The event kicks off at 10am. (What? You can’t properly day drink unless you start early.) But if you're traveling from out of town, you won't be able to pregame or keep the party going while you ride the LIRR or Metro-North. The MTA released a 24-hour alcohol ban for the event to ensure everyone's safety. It begins at noon on December 8 and lasts through noon on December 9. Don't be naughty!
