D.C.’s latest expansion of its night life scene isn’t another social spot — but in the form of a “Night Mayor.”

To be more formal, D.C.’s Office of Nightlife and Culture is actually looking to hire a director, whose main responsibilities will be to “coordinate District government agencies, businesses, and community groups to manage the after-hours economy, and work with the Commission of Nightlife to advise the Mayor, Council, and Office of Nightlife on common issues and trends relating to the after-hours economy,” according to the job description posted earlier this month on the Mayor’s Office of Talent and Appointments.

The post, which was proposed a year ago by Councilman Brandon Todd (D-Ward 4), will pay between $97,434 and $118,000 annually.

Meanwhile, Mayor Muriel Bowser recently tweeted that she officially remains the city’s mayor — morning, noon and night.
