No sex in the champagne room. No crying in baseball. No place like home. No alcoholic beverages served after the 7th inning.

Located between San Jose and San Francisco, Belmont is, according to their website: ‘Known for its wooded hills, views of San Francisco Bay, and stretches of open space...’ and they’re about to known for their ridiculous laws.
