In addition to "The Bikini Ban", the same article also mentions a new ban. This one is the most ridiculous and I'm hoping the reporter fouled up the details. Get this one:
The new measure follows another recent ban on the city's streets; it is now forbidden to drink from bottles or cans on the streets of the Catalan capital.
It doesn't say it bans bottles/cans of alcohol, just bottles and cans on the street! Forget about walking down Las Ramblas holding a can of Coca-Cola, I guess. rolleyes

Talking about going from loose, fun and free to uptight! Man! Way to take-away Barcelona's FUN image!

Saludos, MadridMan

I read about this a couple of days ago and at first didn't know what to think. It feels like the city is going backwards not forward. I haven't been to Barcelona in about 4 years so maybe locals feel something is getting out of hand.

On the other hand; vacationing yahoo's getting liquored-up and exhibiting boorish behavior in your neighborhood can become a total nuisance. I guess I can understand where this is coming from.

Damn I'm gettin' old
