Closing Time, You Don't Have To Go Home...
Governor Mitch Daniels announced in a press conference today that local bars would not have to send patrons home an hour earlier than usual due to daylight savings time.
The Governor essentially said that the Alcohol and Tobacco Commission would not enforce alcohol license laws until 4:00 am in Indiana since the time change would essentially steal an hour of sales from Indianapolis area bars during a very profitable weekend.
We love the Governor’s commonsense approach to solving the problem of potential revenue losses. Squeezing the last dime out of every minute; this is exactly the type of business sense that Indiana needs.
