Update on BBQ's on the Public Way
This past Monday July 7, 2014 at the Park Manor Neighbors community Council(PMNCC) monthly meeting the issue of BBQ's on the public way was addressed. Two businesses were singled out about this issue. The Goal Post lounge on 71st and Luversia's Soul Food on 79th. Residents let owners of both businesses that they did not want businesses BBQ on the public way unless there was a special event and proper permits were obtained. The resident's wishes were backed up by Alderman Sawyer who had previously addressed the business owners. The owner of the building that houses the Goal Post, and who is applying to transfer the license to him, stated it would not happen in the future as well as he would address other issues with the lounge. The owner of Luversia's stated he did purely for marketing as his business has suffered from the negative publicity surrounding 79th.
