Wherein the War on Fun is engaged.

I wanted to let you all know about a new campaign that has just launched, "Stop the War on Fun".

If you're reading this, you're aware of the assault that we at DNA Lounge have been under from the ABC for the last year or so, but you might not realize the extent to which San Francisco's other all-ages venues have also been under attack. This new site (and corresponding Facebook group) has been put together for those of us who care about live music and night-time entertainment to communicate, coordinate, and organize on a larger scale.

There is also a "Stop the War on Fun" Facebook group, which I encourage you to join! The "Stop the War on Fun" web site has a form you can use to send a letter to the Mayor and Board of Supervisors encouraging them to take action to bring this out-of-control state agency into check. Let them know what you think!

And as long as you're feeling join-y, here are some other DNA-related Facebook groups:

    So how does the fact that California has gone USSR affect your problem? Will the ABC stop nagging? Hopefully they're all out of a job now...

    I think a more entertaining look at this would be to create an abc.ca.gov parody website where the mission is changed to brag all about how the abc ensures places of business serve enough mexican food at decent hours (lunch - 8pm) and keeps people in check by making sure they don't dance too closely together. Remove all mentions of alcohol from the website... since you know... it seems they don't care about that anymore.
