This is a brilliant idea.  I hope the maze is lined with beds so those who get too drunk and cannot stumble their way out just land on a bed and sleep it off.

Since when does the Indiana zoning board use the metric system?

I also hope they have a more direct emergency door in case of, say, a fire.

That isn't the strangest zoning law I've ever heard of, but it's the strangest one that I didn't read about in a Ripley's comic/book.

Isn't there some kind of fire code that this violates, like obstructing a clear path of escape or something?

India has fire codes, right?

I ain't got time to look for a good link from India. Korea's about to start WWIII And the biggest thing in the news over there is some k-pop star is getting married.

Go fetch the link, submit it with a Gandam style headline, hope it gets approved, and catch up. Like the Papa tomato said on the TV pilot Fox Force Five.

Jesus.  Isn't it just cheaper and easier to give the zoning commissioner a big bag of cash?

Easy, vu. A gigundo asteroid is coming and little peeves are petty distractions. I just wonder if the bar owner won't put some interesting challenges along the way.

There was a story some 10 years ago about a sex offender living too close to a school.  Turns out the guy would have had to trespass several backyards, climb a fence, cross an 8 lane freeway on foot, climb another fence, and walk through a Vons to get to the school within the prohibited range.

/ Government measured as the crow flies
