You know, I understand the basic reasoning that says in order to be a "bona fide eating place" you need to get 50% of your sales from food. I don't have any objection to that.
What I object to is the lack of a license that has no food requirement but still lets you sell alcohol and admit under 21 if you can show that you can keep the booze out of the minors' hands. That this doesn't exist is just madness.
I don't live anywhere near the west coast, but I'm glad the good fight is being fought, just on the off chance that my own state might someday try to go down this road and re-consider because of your own war on fun. "Whoa! Remember what happened when they tried this in San Francisco? Yeah, let's not do that."
Well, it's a theory anyway. I can dream.
...is so bizarro land to me. Perhaps it wouldn't be if I'd actually spent any time in San Francisco, but it's so at odds with everything I associate with the place. "Come to San Francisco, home of live-action fun!"
Those of us who live here find it all pretty baffling, too.
