SAN FRANCISCO, CA (KTVI) – Everybody in the bar getting tipsy? Well, maybe not everybody. As the San Francisco 49ers prepare to take on the Baltimore Ravens, the city’s mayor is being proactive in preparing his city for what could be another chaotic aftermath of a big game.

Win or lose, many cities have been victims to vandalism and rioting after sporting events. San Francisco mayor, Ed Lee, is suggesting that business owners limit the amount of alcohol sales or at least sale responsibly the day of Superbowl according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Lee sees the consumption limit as a way to counter act the potential problem.

Last October, Mayor Lee saw firsthand that his city could become a little rowdy as images of a burning bus and rioters surfaced around the nation. The previous riot took place after the San Francisco Giants won the 2013 World Series.
