Entertaining while drinking

Do you know that in Washington state, it’s been illegal for an entertainer in a bar – say, a singer or band – to consume alcohol while working on the premises.

We’re totally confident, of course, that rule has been vigilently enforced in every drinking establishment in the state up to now.

But that’s changing. A rule in today’s Washington Register says: “This rule making is the result of a stakeholder request to allow entertainers to consume alcohol while performing on a liquor licensed premises. This activity is currently prohibited in WAC 314-11-015.”

Welcome to the real world.
