It's too bad none of these night clubs cannot set aside one or two nights a month to have an under 21 night, with non-alcoholic beverages, music, etc. Maybe they could set aside foosball or a pool table. I think they would get a great crowd, judging from those who complain there is nothing to do here, and leave for San Mateo. It might also be good training for those scantily clad teens to dress appropriately if they want to get in.

Hear Hear! Nicely stated. Lets hope some of the city officials take note.

Looks like the Times will be keeping the Insider thing going as a group work. They wrote up this FA dress code item also. Amy Yarbrough, Tara Ramroop, Nicole Neroulias, Jason Dearen and Steve Dulas are doing the legwork. Just keep reading this blog and you will save yourself a lot of time.

There used to be an unusual shoe store on Howard, where the noodle shop is now; perhaps 6 or 7 years ago. It was sort of a 70's retro place with berhigh platform shoes and they were very, very expensive. I remember thinking, how can kids afford these shoes? Then I heard the owner remark to someone that nobody could imagine how much money the local teens have to burn, that $100-$150 for a pair of shoes every couple of months was the norm for many of them. Remembering my youth, seldom having extra money to spend on clothes, that information came as quite a shock to me. Apparently, there were lots of wealthy, bored kids in town; that continues to be the case. There is lots of money to be made in that age group, people just haven't capitalized on it, yet. A teen night at a dance or night club could be a start. Just look at what Towles has become for adults, it's the happening place. The youth could use something similar.
