I know some of you are fans, so I thought you might like to know that the DNA Lounge could use your help:
The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is trying to put DNA Lounge permanently out of business. They are accusing us of “running a disorderly house injurious to the public welfare and morals”, and are trying to permanently revoke our liquor license. If they succeed, we will close.
We’re fighting this, obviously. The appeals process will be lengthy, and even if everything goes wrong, we’re not going anywhere any time soon. We are open, and will remain open for the foreseeable future.
You can read more details about this fight on my February 13th blog entry about it.
We’ve been fighting the State of California over our alcohol license for more than two years now, and this process has been extremely expensive so far. As you can imagine, it’s hard enough running a small business during a recession without also having to fight your own state government who are trying to destroy you.
