Oakland Cops Hit Clubs for Partying Without Permits



According to the Trib, the Oakland police made a run on 28 different clubs on August 30, checking to see if the clubs offered dancing, live music, or DJs without the requisite permit. Five clubs drew fines for daring to dance the Forbidden Dance: Easy Lounge, Lara's Bar, the Bird Kage, Eli's Mile High Club, and Mama Buzz. This has got Trib club maven Angela Woodall in a tizzy. "And people thought the movie 'Footloose' was far-fetched," she wrote. Readers are invited to weigh in on whether our Lambada gag kicked her Kevin Bacon reference squa' in the nuts.
