Brian West was among those taking part in the Freedom Fest protest at Down on Main Street Saturday. The bar and 17 others had liquor permits suspended for 30 days  by the TABC. 

Down on Main Street made its statement and it’s time to pay the piper, or government depending on how you look at it. 

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission suspended the liquor permits of 18 bars across the state following Freedom Fest. Freedom Fest was billed as a protest against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott shutting down state bars amid the COVID-19 surge.
