World Of Beer Opening At 412 Market

Thursday, August 7, 2014 - by Gail Perry

A new restaurant will be opening at 412 Market St. that will have a tap wall as well as bottled beer. World of Beer will have a capacity of 275 and will have live music on Thursday through Saturday night when it will be open from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. On Sunday through Wednesday closing time is 1 a.m.

This business was given a consumer license as well as a take-out by the City Beer Board. The carry-out beer will be sold in bottles not growlers.

 TGI Friday’s at 2 Broad Street was given a new license due to an ownership change. Employees there are all TIPS trained and must be re-evaluated each year. The server is responsible for keeping up with the two drink maximum at the tables that they serve. After that, they are cut off from alcohol sales. Service is refused if it is deemed that a customer arrives intoxicated and local police officers are notified of their presence in the area.

 Dos Amigos Mexican Restaurant, 3208 Amnicola Highway, has 95 percent food sales and the rest in alcohol. This restaurant has been in business for three years but was required to get a new beer permit because of an ownership change.

 Red Lobster also has a new owner which necessitated the restaurant at 2200 Bams Dr. to apply for a new beer license. This restaurant allows a customer three drinks before they are cut off.

After a late Saturday night out at the drive-in, Lionel and I decided to enjoy the beautiful weather on Sunday and take it easy. The idea of a late home-cooked brunch was enticing, but neither of us was up to the task of actually getting off the couch and into the kitchen. “We could always try Bea's,” he suggested, looking up from his homemade VHS cleaning contraption. ...

Thankful For The Vital Role Teachers Played In My Life

Re: Roy Exum: Teachers Day Tomorrow Roy, I am especially appreciative of your poignant column written in tribute to teachers.  It made me tear up, as I have encountered both as a student and a career educator-- teachers like the second-grade teacher who said, "I wish you were my little girl" and teachers like Mrs. Poindexter.   My teachers have played such a vital ...

Roy Exum: The DA’s Cold-Case Quest

It is clearly a job nobody can do for over an hour or two, but Neal Pinkston, working in hand with precise professionals from the county’s auditing department, is intent on doing the right thing. As I watched a revolving team of four people at a time open and study envelopes of autopsy photographs on Tuesday, the scene would have made a fascinating television documentary. But ...
