I had a great time dancing to what the dj was spinning when I was there in May of this year without having one drop of alcohol.

Goodie for you. Anyone who has a glass of wine or a beer is immediately a falling-down drunk?
Really?
The enjoyment of a quality beverage is part of an excellent dining experience, which Prince loved.
So judge him, too.

Well there isn’t really a dining experience at PP. Anyway we’ll have to wait and see what events are planned. Will they be private corporate events or open to the general public? I’m not surprised PP would want traffic during the week of the Super Bowl. Mystic Lake (in nearby city Prior Lake) is holding all kinds of concerts that week.

Did I say that everyone was going to be a falling down drunk? No, sure didn't. But there's always one or two who have to go beyond their limit and create disaster. And yes, it was 'good' for me.

Lol, as usual, a major to do over everything to do with PP, in this case something that will only last a few days. Every single time something new or different is proposed, people spin out over it. People on Facebook are spinning too. The bottom line is that Prince wanted Paisley Park to continue on as a museum. That is part of what he wanted for his legacy. It is up to those responsible for running it to figure out how to pay the bills to keep it up and running, you know...just like Prince wanted it. He's gone now, he doesn't care about earthly things anymore, but do fans care about helping to ensure the legacy?

I swear there is never going to be a time that the fans will lay off and be supportive of different ideas to keep that legacy going shake

There are people on Twitter saying boycott Paisley Park because of this and claiming Paisley Park is making money “hand over fist”. When I first heard about this I had my reservations but some are just way over the top about it. I mean we don’t even know what type of events are planned and if they’ll be private or open to anyone.

THANK YOU!

Those childish, whiny "petitions" flooding social media are embarrassing to SERIOUS fam.

This morning, some off-kilter person is posting one claiming that they're going to allow "smoking and drinking" inside PP when the request says NOTHING about smoking (which would not be allowed in PP due to state laws). Then, others are sharing it without question.

These "fans" (fanatics) claim to know everything about Prince yet it's obvious they do not. They do not understand the political (Republican) fundraisers held there...and I can assure you NO political fundraiser is alcohol-free. Do they think Mixed-Blood Theater was going to serve water at their big bash (which was cancelled after P's death)? What about the private events? What about Prince's own enjoyment of wine, champagne and other beverages?

PP has never been licensed under Minnesota law as a "bar" or alcoholic purveyor. These temporary licenses are common and hopefully this will be approved.

Interfering with the BUSINESS that is Paisley Park Museum (created by a money-making BUSINESSMAN named Prince) will be detrimental to the legacy. The alternative is to let it be sold off to pay that tax bill.

My guess is whatever temporary permits were needed in the past were not made public. A lot of fans probably don’t know they existed. And they know that concerts/PPAD events were alcohol free. Plus not all private events - at least ones that Prince was there for - served alcohol. I remember reading an article after he hosted the NABJ (in 2015 I think) and included in the story was that the only beverage served was water. I understand some might be concerned (I’m not sure exactly how I feel about it), but putting out blatantly false information like allowing smoking (which is illegal in most public places in Minnesota) or referring to these events as “boozy parties” or speculating that drunk people will be wandering around PP spilling their drinks all over the carpet and museum artifacts is ridiculous. I’ll bet any Super Bowl events will be confined to certain areas and people won’t be able to wander around the entire building with drinks in their hands. I’m sure this isn’t the first time Graceland has done special events. They know what they’re doing.

Good grief now the mayor had to post something on Facebook probably because of these silly petitions going around online.

https://www.facebook.com/LaufenDH/posts/10215082015349613
FANS of Paisley Park -

Decisions by the members of the City Council of Chanhassen should be based on the facts and their interpretation. The details of the Permit Application and related ordinances to serve alcohol at Paisley Park haven't been fully gathered as yet. City Staff is looking into all the details of this permit and is scheduled to present to Planning Commission for review on December 5th, and then to the City Council for action on December 11th.

While I understand and appreciate the passion of the "Prince Fams" around the world, I believe patience should be exercised at this time. All the facts and details have not yet been revealed.

You are welcome to express your views as you choose. Please do so in a manner that is respectful of others. The character of Prince included respect and love for one another.

Thank you.

Denny

Since the upcoming Super Bowl will be in Minneapolis, I think that a Super Bowl party is a great opportunity to showcase Paisley Park and build it's reputation as a tourist attraction. In order for Paisley Park to be viable for years to come, it has to host events in order to generate continuing interest. I think a yearly Super Bowl party would be a great idea. If there is not one already, the Estate could install a large screen on the sound stage and it would be a great experience for watching the Super Bowl. I see nothing wrong with serving alcohol a couple of times per year --- for a New Year's celebration and the Super Bowl.

Prince had his own Super Bowl party and there was liquor and you could smoke at Paisley Park in those days. I don't see the big deal this is causing.

Did Prince ever allow or sell alcohol at Paisley Park? Just seems disrespectful. They really think no one will show up for Super Bowl events unless they can drink? I hope the city says no but they won’t because they’ll want the business. 😔

I don't have a problem with Paisley Park having a liquor license. Seems like everywhere has them anymore.

I was at an indoor waterpark just this past weekend, and it seemed like everyone was drinking beer. At a lodge designed primarily for children.

He could only be referring to public events. If Prince wanted to invite people to a invite only party and provide alcohol, then the city would have nothing to say about it.

So I wonder then if Paisley Park had to submit a permit request because of the change in status when it became a museum? Maybe now even private, invitation only events require a permit from the city?

I would think so, since it is being ran as a business open to the public.
