Stone’s Throw to Columbus

Posted by on Jul 9, 2014 in blog, In the Press | Comments Off on Stone’s Throw to Columbus

In its search for a new distribution center and restaurant, Stone Brewing Co. has given a nod to Columbus. Mayor Coleman and John Lowe, CEO of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, visited the California based company to vie for the new location. Columbus’s micro and craft brewing has been on a steady rise, and adding Stone Brewing Co. would really solidify it as a brewing powerhouse.  Local Columbus brewers assured Stone that the city is “a big beer market” with plenty of additional upside to a Columbus location. Along with an already impressive brewing district and beer market, Columbus has a large base of graduates that would make an impressive work force. Stone has some very specific requirements, such as enough room for both a brewery and restaurant within a mile of a major freeway, but is very eager to...

Gallery Hop Purveyors Should Learn from Cleveland Gallery Raid

Posted by on Jun 16, 2014 in blog, In the Press | Comments Off on Gallery Hop Purveyors Should Learn from Cleveland Gallery Raid

With gallery hop season in full swing, purveyors and patrons should be aware of the proper protocol when it comes to serving alcoholic beverages at special events.  Recently, a gallery in Cleveland faced some trouble after owner Loren Naji allegedly gave away free alcohol at his opening. The police raided the event after several noise and overcrowding complaints by neighbors, only to find over $700 worth of wine and beer being served. Unfortunately, Naji failed to apply for an F2, a temporary liquor permit for cultural events. While serving free wine or beer to patrons of a gallery is not new, Naji attracted far too much attention to remain undetected. Naji claims to not have known a permit was required, along with many other local gallery owners who were contacted. Other gallery owners insist Naji was being excessive with...

Ski Resort Loses Lease

Posted by on May 23, 2014 in blog, In the Press | Comments Off on Ski Resort Loses Lease

Park City Utah is well known for being a resort town for skiing, as well as some famous events like Sundance. Recently, the owners of one of these ski resorts, Park City Mountain Resort, lost its lease to a neighboring resort, not for lack of payment or violations, but rather for being two days late on their renewal. During this time, Park City Mountain Resort, unaware their renewal was late and unaccepted, invested over $7 million in renovations. The landlord refused to accept the late renewal, and additional offers from Park City Mountain Resort, allowing neighboring Vail Resort to acquire major portions of the mountain. Park City Mountain Resort has been entrenched in a three year legal battle to reclaim its territory, and find themselves on the losing end. Courts affirm that the lease agreement had specific dates to...

Dispatch: Bars rarely punished for happy hour violations

Posted by on Feb 7, 2011 in blog, In the Press, Media, Ohio Liquor Law | Comments Off on Dispatch: Bars rarely punished for happy hour violations

Bars rarely punished for breaking happy-hour, minimum-pricing laws Monday, February 7, 2011 02:52 AM By Dean Narciso THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH The Tipsy Bar in the University District might be on shaky ground with its advertising. On “Tipsy Tuesdays,” a sign in the window of the watering hole on N. High Street near Lane Avenue proclaims, the bar offers 50-cent pitchers of Natural Light beer from 9 p.m. until closing. State law prohibits happy-hour pricing after 9 p.m. It also requires minimum pricing, more than 50 cents for a pitcher of beer. The laws are intended to discourage excessive consumption of alcohol and bargain prices past a reasonable hour. But the state agency with the authority to cite violators rarely does, even though examples of violations are easy to find. Since 2007, the Ohio Investigative Unit, a branch of the...
