The ABC has been hounding some of San Francisco’s all-ages venues for months, charging them with violating their liquor licenses because they make more money from beer sales than they do from food (duh). Yesterday, the Guardian reported that not only is the policy requiring these clubs to sell equal amounts of food and liquor not actually a law, it’s led to the temporary closure of the Buckshot and the suspension of Revolution Cafe’s liquor license. Another 10 or so venues face crackdowns, which are starting to drain them financially and morally as the legal battles drag on. In a video produced by 7x7 that ran yesterday, Slim’s co-owner Guy Carson invokes the spectre that such crackdowns, based on arbitrary rules could conceivably affect every single restaurant in town. Check out the video after the jump.
