A Saturday night bar-nanza

Combine a Phillies game with the end of daylight saving time.

A Saturday night bar-nanza


Bars have been packed for the World Series Games 1 and 2.

Now, it's a Saturday night -- Halloween -- and they'll be slammed.

Add to that mess: Tonight is the end of daylight saving time.

That means an hour's extra drinking time at Pennsylvania bars and restaurants.

Jerry Waters, head of licensing at the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, told me that when the clocks go back at 2 a.m. -- the normal closing time for most -- the booze may continue to flow. 

At 2 a.m. standard time, that's it.

Be careful out there.
