11:00 pm
to be managed and the purpose of that study among other thing was to make clear this is an important economic benefit and for jobs and for so many other economic purposes and something that should not bow -- be treated at all as a nuisance but something to key and address. it's not just an economic and strong driver in our city, it's really part of the cultural part of our city. and i will be honest that i have some concerns about where we are going in terms of our approach towards nightlife and what it means for the cultural essence of this city. we are seeing nightlife more and more under pressure for a variety of reasons
