WASHINGTON (AP) - The D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration is testing a new city policy allowing extended alcohol sales before holidays.
The Washington Post reports that the administration has given 42 bars and restaurants permission to stay open around-the-clock on Monday, Columbus Day, and serve alcohol until 4 a.m.
Mayor Vincent Gray and the D.C. Council agreed to allow the change before official federal and city holidays. The move is designed to raise $3 million more in revenue from alcohol sales.
