Dufty drops by nightlife safety summit 

Supervisor Bevan Dufty dropped by a city-sponsored nightlife safety summit Wednesday afternoon to deliver this message: he still goes to clubs to “shake his tail.”

“I’m still on the hunt so I go out all the time,” Dufty said.

That’s partly why he wants to have a thriving nightlife in San Francisco. The Entertainment Commission in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office and the Office of Small Business hosted this nightlife safety summit to bring promoters, clubs and police officers in the same room to talk about how to make The City a safe place to go clubbing at night.

The four-hour summit came on the heels of Saturday’s shooting in the Castro district during the annual Pink Saturday pride event. The summit allowed promoters and club owners to air some of their concerns about how to balance safety and fun.

“The ecology of the nightlife and people going out in this city requires attention and constant communication,” Dufty said.
