The skanky stragglers at 2 a.m. are bad no matter where you are, nice club and bad club alike. I did say early on though that my overall view of bars is likely skewed due to having to be there until closing time.
WTF is this 2am business? Aren't bars open until 4am? Or is that just where I'm from?[/quote]
Varies by state.
In Ohio, last call is 2:00 a.m., though it used to be that a bar could pay for an extra license to stay open until 2:30 a.m. -- not sure if that's still a thing or not. I never played in a bar that was serving until 2:30 -- 2:00 in Ohio was always last call. Same for CA and most other states (NY is 4 a.m.)
