In the 90s, I had
tourist from around the world in my taxi riding around late at night asking me where to go for nightlife after 2 am. Even
when the Euro had regained strength, I should have seen more international tourist in my taxi but I didn't.
Many locals get off work around or after midnight. We should not be denied a little
fun after work. I have to decide between no shower after work for some bar time or a shower after work and no club time!
4 AM + last call:
This would benefit the entire nightlife experience. People can go to the show first,have a nice long dinner experience second,
then go for drinks afterwards to continue celebrating life.
I have heard many restaurants say they don't stay open late because there isn't much demand for fine dining after 10
PM. People have given up on late night fine dining because they know the restaurants are closed after 10 and their bar is
I hear a lot of visitors tell me that retail closes too early here. Once again, shoppers are rushing off to their early
dinner before their early nightlife.
People could relax, knowing they won't be rushed out of the bar (many people would still leave at 12,1,2 or 3 AM and people
would have more access to public transit.
Many people in San francisco like myself get off work around/after midnight. Wouldn't it be nice if we could celebrate life
instead of crawling home after getting off work!
As this world gets more crowded,one way to relieve congetion is to stagger peoples schedule,letting the early birds do their
thing and the night owls do their thing. Staggering work shifts will stagger play shifts and will ease the congestion of people
doing the same thing at the same time.

I recently heard that state Highway funding was tied to States enacting 2AM last call and age 21. Any city that provides abundant
public transit and hotel beds must be allowed to party past 1:30 AM like they do in New York, Vegas and Europe.
People and ideas to help bring the party back. We potentially have a more receptive
political climate. And a more urgent need to get the party started!
