The DC council wants you to party. In emergency legislation the DC council approved extending the hours to serve alcohol during a few days around the inauguration.
This just screams not well thought out. First is the member who proposed the legislation did not even vote for it because it was amended to include clubs. Second, and probably more important from a safety point of view is METRO hours have not been extended yet.
And I think I have an early front runner for most akward Chirstmas gift.
