As Enclave readers know, I strongly advocated the regulation of after hours clubs located in residential neighborhoods, given their propensity to be crime magnets and weekend nuisances. Yet, I completely missed this website of supporters of CM Anna Page's effort to eliminate BYOB in such establishments. I have no doubt that their educational and social networking efforts motivated Metro Council to pass CM Page's bill on December 16 (it was signed into law by the Mayor on December 19). Kudos to the webmasters and community organizers. It was a win for hyper-local netroots.
