(Sacramento, CA)  --  A San Francisco-based state senator is trying again to make it legal to party almost all-night-long.  Scott Weiner is introducing a modified version of his bill to allow bars to stay open until 4 a.m. instead of the current 2 a.m. last call.  

Unlike his previous versions that were defeated or referred for study, it wouldn't apply statewide but only to six cities whose mayors support it, including San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Sacramento, West Hollywood and Long Beach.  At a news conference Tuesday at the San Francisco Eagle bar, Weiner argued it's about the culture of the community and boosting the economy and says "people wonder why they are in a major metro area and can't find alcohol after 2 a.m."
