Alcohol own script. Spirit is 53. If you're in no time, Mesa 47 Togo in two years time 601. I think it's bordering on ludicrous and ridiculous. Well, that is the former president of the San Diego chapter of the California Restaurant Association, not mincing words about more restrictions coming from businesses now that we're in the purple tear in San Diego, Jeff Rossman telling Koco news that many restaurant owners can't survive. Another shut down another shutdown, and some will defy the orders come Saturday. They have nothing to lose. They're going to lose everything. Regardless, So if they lose their liquor license, or if they lose their insurance, or if they lose whatever they lose, they get a fine. It's gonna happen. Regardless.

Their argument centered around First Amendment rights and adult entertainment is a protected form of expression. It's unclear if that argument could applied other businesses. But he also says.
