Usually, getting on a list to gain access to bars in New York takes a few strings or being a former child actress. But in Stockton, Calif., all it takes is a Facebook account.

Owner Tony Mannor told ABC News that he implemented “Facebook Friday,” which doesn’t sound as fun as “Tue for One Tuesdays,” to keep the bar safe from drunkenly raged-filled customers who pick fights. The guest list reportedly cut down on violence so much that it’s now implemented on Saturdays.
