Minnesota Legislature Expands Bar-Closing Hours for Duration of Republican National Convention
May 9th, 2008
The Minnesota legislature has passed HF 3986 and SF 3642, identical bills that say, “During the 2008 Republican National Convention, holders of an on-sale liquor license may remain open and may serve alcohol until 4 a.m. each day.” The Republican National Convention is in Minneapolis and St. Paul this year. The bill only applies to that part of the state, and is repealed effective September 8. The normal bar-closing hour in Minnesota is 2 a.m.

That's dumb...If they are admitting that it is okay to have that expanded liberty on 'special occasions', why not all the time?

Wow, that's pretty ballsy. What the hell is the rationale for this? To me that just screams "politicians are a bunch of f-ing drunks, so let's cater to them."

Assinine.

I don't care what time you drink, but this type of move seems out of touch to me. But MN does have some strange liquor laws anyway (no offense).

I'm surprised they didn't legalize prostitution for the occasion.
