How would you like to sit down and have a beer while watching Olympic hockey at 6 a.m.?

City councillor Mike Layton is in favour of it, and he's putting forth a motion next week that would allow restaurants and bars to begin serving alcohol at 6 a.m.

However, that would only be for the last four days of the winter games.

Layton told The Star, he was asked by someone on Twitter if council would consider extending the serving hours, much like when the World Cup tournament was held in 2010.

Team Canada's men's gold medal game will be held on February 23 at 7 a.m. and Layton says they will also consider extending serving hours for the women's bronze medal game on February 20 at 7 a.m.

The gold medal women's match is at 11 o'clock that morning.
