The Politics of Dancing

The Daily News reports that City Hall is looking to make dancing legal in all New York City bars. My only question is, how will they stop all of the out of control sex that will occur if this ever happens?

City Hall is looking to eliminate – or at least loosen – the cumbersome cabaret license so more bars and businesses can allow patrons to let loose, the Daily News has learned.

“We either want to eliminate the license or establish a different license so that it would be less onerous for people to engage in dancing,” said a source close to the mayor.

The 82-year-old license “as it exists doesn’t offer a reasonable opportunity for New Yorkers to dance at clubs,” the City Hall source said. [NY Daily News]
