Chanhassen planning commission voted to recommend the city approve the request to serve alcohol during the week of the Super Bowl. According to Paisley Park management they’ve received corporate inquiries for corporate events for 250-500 people. They want to put up the tent as an entry point for guests. Guests would have no access to the museum part of Paisley, only the sound stage/NPG music club. No smoking would be allowed. Sounds like a caterer will be required for any food/alcohol.

Glad to hear that. Hopefully council will approve it.

The only thing I don’t get is why would a corporation choose to have an event at PP and not be able to tour the museum? Might as well find a ballroom in a hotel somewhere closer to Minneapolis then. Unless there will be a option to tour? Though PP management was very clear these events would have no access to the museum.

absolut nuts I don't feel that Prince would be pleased about allowing the most dangerous drug of all, alcohol, into his home and sanctuary. He never allowed it while he was there, why disrespect him now? disbelief

I thought it was allowed for private events? At least that’s what some are saying.

Perhaps this was allowed, yet I highly doubt that these 'private events' invited the general publc. There is no way to screen a general public admission to drink alcohol in Princes' home that would eliminate all risk of destruction or distubance of Princes' legacy and or belongings. twocents

Oh brother. They've already said there would be no access to the museum and of course there is not any access to his living quarters, anyway. It's not a permanent license, only temporary. Sheesh what more can people find to complain about?

Um, this isn’t inviting the general public either. According to Paisley Park management it’s corporations that have inquired about using the space. So it would be corporate catered events. Anyone attending would arrive and leave by bus.

It was allowed. It was my experinece in the early 90's that at Glam Slam on the VIP level, Prince's security team would invite people to come out to Paisley Park for an afterparty, on Prince's behalf. These parties were always held in the atrium. There would be a DJ, catered food, and sometimes liquor. They weren't open to the general public and were invite only. When Prince opened Paisley Park to the public in 1995, the parties/concerts were moved to the soundstage area, and in 1996 to the Love4OneAnother/NPGMC room. There was no longer catered food or liquor when that happened.

Thanks rogifan. With all due respect, and tongue in cheek, I'm absolutely certain that anyone from a 'Corporation' would never be an obnoxious drunk. Or that any closet alcoholic that works for a 'Corporation' would act out, black out, or be unable to recall how they behaved in Prince's home. Each to their own, I kind of think it's a money grab and very disrepectful to Prince. He was known to call the cops if anyone, even in his parking lot, drank or smoked. (And who knows, they might have even worked for a 'Corporation')

Somehow, I don't think Prince would want alcohol on the premises of Paisley Park.

I don't think it matters that alcohol was allowed at one point. Prince didn't allow it after he became a JW and I think that the estate should respect that.

This is silly. One we don’t even know what the events might be or what type of alcohol would be provided. It could be just wine or champagne. Or it could be drink tickets where you’re not allowed to drink as much as you want. The presence of alcohol doesn’t mean people are going to be drunk.

Do we know for sure because I’ve heard confilicting stories on this. The only thing that seems for certain is no smoking anywhere on any of his properties (owned or rented).
