Should Spec’s Liquor Stay or Shutdown?
March 23, 2009


What do you think:  Should Spec’s Liquor Stay or  Shutdown?

The Spec’s   located at the intersection of  Washington and Westcott  is 675 feet from  Memorial Elementary School.


At that close proximity,  Spec’s is in violation of city and state ordinances  that prohibit the sell of alcohol within 1000 feet of a public school.

The lawsuit admits that the city secretary’s office made a mistake when it issued the permit.

At this point Spec’s has two choices according to a lawsuit filed by the Harris County Attorney’s Office.

Either it has to shut down, or change the retail mix of its business: sell more food than alcohol.
