Chocolate Park owners warned to 'clean it up'



Washington County liquor officials on Wednesday warned the owners of the Chocolate Park tavern on McAfee Hill Road in Cascade to "clean it up" following complaints that were levied against rowdy customers last month.

Charles F. Mades, treasurer of the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, told James and Sherry Engler, the owners of Chocolate Park, that the disorderly behavior needed to stop.

"You don't want a bad reputation," Mades said. "You have to clean it up a little."

One of the complaints was an assault, Mades said. The other involved an incident in which an intoxicated man purposely backed into another vehicle in the parking lot.

The liquor board agreed that the warning was punishment enough.

Adam O'Brien, the owner of Decourcy's Pub at 139 N. Mulberry St., told the liquor board that he is locked out of the business because of a rent dispute, Everhart said. O'Brien asked about the steps he would need to follow to transfer his liquor license.

Everhart said O'Brien showed the liquor board a petition from neighborhood residents that said they wanted Decourcy's to move. The liquor board will hold O'Brien's license, Everhart said, until a solution is found.
