SLA spokesman Bill Crowley tells us that although the authority provisionally approved a liquor-license application in 2006, it ultimately rejected it last Friday (as indicated by documents weve obtained), since the place hadnt yet acquired or submitted a certificate of occupancy, among other things. Weve heard the venue passed a recent inspection (this somewhat hilarious video depicting its construction is the last time it was photographed, months ago), but Crowley says its unlikely a license application can be resubmitted and approved by April. A shame: We cant wait till the T-shirt slogan Fuck this, Im going to Santas is on the lips of every downtown hipster who gets turned away from Beatrice.
