On a Lighter Note

Since you've just plowed through some dense info on our city budget, here's some lighter fare. Hood River Municipal Code Title 9.20.040 prohibits frequenting a bar for the purpose of soliciting another person to purchase drinks. As I understand it, up until about WW2 taverns would employ women who would pretend to be patrons and ask men to buy them drinks. The bartender would give the woman a watered down drink, but she would get a cut for helping run up the tab.
