Some good news for wine lovers here in California, the State Assembly is considering pushing back last call across the state. San Francisco Senator Mark Leno is the author of Senate Bill 635, which would allow bars to serve alcohol until 4 a.m. 

Leno is hoping serving alcohol for an additional two hours would boost tourism and jobs in the state. Opponents of the bill are worried that alcohol-related crimes would rise like drunk driving.

Mark Mandala is the co-owner at First Cabin, a bar in Arcadia.
