"Promoting the development and expansion of nightlife hubs should be a key economic development priority for cities. Or, rather, preventing neighborhood busybodies from stifling them ought to be. That means making decisions about liquor-licensing rules at a higher level, with consideration of the full citywide effects in terms of tax revenue and job creation. ... Cities need to treat it as a more serious matter than a simple question of neighborhood opinion."

— Matthew Yglesias, from a piece in Slate on NIMBY (not in my backyard) reactions to new bars and restaurants.
