• You may be able to walk around part of this metro city with alcohol soon


    MARIETTA, Ga. - People may soon be able to walk around Marietta Square in Cobb County with a glass of wine or a beer.

    That is, if city leaders pass a new proposal. 

    The Marietta City Council voted in favor of open containers this week. It would allow people to walk on sidewalks with drinks from Thursday through Saturday nights.

    However, people will not be allowed to take drinks into nearby Glover Park.

    "It will encourage people to come and, yes, we do need to keep it out of the park. We do have a lot of families,” said Linda Bradigan, who was eating dinner with her husband along the square. 

    The City Council will have to approve a second vote next month before it becomes law.
