Can he get me into a club for free? Does he just party all night? What about a discount on a table at Bliss? I mean, he has to be able to tell me when the next big party in DC is, right?

Shawn Townsend explains that his position serves businesses that operate after 5pm. They help with noise complaints, alcohol regulation, parking and more. So his position isn’t to get you into the club for free or tell where the next big party will be, that’s what is for!
