And the Beat Goes On...

As though the past year hasn't been any indication, the City of Westbrook has officially cultivated an obsession for finding ways to bureaucratically harass Skybox Bar & Grill. The PPH:

The status of the Skybox Bar and Grill, the
controversial pub at the corner of Brown and North streets, is up in the air
again. The city’s municipal officers--its council and mayor--voted not to renew
the bar’s license to sell food last night. The vote is the latest blow to
resident Allen Moore, who has sought to re-open the pub since last summer and
has clashed with City Hall over licensing and permitting issues ever since. The
decision effectively blocks his plans to open the establishment, because bars
are required to sell food to maintain their liquor licenses.
I hereby channel my inner spaghetti Western version of Clint Eastwood and challenge any City official to an unedited debate about this bar's right to be open on this site.

Loser buys the victor a dollar pint of PBR--at Skybox.
