This morning the Washington City Paper reported that it’s official! Bars & Nightclubs will be able to serve alcohol late late night in the days leading up to the inauguration in order to accommodate all the additional tourists in the city. Now I’m not sure that’s a necessary “accommodation,” but I’m not complaining. The extra hours means staying out later and more money for local establishments.
The vote was 9-4 in favor of extending hours of alcohol service at local taverns and nightclubs until 5am between January 17-21. The legislation was introduced by Ward 1 Council member Jim Graham. Cheers!
