The Mecca on Lower Queen Anne, proud home of "alcoholics serving alcoholics," isn't letting the nightlife regulatory wars of the late aughts die quietly. The latest sign on its marquee makes sure its drunken patrons remember that any pissing, littering, and caterwauling they may engage in outside the walls of the Mecca are simply not the establishment's concern. Nickels, you may recall, had sought to make nightclubs apply for a license and hold them accountable for any disruptive behavior occurring within 50 feet of the club premises. (The Nickels bill died amid all the negative publicity over Operation Sobering Thought.)
Nickels' proposal may have been misguided but...gotta love the community spirit here.
