Big-Kahuna Wings Opens Near The Aquarium

Friday, October 18, 2019 - by Gail Perry

Big-Kahuna Wings-Chattanooga is a new restaurant at 203 Aquarium Way, located near the Aquarium’s parking lot. The owners already operate two of these restaurants in Knoxville. This restaurant will also have a full ABC license. Approval was given by the City Beer Board for a Consumer-Carry-Out license.

 

Imperial Garden, 2288 Gunbarrel Road. Ste.

142 and Asian Flavor, 4839 Highway 58, have both changed ownership and are now both owned by Xue Hai Zheng. Both were approved to sell beer at the beer board meeting Thursday.

 

Newk’s Eatery #1176 at 2380 Lifestyle Way was also approved for a consumer beer permit.

 

A Carry-Out beer licenses was given to Haroon Joseph for his second store, Joe’s Smoke One, 2101 McCallie Ave.

Also at the Chattanooga Beer Board meeting, McKamey Animal Center, 4500 N. Access Road, was given a consumer beer license. The animal shelter holds special events in order to raise funds for the facility. Each time one is planned, a representative from McKamey must come to a Chattanooga Beer Board meeting to apply for a special events beer permit. On Thursday, Paula Hurn, operations and human resources manager for McKamey applied for and received a permanent consumer beer permit that will be used only for their special events. Lee Towry will be doing the catering and she has ABC permitted employees who will serve at these functions along with two employees of McKamey who are also trained servers. Volunteers will be checking IDs. This consumer license was approved with the warning that no employee can ever drink at the events even if they are off-the-clock.

 

William Walker, district manager of Aramark, received approval for a consumer beer license that will be used at McKenzie Arena, at 720 E. 4th Ave. UTC already holds a beer permit for the University Center and a caterer’s license for the campus, but there is no permit for the arena itself. This license will allow beer sales in the arena. There will be three segregated booths selling beer, each manned by three people and UTC police will be at the gates and roving. Food will also be sold from separate booths. All servers will have TIPS training and will know what to look for when selling alcohol. Designated drivers will be offered non-alcoholic beverages. Storage of the beer will be in lockable cages with only two people having access to one key. After an event, distributors will pick up leftover beer. Board Member Vince Butler suggested wristbands so there will be a visible aid to help monitor underage drinking.
