    ABC suspended their liquor license for 96 hours after this fight- they were completely shut down but got permission to reopen carryout only.

      This is why people don’t want bars in their neighborhoods, Dan — alluding back to earlier posts.

    Sad trombone. I came here expecting the chairs to have come from place-saving in street parking spots.

  • Don Juan’s is a popular restaurant in Mount Pleasant, and the MPD closure elicited an outpouring of support from residents. The MPD wanted to terminate the liquor license, declaring that the restaurant “severely endangers the residents and visitors of this city”. No, it doesn’t, said many Mount Pleasant residents, and ABRA declined to inflict any punishment beyond the 96-hour closure.
