There were some tense moments last night on the streets of Washington, DC, because many of the restaurants and bars could not keep up with the demand for liquor put on them by the attendees of the 2019 annual conference of the American Library Association.
As a result, throngs of roaming librarians took to the streets in the wee hours of the night in search of open bars and after-hours clubs.
DC Police Chief Peter Newhsam has reported that order has been restored as of this morning, and the International Bartenders Association is working closely with area restaurants and bars to restock for tonight so that there is no repeat of the hubbub tonight.
