Do you enjoy the ease of being within walking distance to your favorite weekend spots?All of these could be endangered if some anti-nightlife proponants have their way!!DCNC Nightlife Facts:1. Moratoria on all new ABC licenses exist in Georgetown, East Dupont and West Dupont. New licenses to sell liquor in Adams Morgan and Glover Park are prohibited.2. Under current laws, renewing existing moratoria is extremely easy, thus effectively banning all new licenses for an indefinite amount of time. Eleven area Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANC) have lobbied the Alcoholic Beverage Regulatory Association (ABRA) to make the laws even easier.3. ANCs protest nearly every single individual license renewal that comes before ABRA stating no other complaint than the establishment â€œdisrupts the peace, order, and quietâ€. No factual evidence or further explanation is needed to lodge a protest.4. Due to the lengthy and costly protest process, nightlife businesses are forced into so-called â€œvoluntary agreementsâ€ which amount to nothing short of extortion. Facing loss of revenue and huge legal costs, nightlife businesses must concede to any number of ridiculous demands from the protesters. 5. Council member Jack Evans and several ANCs have supported measures that would effectively force all businesses offering any nightlife entertainment into registering as nightclubs. Nightclub licenses, historically meant for strip clubs and nude bars, cost nearly three times that of restaurant licenses and are almost impossible to obtain.For more information on these and other issues affecting nightlife in the District, please log on to www.DCNC.org .Help save Nightlife!
