My Second Home Owner Itching for a Fight Over Beer Garden
Now, with Wisconsin's indoor workplace smoking ban in effect, La Crosse bars are hurriedly working on places for their smokers to go. My Second Home on the city's northside had plans for an outdoor beer garden. But a city council committee has voted against the bar's permit. Owner Mike Dwyer says that doesn't make much sense. He says, if denied a beer garden permit, that means his customers will simply spill out into the streets causing a far greater disturbance than if he's allowed to send them out into a partially enclosd patio. The full council votes on Dwyer's permit tonight.
