Some refreshing news from The Black Cat, via dcist:

Black Cat owner Dante Ferrando told DCist that due to safety concerns, he started trying to ban flip-flops from the venue last year, though never went so far as actually enforcing the ban -- he just posted a "no flip-flops" rule on the wall, instructed his door staff to remind people of the rule, and generally still let people in who were wearing them. But after a couple of concert goers had to be carried downstairs with foot injuries thanks to broken glass or crushed toes, he anticipates cracking down on flip-flops in the near future.
Sure, his objections to the offensive footwear aren't particularly in line with my more aesthetic sensibilities, but it's still a start. Now for the gay bars (yeah, right)...
