Ludlow Manor Busted for Operating Without a Liquor License

Even palm trees and cocktails can't solve this.

We thought Luc Carl was an authority on boozing, but it seems the Lady Gaga love interest has forgotten one basic thing: If you're going to serve the hooch, you need the SLA's approval. The Lo-Down was present at last night's CB3 meeting, "where members of the liquor licensing committee read [Carl] the riot act." It seems his recently opened Ludlow Manor has been scooting by for over a month now with special-events permits rather than a regular liquor license. And this hasn't endeared the place any to the folks in a position to grant a license. Yikes: sounds like trouble in palm-tree-lined paradise. [Lo-Down]
