The Post reports that you’re losing an hour of Inaugural drinking time. The D.C. Council voted to amend the two-week-old emergency legislation and cut the extended bar hours. You can now drink until 4 a.m. instead of 5 a.m. Not sure if this will placate the really lame senators who got all huffy over the extended hours. According to the Post:
“Under the legislation approved by the council this evening, bars, restaurants and nightclubs will still be allowed to remain open for food service around the clock from Jan. 17-21. However, they will have to pay a registration fee for each evening they intend to stay open past normal hours of 2 a.m. on weekdays and 3 a.m. on weekends. Nightclubs will be required to pay $250 for each night they remain open later and bars and restaurants will have to pay $100 per night.”
I am sure LL will have much more on this in the morning. So stay tuned. And sign up for Loose Lips Daily.
