Last Call in California March 20, 2013

Huh? It would make a lot more sense, automobile-dependent as California still is, to keep the alcohol closing hour at 2 a.m. and insist that Starbucks and other coffee houses stay open till 4 a.m. If I went pub-crawling in a place I had to drive home from, I’d like [for the safety of the public] a non-alcohol place where I could chill out for an hour or two before I went to my car.

I agree with you.  Extending the operating hours for bars to 4am is a bad idea, except during our retreat in Carlsbad (where we can walk back to the hotel)!

So true Howard.  All we need is people getting more plastered then driving, or attempting to drive.  The later bar closing hours seem to work in cities such as Manhattan, NY which has great public transportation but, it would never work in a city like Los Angeles where there would be no such assistance for drunks at 4 a.m.
