The DCist reports that the D.C. Council voted on emergency legislation to extend drinking hours for bars on March 13th. The measure was introduced ostensibly to recuperate revenue that will be lost as a result of the daylight savings shift on March 14th. Obviously, if your favorite saloon is participating, this extension will provide you with more quality time in front of some hooch. Start carb-loading now folks.

Incidentally, I wonder if the DC Council will insist that the subway remain open for those late-late night folks who will get sloshed and try to venture home? Well, if you are one who agrees with Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority general manager Richard Sarles, people shouldn't even be drunk on the trains in the first place.
