“Sometimes it's confusing having to explain how it actually works to the staff and patrons,” says Nate Rubendall, night manager at Mulligan's.
Mulligan's typically closes at 3 a.m. but with the clocks moving forward, the staff started cleaning up the bar closer to 4 a.m. on Sunday morning.
After the last drink some patrons head out for post bar grub.
“So we get bar hoppers for a little bit longer than we usually do. Usually it all dies down around 4 a.m. but tonight I expect it to die down around 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. maybe,” explains Edgar Ramos, supervisor at a local 24 hour restaurant.
Ramos says as the morning goes on customers will keep walking in, so he doesn't feel much of a time change.
“It will be seven hours instead of the typical eight. It still feels the same. I don't know why, I can't explain it,” says Ramos.
Both Rubendall and Ramos say working weekends at a bar and 24 hour restaurant is usually busy so it keeps their mind off the time.
