Mayor McBeardy is Our Hero!
Finally, someone in this city is talking some sense! Today the Mayor of Seattle (surprisingly, not the Mayor of Ballard) proposed that bars should be allowed to stay open all night. Hooray! Finally someone running this city is talking sense. Hopefully it will weaken the stranglehold the crazy-restrictive-controlling-antiquated-out-of-touch Washington State liquor board has on our nightlife.
Anyone who travels knows that if you allow bars to close when they want and stagger closing times, it lessens the 2 a.m. crazy time. People drink, get drunk and go home on their own schedules. No one wants a hoard of drunked up fratholes roaming the streets with reckless abandon all at once. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to get a taxi at 2 a.m.? Brilliant, Mayor, brilliant! We are so happy you are our Mayor instead of that blowhole Nickels. Amen.
Now, we only have to hope that the WSLB approves it. Where is our sexy silver haired pol when we need him? Reuven?? A little help please....
