Barefoot Bernie's representatives describe plans for patio
Representatives from Barefoot Bernie's Bar & Grille on Dual Highway in Hagerstown told the Washington County liquor board on Wednesday that they would like to build a patio next to the business to accommodate outside dining.
Joe Rouse, an attorney for Barefoot Bernie's, said the patio would be about 14 feet by 25 feet and enclosed by a rope. People would have to enter the restaurant first to gain access to the patio, he said.
Robert Everhart, chairman of the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, said he was concerned that patrons might carry off alcohol from the patio. Rouse assured Everhart that employees would be stationed on the patio to prevent anything illegal from happening.
