On Wednesday night, the Wisconsin Supreme Court overturned Gov. Tony Evers extension of the state’s safer-at-home order in a close 4-3 vote.
Immediately after the order was blocked bars across the state were packed with customers.
Nick’s Bar on 2nd Street posted a video on Twitteraround 45 minutes after the stay-at-home order was rescinded and it shows people sitting at every seat at the bar and multiple people standing against the wall with no social distancing between anyone.
The Iron Hog Saloon in the Town of Port Washington also opened its doors and was pretty busy

The Tavern League of Wisconsin told its members Wednesday that the ruling meant they could “open immediately.” It’s what the Iron Hog Saloon in Port Washington had already been doing.
“I opened to keep my business going and keep my employee’s families fed,” said Chad Arndt, owner of the Iron Hog Saloon. “There is no mask-wearing. We are cleaning up after every person, we are constantly cleaning up. Everything is done in plastic. We are not having any entertainment.”
Wisconsin governor Tony Evers says he’s disappointed in the supreme court’s ruling and is still recommending businesses to stay closed.
