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.

Do Something To Protect Our Children

It is unconscionable in this day and age that these children had to exist in such deplorable conditions and that an innocent baby suffered and died alone in a locked car.  Yes, there is blame and accountability considering this family had child neglect charges filed a few years ago (that were apparently dropped and expunged) and a large part of the responsibility should ...
