3.       In making a determination as to whether a license for entertainment activity within the market shall be issued, the Association shall evaluate, among other things, the following: the nature of the activity, the dates, times and duration of the activity, the risk of injury to any person or properties, and the risk of unreasonable interference with the aforementioned commercial activities of the Market tenants and their owners, officers, directors, employees, customers, and invitees.  The Association will consider applications on a first-come, first-served basis.

6.       In the event there are any licenses or permits required by any governmental agency or authority with respect to the type of activity, Users shall be responsible for obtaining such licenses, authorizations or permits.

7.       Users shall refrain from: (a) verbally inviting patrons to their table and authorized area; (b) accosting or approaching patrons outside the authorized area; (c) physically obstructing or verbally interfering with patrons; and (d) restricting in any other way the free movement of patrons and shoppers in the Market.
