Transfer of license approved for Hot Shots

The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County on Wednesday approved the transfer of the liquor license at Hot Shots Tavern, 6 N. Mulberry St., to the business' new owner.

Robert L. Everhart, commission chairman, said the bar has changed hands several times over the years and used to be a problem spot.

Hot Shots has turned around, however, to become an upstanding neighborhood establishment, he said.

The Class D license allows for the sale of beer, wine and liquor.

Fan club asks to hold tailgate parties

Representatives from a Hagerstown area Pittsburgh Steelers fan club on Wednesday asked Washington County liquor officials for permission to hold tailgate parties outside the Colonial Inn at 14130 Pennsylvania Ave. in Hagerstown.

The tailgate parties would be held before Steelers games.

The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County said it would consider granting permission if the club designated an enclosed area for the parties.


The club would not be permitted to furnish its own alcohol, the commissioners said.

Request for catering business considered

The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County is considering a request that would give the operators of the Next Dimensions restaurant in Hagerstown permission to open a catering business in the convention center at the Clarion Hotel on U.S. 40.

If the request is granted, the catering business would be allowed to serve alcohol, the commissioners said.

The people who made the request, Brad Sheldon and Mary Hoffman, were instructed to fill out an application and come back to the commissioners for another meeting.

The date of that meeting was not decided.
