Bars Can Close Later for RNC: Meh

You know, sometimes I don’t like compromise.

I was excited at the prospect of all bars in the Twin Cities metro area (or even just the cities themselves) having 4 a.m. bar closing times. But, thanks to our wonderfully effective, not-stupid, puritanical phobia of alcohol (despite our great love for it, both from our economy and our stomachs), there are only thirty-two bars that even have the option of staying open, assuming they pay $2500. Which many of them won’t.

I wanted to be happy and excited about this, but not one of these bars is a bar I’ve been to more than once, which is to say none of my favorite bars are on the list. Dag, yo.

    *sigh* I agree with you completely. Pretty short list there; I confess to hoping it wouldn’t be limited like this.

    Perhaps the part of this article that I got most excited about was when you said "Dag, yo."

    This whole thing is just dumb.

    I won’t be happy until I can buy liquor on Sunday, in the morning, and after 10pm on a weekend.
