Van Smith of the Baltimore City Paper sits down and talks with two of the three members of the Baltimore City Liquor Board on a variety of pending bills proposing modifications of Baltimore City liquor laws.
Go grab a dead-trees copy out of the ubiquitous yellow boxes, or read the piece here.
Thoughts: On the one hand, it's a good thing, in the view of this libertarian, to see a liquor board aware of the issues that confront an evolving business environment, and adjust accordingly. On the other hand, why does it take a freaking act of the state legislature for the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore to tweak its liquor license? (Heck, aside from the annual Brew at the Zoo--which, by the way, is May 26-27 this year--were you even aware that the Maryland Zoo had to have its own liquor license?!?!?)
