The Village of Spring Lake’s Social District opened Friday, allowing customers to consume alcoholic beverages while strolling around a specified downtown area.

“The first Social District weekend was great,” said Paul Pugsley, owner of Fuel Bar + Refuge. “We had customers take drinks and hang out in the Adirondack chairs placed within the Social District boundary. ... Those that we spoke to were excited and said they look forward to seeing their downtown keep adding things to do. This includes the approaching revamp of Tanglefoot Park.”
