No Drinking or Partying in Panama During The "Day Of The Dead" Observances

Nightlife, Bars, and PartyingDance activities and the sale of alcoholic beverages will be suspended starting tomorrow, Friday, November 2, in the district of Panama because of the commemoration of the Day of the Dead. The measure was ordered by Decree 3214 of October 22, 2012 and applies to the bars, supermarkets, and discos in the 21 districts that form part of the capital district. According to a statement from the Mayor of Panama, the rule comes into force at 12:01 am on 2 November 2012, and will remain in force until 12:01 am, on Saturday, November 3. The order also prohibits the use of loud music boxes, jukeboxes, and dances entertained by orchestras, ensembles and other music media. The penalties for those who fail to comply with this decree range from one hundred to one thousand dollars. (Panama America)

Editor's Comment: Routine, normal, happens every year. So buy your booze ahead of time and get drunk quietly at home, because the bars will be closed.
