Common Misconceptions

Everybody makes mistakes, but here are a few that you can avoid making, which will help us keep the Tipp City DORA open and in the good graces of our local and state law enforcement agents.

You Can

  • Support local businesses by purchasing a drink at a participating Tipp City DORA location and explore the district during the designated hours.
  • Take a purchased drink into non-liquor serving establishments that have the green “DORA Beverage Welcome” sticker on the front of their business.
  • Drink responsibly. Rules pertaining to public intoxication, indecency, noise, and driving while intoxicated still apply.
  • When you see a sign that says the DORA district boundaries have ended, you can finish your drink and throw the cup away.
  • Have a great time!

You Cannot

  • Roll your own cooler of drinks into the district. All beverages must be purchased from a liquor serving establishment.
  • Walk around with a purchased drink that is not in a designated Tipp City DORA cup. No cans, no glass bottles, no red solo cups, no coffee to-go mugs you filled at home, are permitted.
  • Take a beverage from one liquor serving establishment into another. Liquor permits cannot cross, when you do this you risk the establishment losing their liquor license.Don’t be that guy, drink your beverage within the district.
  • Throw your trash on the ground. Fun fact, there are several trash cans in the Tipp City DORA, find one.
  • Loiter on private property. Like, why? Pretend this is Bourbon Street. This is Tipp City, and we are attempting to be civilized. Don’t ruin it for everyone.
