Dance, Dance, Dance

There is a restaurant/bar/saloon located in Queen Creek that has run afoul of the law in Pinal County. It seems that certain evenings of the week, the owner has a live band playing and the patrons tend to want to dance to the music after eating.

The county swooped in and cited the owner for running an open-air dance hall. He was fined a retarded amount of money every day the dancing occurred.

Wednesday, a Pinal County Superior Court judge slapped the county down and told them to stop “creatively interpreting” the meaning of dance hall. The owner runs a restaurant and patrons dance. He does not run a dance hall.

The restaurant owner was represented by the Institute for Justice, a Virginia based Civil Liberties group.
