Comment of the Day

Today Katharine Shilcutt confirmed that the Health Dept. outlawed customers bringing dogs to Moon Tower Inn, much to our collective chagrin. One commenter, Zippy, made some good points:

I get not bringing dogs INTO restaurants, but the rule against having dogs on patios is ridiculous. And it's not a health issue either. Patios are by their nature frequented by all kinds of animals (birds, squirrels, the occasional rat) that are just as or more likely to cause health issues than a dog.

For a city that claims to abhor regulation, we sure have let the health department bureaucrats get out of hand.

You tell 'em, Zippy.
