As reported by MPR News:
"Starting April 19, Minneapolis bars and clubs that feature live music will have to offer free earplugs to patrons under an ordinance approved Friday by the Minneapolis City Council.
The ordinance is believed to be the first of its kind in the country. It will apply to about 185 bars, clubs and performance venues as a condition of their liquor licenses.
The earplugs will be provided to the businesses at no cost thanks to a coalition of private funders, including the clothing company Locally Grown, Globally Known."
Here's a decision made by a City Council that I actually approve of!
