World Cup Runneth Over

D.C. Council passed an emergency measure to allow bars, restaurants and breweries in the District to stay open 24 hours a day during the World Cup, which will take place from Nov. 20 to Dec. 18 in Qatar.

Places that sell alcohol normally would close at 2 a.m. on weekdays and at 3 a.m. on weekends.

Now they will be able to sell alcohol until 4 a.m. and remain open 24 hours, but they would have to pause their alcohol service between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m.

“Call it sobriety half-time,” DCist states. “The extended hours will certainly be helpful because of the seven-hour time difference between Qatar and D.C., though alcohol won’t flow consistently in the city day and night.”
