Drinking in 300 East this weekend?

Dateline: Wed 17 Jan 2007

As everyone knew would happen, the Marion County Alcoholic Beverage Board gave its wink and nod to 300 East at Tuesday's hearing. So the Julia Carson Government Center is officially blessed with a bar. That in itself is not the end of the world, but the process was a farce from the beginning -- a rich man's shell game in which rules were broken and proper process forgotten.

Remonstrators who showed up Tuesday with the names of residents who objected to the bar were ignored.

One TV channel last night said the bar is hoping to open its doors in time for the Superbowl. I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't over there this weekend, lapping up the drinks and having a great time.
