COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Columbia’s City Council has rejected a request by eight downtown bars to close adjacent streets for outdoor revelry during a University of Missouri football game in late October.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the council voted Monday against the request from Harpo’s Bar and Grill for a downtown hospitality zone. Seven other bars later joined that petition.

The council had earlier suggested that Harpo’s could host an outdoor party during the Oct. 26 Homecoming game against South Carolina but didn’t take a formal vote.

Elected leaders also rejected a private party planner’s request to close a street outside another downtown bar for an outdoor “foam party” in early October.
