    Over a dozen liquor permits were granted a few yrs back for C-vill. So WTF? Sounds like some developers can’t get their xxxx off the ground.

    How do you figure? There are three sites which were granted liquor permits quite a while back that are sitting empty. Northstar opened up recently on what was a long vacant lot that sat for years with a beer (and I think wine) license.
    Honestly, I think that most of Clintonville people just aren’t go-out-to-eat people.
    And +1 on Walker’s take.

    Exactly my point, you’re naming 3 specific sites in Clintonville. I think that would quailify as a limit on alcohol. My thing is that Cville would benefit from having a few blocks that each had 2-3 restaurants. To achieve that I think they would all need to serve liquor. I get your point on Northstar, but honestly NS is a pretty specialized restaurant and it’s not like there’s a bar in there. I doubt much of their business relys on alcohol sales.

    The sites approved for alcohol (not necessarily a license) were owned by a developer looking into getting other businesses into their spaces, but if you have to go through a ballot to get a liquor license, it’s easier to take business elsewhere. It’s less risky to get a lease in another area with no licenses and then just buy one on the open market. So the scenario is an example of why things aren’t right for bringing in more restaurants and bars to Clintonville.

    So are you running for CAC, Dan, or are you going to continue complain from the sidelines?

    I’ve decided to run for CAC, as the better food businesses candidate. I only have four requirements to start this move into public office:

    1. No one can say or think mean things about me.
    2. No one can look into my history. (Especially my late teens and early twenties.)
    3. Someone else has to raise my campaign money.
    4. No public speaking.

    Please do run! I will be your campaign manager!!!

    The Booster reports on the growing variety of food trucks in Clintonville.

    I’m glad Yerba Buena found another location in the neighborhood. I really hope they don’t have the same kind of issues at their new location.

    I just tried The Coop last night. Fantastic food and they had PawPaw Smoothies!

    I swear I just read somewhere a notice about a meeting in Clintonville to discuss food trucks, that sounded to me like an attempt to regulate them out of the neighborhood. But I cannot for the life of me find it now. Perhaps you saw it, and can like to it here…

    Clintonville has truly been one of the most consistently disappointing neighborhoods in the city, to me.

    I hope that the outcome of this meeting gives me reason to feel differently.

    I agree 100%. It’s a fairly fun-less zone, because for whatever reason, the people there must not enjoy fun.

    Sounds like someone’s never been to our Hustler store.

    What is the most fun spot in Clintonville? Living south of there I have no desire to go north except for shopping.
    IMO the most fun spot is my friend Steve’s house.

    Graybeak, I think this is the article you are looking for.

    Interesting that there has been so little publicity about this meeting. Blazer is known to be a Team DeFourny member, so assuming that he’s anti-food truck (and possibly anti-fun!) wouldn’t be a stretch.

    The article says the meeting is Thursday the 26th. Is anyone going?

    I forgot about The Coop. I can’t endorse it enough. Cliffside is north of Arcadia, so it is in Clintonville, right?

    Keep your insults to yourself. You’re contributing nothing of value to this discussion.

    Special credit to anyone old enough to know the original tenant of the building where the Coop parks.
