DNA Runs Afoul of ABC

As first reported by SFist, on February 13th, the DNA Lounge's Jamie Zawinski revealed on the club's website that the venue is currently embroiled in a battle with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), who are “trying to permanently revoke our liquor license,” according to Zawinski.

ABC's charges? “”lewdness”, “discrimination”, and “running a disorderly house injurious to the public welfare and morals” – a shocking accusation in San Francisco, to say the least. The citation arose out of two former monthly events, the gay-themed “Cream” and the lesbian-themed “Escandido,” both of which were staked out by undercover ABC agents searching for illegal activities of moral turpitude.
