On daylight savings day, the District can party past closing time
The already sleep-deprived District is going to lose an hour of sleep to daylight savings time next month. But at least the D.C. Council wants us to have fun doing it.
D.C. Wire blogger Tim Craig reports that the council approved emergency legislation Tuesday giving bars and nightclubs the option of staying open until an unheard-of 4 a.m. on daylight savings day, March 13.
The legislation is an attempt to appease bars and restaurants who had previously complained about the lost of hour of business, though one council member pointed out no one was going to take an hour back from them during fall's daylight savings time.
But hey, the district's night hawks aren't complaining. We work hard, and revel hard too.
