It’s been over a year since I mentioned California’s absurd post-prohibition blue laws being newly enforced, ticketing bars for the heinous crime of infusing alcohol with fruit and herbs, and finally this week, it looks like things are about to change.
Local boy, SF State Senator Mark Leno’s bill has passed the legislature and just needs to be signed by the governor. If you want to show your support, an online petition has been started by the Bon Vivants.
Now what we need is legislation allowing bars to stay open until 4:00am. Give California’s thousands of bars the option to pay an annual fee for extended hours, and just let our broke-ass state rake in the dough from this and the taxes on additional sales.
