The Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, granted a sidewalk cafe license Wednesday to the owners of The Peach Pub restaurant at 43 S. Potomac St. in Hagerstown.

The Peach Pub is the fourth business to obtain a sidewalk cafe license in downtown Hagerstown. Earlier this year, the liquor board granted licenses to The Schmankerl Stube Bavarian Restaurant, Bulls & Bears and Duffy's on Potomac.

Grand Venice Hotel manager seeks reduction to $500 fine

The manager of the Grand Venice Hotel on Dual Highway on Wednesday asked the Washington County liquor board to reduce a $500 fine levied against the business last month.

Nithin Jayadeva said after the meeting that he thought the fine was "a bit high."

The fine was imposed after the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, determined in August that the management allowed the sale of alcohol in a portion of the building that was not licensed.

The liquor board agreed to review the file and return with a decision within 30 days.

The owner of Cavetown Liquors on Mapleville Road near Smithsburg told the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, that he wanted to transfer his liquor license to the business' new owners.

Robert L. Everhart, liquor board chairman, said the Kims would have to file an application and wait 30 days for a decision.
