BY COUNCILOR KRAUSE:
BE IT RESOLVED, that the city council of the city of Duluth hereby approves issuance of an additional bar license for the following on sale intoxicating liquor license for the period ending August 31, 2006, subject to departmental approvals:
S&D Enterprises, Inc. (Gopher Restaurant and Lounge), 402 North Central Avenue.
Alcohol gambling and tobacco commission discussion of 7/7/2006: Steve LaPlante was present on behalf of the application. Mr. LaPlante explained that currently his lower level is used for pool leagues and tournaments and would like to put an additional bar in the lower level. He reviewed that his lower level is included in his licensed premises, and now wants to set up a bar to keep the pool players in the basement and not disturb his patrons on the main floor. The clerk explained that an additional bar is a bar that people can sit at and the city requires a fee for this bar, but does not require a fee for a service bar where no seating is available. To questioning by the commission, Mr. LaPlante replied that he will be hiring extra staff to accommodate this new addition. There being no further discussion, Mr. Hanson moved that THE APPLICATION OF S&D ENTERPRISES, INC. (GOPHER RESTAURANT & LOUNGE) 402 NORTH CENTRAL AVENUE, FOR AN ADDITIONAL BAR FOR THE PERIOD ENDING AUGUST 31, 2006, BE APPROVED, AND THE SAME BE RECOMMENDED TO THE CITY COUNCIL FOR APPROVAL. Mr. Anderson seconded the motion and it was unanimously approved.
