If closing times are extended to 4AM, the student drop out rate will increase.

yeah .. i just went back and read up on it again myself .. it is two separate proposals .. Alison Gary's proposal is the Sunday alcohol sales proposal and Addison's is the extended hours permit for bars ..


Well this is a good thing. A few weeks ago, I wasn't even aware of the high-$ license and suggested something like that to decrease number of bars open past 2. That's perfect. Only casinos will serve till 4am. And normal bars will be open on Sundays along with liquor sales from 6am-2am sun-mon. That sounds good.
I'm looking forward to getting a few beers and a go-daquiri from FQD on Sundays before games at the Box this Spring if it passes.

yeah, normally, i follow the happenings of the council and parish affairs very closely .. haven't had a chance to lately thanks to the real estate slump here somewhat loosening its grip .. i'm kind of getting myself acquainted with these proposals on the fly here .. like i said earlier, the 4AM thing means nothing to me .. i'm an old fart that doesn't stay out past 10PM unless i am at an LSU game .. that's a young man's game there ... but the sunday issue does excite me because i would like the option to hit up some of my favorite dives to watch ballgames on sundays ...

my main concern is seeing proper attention paid to the southeastern portion of the parish that pays more than its fair share of this parish's nut .. we are finally getting roads widened over here .. now it is time for a little more economic development over here ..

The 4am thing will kill this IMO.

Rag, I heard your boy Bones stuffed the 4 am opening into a fairly unpopular piece of legislation. Still think it passes?

Same boat as you. I was afraid the 4am issue would kill the other.
But it's kind of exciting to know that if, once in a blue moon,,I have friends in town and we are closing down an establishment we can head over to the casino and have a few more and gamble. And there's a good chance they would be staying there anyhow. I'm behind this 100% and by no means a drunk. Just like the freedom to drink if we choose.

This is the major question.

Bars would have to generate another ~$100-150k/year(depending on fixed costs) in revenue to break even on staying open until 4 if this is an annual fee. That's pretty ridiculous.

I'm sure there are a few bars that will test the waters in hopes to be one of the few bars open after 2. I could see Happy's/Walk-Ons doing this with their deep pockets and steady business.

They are separate and new info leads us to believe that it's going to pass and allow casinos to stay open, not hole-in-wall places due to $40,000 license.

swams who is running this Eri Ponti or whatever dude's campaign? I don't give a shite about your conservative values and your stances against Obama, you're running for fricking city planner or some bull shite. I hate when local elections do crap like that.

Oh I see. I read something a couple of weeks ago that said someone who normally opposed bars opening on Sunday threw the 4am thing in there. Speculation in that article was it was basically to hurt its chances of passing.

to me, it sounds like bones has his hand in pinnacle's pocket on this one .. this sounds like a measure to appease the casinos more than anything, thanks to this very high license fee to be able to continue to sell booze an additional 6 hours a week .. bones is coming up on the end of his third term in three months, so he is term limited out after this anyway .. might as well grab a few bucks on the way out the door ..

Yeah, I was under the impression that Bones tacked the 4am thing to the original bill to cause it to fail. He would not want bars open Sunday. That is Georges big day.

4 am closing would help increase taxi usage bc everyone would not be trying to use all 3 br cabs at the same time. It is the difference between getting a cab in nola and a cab in austin.

yet another avenue of sales tax revenue generation for the parish .. something to add to the quality of life in a city that most will tell you is boring for a city its size .. an opportunity for the parish to take a step in the direction of progressiveness .. we'll see just how much our council understands that tonight ..
I hope it passes because it would be nice to move towards the 21st century but its baton rouge so i doubt it does.

If you ever have to deal with AT&T for something major, the PSC will be your new best friend.
