“You need to calm down, you’re being too loud”

Imagine this: You’re throwing a Super Bowl party and your neighbors complain about the noise coming from your house because you and your guests are cheering on Taylor Swift + the Kansas City Chiefs — hey KCtoday.

Did you know San Antonio has a running noise ordinance that outlines how loud we can be? It’s currently undergoing a review and revamp — but we’re here to break down the current ordinance so you can enjoy your next gathering without disturbing your neighbors.

Noise ordinance breakdown

The current city noise ordinance enforces sounds emitted from residences, businesses, and industrial + entertainment zones across San Antonio. The ordinance is required between 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Each zone has it’s own decibel limit — measured by a sound level meter — and is reduced by seven decibels at night.
 
The Buy
 
The Giving Heart pillow — a cream, knitted, heart-shaped pillow that’s weighted to replicate the feeling of a real hug. It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for loved ones who deserve some extra coziness and care.

From the editor
Can y’all tell I’m ready for the Super Bowl? I’ll be wearing my Patrick Mahomes jersey, and my dog is wearing a Kansas City Chiefs bandanna on his collar that I bought him. We’ll be camped out in front of my parent’s TV on Sunday ready to watch the game, commercials, and the half-time show.
