Fort Worth bar owner Chris Polone has organized what’s labeled as “Freedom Fest,” in which hundreds of bar owners say they’ll open their doors and set ’em up Saturday. About 800 bar owners have promised participation, Polone told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which could place their state liquor licenses in jeopardy.
Polone, however, is now organizing Freedom Fest in alliance with other bars and venues across the state that will open their doors illegally for concerts on Saturday, July 25.
When Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission officers gave him the option of shutting the event down or losing his liquor license on July 4, Polone — who was broadcasting on Facebook Live — got on stage, ranted, and tore up the paperwork. Then he went outside, lit up a cigarette, and said his lawyers were ready to sue the state of Texas.
