He's allowed to open what ever is lawful. Nobody and I mean nobody has the right to say otherwise. If he shows that he can't run a bar that stays within the guidelines of the LCB, then people can bitch.

They don't even serve liquor, it would be a family joint.

Oh yeah, those "family joints" (joints - no pun intended) are the bestiestest! While mom is propositioning potential customers, the kiddies can chase each other down the middle of the street, tryin' to stick each other with used drug needles. Hope it open sooner than soon! Got my vote!

Sex in the church parking lot?! Forgive me father for I have sinned!

In any case I think this place seems like it would be friendly enough with the early 10p closing time. It sounds like it would be more like a Vito's Pizza & Beer joint rather than just a full on bar where people go to get trashed and be sinners in the church parking lot.

It would probably be a good draw for the Penn State and York College students in the area granted the place isn't trashy. Environment is everything and if the place looks like a dump it's going to draw some pretty nasty activity.

it was already ar bar so they could actually get the zoning approval. and technically even if they don't get the liquor license approved they could still open a private club for members only and still serve beer and liquor...all perfectly legal. gotta love loop holes.

as a resident, I think it's good for the city tax base....as a restaurateur, the area might be a bit rough to keep it from what it was....so, keep the prices moderate, have a discerning eye and establish the reputation of a decent place...best of luck!!!

Geez, folks that live and/or have Stewartstown IP addresses surely should not be castigating others. Such half wits, adding their two cents worth, if they departed the area, probably would not improve things much. They should depart their trailers and move into the real York City ghetto area; more suiting of their intelligence, or lack of! Hey, just adding my two cents worth, ain't!

Just what the city needs another bar, pizza and wings joint. The city continues to recruit and give deals to these nuisance businesses driving the few reamining taxpaying homeowners out.

...sorry, meant folks. Why are Clarks Summit folks so involved on this blog. Clarks Summit is just a suburb of Scranton, noted for it's outdated strip-malls and one US Hwy going through to better areas.
Good for any business person making a go of it in York, the taxes are high, the local leaders want you to do their bidding...but forget these communists and get capitalism in York again!

O, the only thing I can see is when a person tries to bring a bussiness to the city peole want to critize it. People should not judge because of the location. It sound like this person is going to do anything possible to keep it up and running.
The hours are responsible. The only thing I see here is the location. Give it a chance, this could be a help to revitalize a neighbor hood that other wise could be left to die.

The Ip addresses are not always represenitive of the actual location.
Mine is of another state but only because i am working here a short time.
But live in york.

If i have my location right I think that church used to be a XXX theater! Now that was something to complain about! My point being, things change, people change, locations change. This could be a good thing for the area, just depends on how the owner runs the place. Give him a chance.

they used to have great chicken but a rough crowd. when i went in back in the early 90s, it was like the classic bar scene from animal house. on that night, i was a minority.

want to bet the City allows it to open? It seems that the only businesses that have been opned and touted as revitalizing the city are bars and nightclubs!
