Extended Drinking Hours at Inauguration: It’s Official

The vote is 9-4 in favor of extending hours of alcohol service at local taverns and nightclubs until 5 a.m. in the days leading up to the inauguration.

The real drama was in a 8-6 8-5 vote as to whether nightclubs would be offered the extended hours or not. Here's who fought for your right to party: Harry Thomas Jr., Yvette Alexander, Marion Barry, Kwame R. Brown, David A. Catania, Mary M. Cheh, Jack Evans, and Vincent C. Gray.

LL ran down the drama.

    Maybe they could finally count the medical marijuana votes, & those of us with prescriptions for the herbal medicine would be allowed to spark up with impunity.

    I thought it wasn't official until Fenty signed it, which, according to WTOP last night, isn't a foregone conclusion?
