Bummerdude! Nothin’ but sausage fests back then

The women’s suffrage movement helped make usher in the alcohol prohibition. Maybe it was retaliation for this.
Thats still the law in The Castro.
….at least if Scott Wiener has any say in it.
If I read that correctly, this is actually saying that women are no longer prohibited from drinking in bars. “Saloon-keepers are not prohibited from selling liquors in bottles to women who call for such at saloons.”
Maybe it’s the invention of the off-licence!?!
or maybe they’re not allowed to drink liquor from glasses, only bottles?
No, it’s just clarifying that women can still get drinks “to go,” just not “for here.”
good decifering! you must be a lawyer or something
No, it is saying that women may buy bottles of liquor to deliver to their men at home (you may consider that in whatever sinister light you choose)(or drink at home without any men involved WINK WINK), but may NOT themselves consume any liquor they purchase ON OR NEAR the premises where where it is purchased.
Bars must have really sucked in 1930.
Sorry 1910. Poor eyesight.
They probably sucked even more in 1930, when prohibition was on.
At least then, when it was underground, cops wouldn’t go around kicking out all of the women.
What a coincidence – today is the 79th anniversary of the end of prohibition.

One of the final attempts to shut down the Barbary Coast… like most efforts before it was usually not strictly enforced
