The Mix, Rhythm And Brews Get 3-Day Beer License Suspensions

Friday, November 3, 2006

The City Beer Board on Thursday voted to suspend the beer license for three days at The Mix at 405 Market St. after testimony about a highly intoxicated woman outside the club.

A similar suspension was put in place for Rhythm and Brews.

Officer John Collins said the woman was leaning against a wall and was extremely drunk. He said the woman told him she had five beers at home "to get a buzz" and then was served three shots of alcohol in the club.

Arvin Reingold, attorney for The Mix, said the woman told him earlier she had taken medication along with the earlier drinks and that she got sick after ordering a drink.

The vote was 4-2 for the suspension that begins next Thursday.

The Mix was also charged in a case in which a female Chattanooga State student was caught inside with a fake ID.

In this case, there was discussion over whether The Mix is a restaurant or a bar. A new city ordinance bans those under 21 from businesses defined as bars.

Attorney Reingold said The Mix has a full-time chef and serves lunch and dinner.

Officer Collins said he had never seen anyone preparing any food at The Mix.

The club, headed by Danny Williams, is to bring records on food sales and drink sales to the next Beer Board meeting.

The Mix plans to appeal the decision, officials said.
