can tell you that the cops do not like this or I wouldn't have heard about it. Again, this is not based on a history of problems but is based on a downturn in profits for the approved vendor. Be careful with your beer or you may find yourself on the wrong side of the local cops. They may not like it but they have to keep their jobs.

I hope this is not true but have the feeling that there may be something to it.
