    I know this was mentioned briefly in the Sloopy’s thread, but I figured it was worth giving some additional attention due to the longer list of establishments.

    From here: http://www.dispatchpolitics.com/live/content/local_news/stories/2009/12/09/copy/liquorobject.ART_ART_12-09-09_B3_2NFUHQ0.html?adsec=politics&sid=101

    seems like most of these are not even bars but more like quick marts. I will say a few of those make total sense.

    Is Zeno’s on the list just for cigarette violations? I don’t really think of that place as rowdy.

    I saw Zeno’s on the list on the news the other night. While I always hated that they let people smoke, I did go there a lot during undergrad. I miss that place. I haven’t been in years.

    Read the PDF linked in the original post; it cites Zeno’s for underage sales, and two counts of “insanitary conditions”, as well as 1 telephone harassment (?) and motor vehicle theft.

    I always thought it was “unsanitary”; insanitary just sounds crazy!

    Zeno’s stole a car?

    I suppose you get cited for any wrongdoing that happens on your property? You should read Sloopy’s list.

    Pay Less Auto Service?

    So if these business’ lose their booze licenses will this free up those licenses for new establishments? Is there a finite number of allowable liquor licenses within an area?

    Zeno’s has actually stopped allowing people to smoke inside. It’s about time. They must have gotten tired of paying all those fines.

    I think there’s some kind of limit per square mile or something like that. UA recently passed an exemption for the Kingsdale area so they could put several restaurants there – but maybe that’s UA and not Columbus.

    Columbus limits the number of licenses available for a particular area.

    I think Athens has a limited number of liquor licenses available. Seems like generally such limits are set by population.

    Edit: Columbus also limits the amount of wine one household can purchase in one year.

    Correction: Ohio limits wine purchases. Lighten up, Ohio.

    Jesus. I wonder what kind of immorality they think will result if households exceed 600ml of wine per day.

    I’m pretty sure that’s the State of Ohio, not Columbus

    Perhaps ask Andrew? I’m sure he could give a full account :-)
