North Brooklyn’s community board approved new liquor license rules this week that will make it an even bigger headache to open rooftop and backyard bars in the area. Existing outdoorsy bars, like Trophy Bar and Union Pool, can relax, but new applicants will now need "a full kitchen on the premises if they intend to operate a bar with a rooftop or backyard space." Plus, the bar-hopefuls need neighborhood signatures and other time-sucking new, stringent paperwork. [Brooklyn Paper]
