At last night’s Community Board 3 SLA Committee, Nevada Smith’s owner Patrick McCarthy was confronted by several East Village neighbors opposing his application to sell liquor at the sports bar’s new location, still under construction, on Third Avenue between 12th and 13th streets. “It’s horrible there — the noise, the mobs of people on the streets. How much can we take?” said Ann Goulder, a local, speaking about the area. One SLA committee member did come to Nevada’s defense, calling it a soccer bar of “high value to the neighborhood.” Yeah. That.
New location, same troubles.
