Bars None!

And so it's happend -- the Castro united! "Bars None" the headline should read as now, the owners of Lime, The Bar on Castro, Jet Bar and Badlands will be closing early (10pm) as part of part of the No Halloween in the Castro / Home For Halloween campaign. That's all of them!

I propose a toast (for November 1st): to all those public service and public-safety minded bar owners who are putting aside political differences and profits for the greater good of the community -- I salute them all -- those newest additions who came onboard tonight, and all our other bar-buds who are helping keep a united front in the Castro -- letting everyone know that on Wednesday, October 31 it's time to stay home for Halloween.
