L.O.

Im sure it is very obvious, and Ill probably be embarrassed once I find out what it stands for, but here it goes.

Im looking at the website for a restaurant I am interesting in trying.
When looking at their dinner hours, it is written as follows

5pm - 10:30 pm L.O.

What does L.O. Stand for ??

Im dont know why, but I just cant get it.

Thanks.

Thanks, that's what I figured.
I just had a temporary lapse of thinking.

Sometimes you just get a mental block.

Reminds me of a local pizzeria where they close when they run out of dough.

I never would have thought of Last Order......makes sense though.

It only made sense to me when was investigating a bit, and saw another restaurant list something similar 5pm - 11pm ( L.O. 10pm).
Once I saw this, I assumed it was the last seating but wasn't sure of the exact words they sanded for ( figured 'L' was Last, I had no clue what the 'O' Was for, but Order makes sense.
