Gold Dust Lounge Offering Free Drinks to Abandoned Alcatraz Tourists

Christopher Victorio
This is about as close as you'll get to Alcatraz -- for awhile

No one's going to prison in the bay today.

With day one of the federal government shutdown in effect, many tourists are having to rework their plans -- no trips to Muir Woods, forget Pt. Reyes National Seashore, and that ticket to Alcatraz? It's no good.

But there's a place Alcatraz ticket holders can add their itinerary -- the Gold Dust Lounge. Tourists can drown their sorrows of not being able to get on the rock with a free drink at the Gold Dust Lounge.

Anyone with a now useless ticket to Alcatraz can present it at the bar and receive two-for-one drinks. The lounge states that "the offer is good until the republicans sober up."

We'll drink to that.
