As always, close all bars in KCMO at Midnight EXCEPT for those in the 18th & Vine District, let the ones there stay open till 3:00 am (or let them stay open 24/7).

This will localize the trouble, keep the JOCO ex-Fratboys and SoroSluts safer, and make it simpler for the Coroner and Police to pick up the Trash every morning.
