Noted Pizza-Roll fans, we're not one to patronize pizza establishments in order to stifle late-night sodium cravings brought on by binge drinking. (Really, with Pizza Rolls you transition from freezer to toaster oven to mouth in record time, seamlessly.) But the this idea of a late-night pizza ban is insane. There's no better word for it.

In North Beach fights breakout and mild vandalism occurs after bars close at 2 a.m. This chaos, typical for any city, makes some of our sensitive city dwellers cranky before bedtime. Or whatever. So, the City Planning Commissioners somehow got it into their heads that closing pizza parlors on the the Broadway strip, pizzerias that normally stay open until 3 a.m. or 4 a.m., before 2 a.m. will solve a slew of problems. According to the Examiner:

Closing the parlors at 2 a.m. or earlier could curb violence and public drunkenness and reduce litter from pizza boxes and plates, Central Station police Capt. James Dudley told commissioners at the meeting. Dudley said earlier club closing times could also help solve problems in the area.

But the closure could spell out certain death for Cable Car Pizza and Broadway Express Pizza -- establishments that rely on the late-night revenue. Are lingering drunks such an issue for SFPD that it's worth forcing restaurants out of business? Seeing as how it's their job, can't the fuzz handle a few tipsy, Drakkar-Noir-soaked partygoers?
