Outdoor liquor license granted for new restaurant

Washington County liquor officials on Wednesday granted an outdoor liquor license to the owner of Bulls and Bears, a restaurant that is to open by the end of September at 38 S. Potomac St. in Hagerstown.

Robert L. Everhart, chairman of the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, said liquor officials would hold the license until the restaurant opens for business.

Bulls and Bears general manager Steve Kemmet said in July that the restaurant, which is owned by developer Don Bowman, will serve American cuisine and adopt a Wall Street theme.

Complaint against The Peach Pub dismissed

The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County on Wednesday voted unanimously to dismiss a complaint recently filed against The Peach Pub at 43 S. Potomac St. in Hagerstown.


The complaint was filed by a neighbor, who alleged patrons had consumed alcohol outside the business on more than one occasion, said Robert L. Everhart, board chairman.

David Peacher, owner of The Peach Pub, said he wasn't aware there was a problem. The person who filed the complaint "will complain and continue to complain," Peacher said. "If there is a problem, we want to address it and solve it."

Hagerstown Police Department Patrolman Jesse Duffey testified on Peacher's behalf, saying the complainant had a "vendetta" against The Peach Pub.

The board dismissed the complaint for lack of sufficient evidence.
