Can you spray her with a hose?

Police would be your best bet if this continues.

Thanks for the advises and I finally started to take notes. I am also sending emails to board members so they have a record too. If it does not get solved, I will call the police next time. There is another neighbor who is also very unhappy about the noise but she prefers to stay quite !!! I am pretty sure there are more people but nobody wants to take responsibility or talk to her to keep it quite.

Don't forget to make a lot of noise early in the morning to help wake her out of her alcohol induced slumber!

And wake other sleeping neighbors. That should work well. NOT.

I live in a 4 level buildings condominium. As anywhere else we have good neighbors and bad neighbors. We have a very loud ground level neighbor who drinks alcohol on her balcony and hangs out with her friends (do not live in our condominium) until late midnight. She always talks very loud and I can very easily hear the conversation in my bedroom (4th floor). It seems like it does not bother anyone else except me! I already warned her twice and always get the same result. This is my balcony and I can do whatever I want. I also brought it up to association meetings and we have very weak board. My question is that is it legal to drink alcohol on your balcony? Her balcony is at the ground level and it is even not fully surrounded with bars so she can enter or leave her building from her balcony. It has a public access and everyone can easily get in her balcony. Based on my understanding, in Virginia you are not allowed to drink alcohol or show alcohol bottle in public accessible locations. Is is it true? cannot she drink alcohol on her balcony? Can I call police to report it? Or please provide me some alternative ways to deal with this neighbor? I can get dirty but really do not want to create more problems.
Yes, I think you are right about the law. I had neighbors like that when I lived in a townhouse, and they did the same thing. When I called the police to complain about the noise, they went over and told them not only to turn the music down, but also that they could not be drinking on the deck and had to take the party inside.

God I hate neighbors who can't grow up and leave their college partying days behind and behave like adults.

I did years ago working the evening or night shift as an RN. Or don't you consider hospital workers productive citizens?

Thanks for the advise. I definitely will do the same next time. I am glad that it is really hot these days so it is pretty quite outside.

They never grow up and behave like adults. It is very basic day to day respect to others but many people do not understand and think that respecting others limits my freedom!!!
