  •  "no booze served during the convention"? (6+ / 0-)

    I assume they mean "AT the convention venue" -- it's called privatization, forcing all those delegates to go outside and patronize all the local clubs for their booze instead of serving it up inside the arena. I bet the clubs are happy, and the convention employees aren't because they won't get the tips that come with an open bar.

    •  Or with a Republican convention, either. (0+ / 0-)

      Historic hatred for Republican conventioneers by tip-wage employees. Go figger.

    •  I foresee (0+ / 0-)

      A whole lot of very angry, but sober, convention goers.

      I also foresee a good number of pedestrian accidents, as those convention goers go back and forth to get their booze outside the convention hall.

      This is going to be very interesting.
