Alcohol Sales at Lake Harriet One Step Closer
The City of Minneapolis has the final say on beer and wine at the Bread and Pickle on Lake Harriet.
The Park Board has already voted to support the liquor license application of Bread and Pickle to serve beer and wine. But, some City officials say they want to limit the sale of liquor to just the back patio of the concession restaurant. Some folks don't think limiting the space is smart because it means you could not legally drink the beer or wine at the band shell where movies and music play.
Other concessions such as Tin Fish on Lake Calhoun and Sea Salt at Minnehaha Park have liquor licenses. Tin Fish is limited to beer and wine on its patio. Sea Salt has no limitations and the new Sand Castle appearing at Lake Nokomis also has a liquor license but the City has not yet imposed any restrictions.
There will be a public hearing at Minneapolis City Hall, Monday, April 29th at 1:30-pm in Room 317. A final vote by the full City Council will come May 10th.
