When are you going to send some undercover to "Roy's cafe"?
Just wondering...

Roy's seems to run a pretty tight ship, at least from what I've seen on blues nights. But everyone should keep on their toes. If people keep selling to minors, that's more ammo to get rid of booze alltogether!

They will never do that to "Roy’s", they are part of the "old boys club"…
They did it to the "Black Jack". From the beginning to the end they harassed the owner until they put him out of business so the "old boys" could monopolize the entertainment in town.

I've often wondered how many bars this town could feasibly support. We have Roy's and there was Max'x but I guess it closed when The Other Place did and of course, it had a bar area. Then there's the Longbranch and the VFW. Have I missed any bars here in town? I went to the Black Jack one time before we moved here. Nice place but I can't imagine it ever was full to capacity. I guess Napoli's has a bar area, too. Personally, I enjoy Roy's. I've never gone on a weekend night so I don't know how many people cram in there on Fri/Sat. If any of you were in the "old boys club" would you open another establishment? How do you think it would do? Also, are there any good places here to have food and drinks on a patio? I miss that now that the weather is nice again.

First of all they don’t give permits for bars only for restaurants. Roy’s owners were very clever, they already had the restaurant so they open the bar on the side claiming that is a restaurant when in reality is a bar. They make most of their money in food during the day so they can open the bar during the night. You have to sell about 50% alcohol and 50% food so that’s how these bars are getting away, they are bars but their food money comes from the other side (the restaurant). If you apply for a bar only which is easier and cheaper to operate they will not give you a permit. The “Bible Bangers” running this town won’t allow it. You will see,“Max’s” is for sale but once they sell it they wont give the new owner a permit for a bar anymore. You would think this morons would allow bars because if you have a bar you can’t allow minors to enter the place so in that way is safer but they don’t see it the same way. These restaurants are selling alcohol and minors can come and buy indirectly the drinks. This is just another example of the level of intelligence of the people running this town. They run it with primitive ideas that don’t work.

I agree that bars w/o RR's are a better way to avoid underaged drinking. I wonder where the people who used to go to Max's and TOP's bar are going now? So, I guess my question now is: If you were in the good old boy club, would you open a rr/bar? And would it be a money maker?

I sure wish I knew who was in this old boy club I hear so much about...from one person. Last I knew the city manager and most department heads are women.

“Old boys” include women too…
The “Old boys” are a group of people that has been here for a long time and they have power and money.
I will not disclose names. They are well known.

The old boys and girls club certainly exists. We need to clean house at City hall. Census was posted online at 26,000 plus since 2009, now it is slightly more than 23,000. Going in the right direction. No, they put all their eggs in one basket and that basket breaks. and they have nothing else to look toward. THE CM is a poor leader. She is typical control monger, does not think out of the box, unless forced to make changes. She has made some changes during the budget crisis, but as soon as a little money comes back, starts the same old same old again, with "friends" inside the city hall
