Four business partners have applied for a liquor license for a former carpet warehouse located behind Colorado Lace at 200 East Seventh Avenue. Aside from the cleaners, the large building is currently gutted inside.
And it's just up the street from Racines, which built a new home on Sherman Street -- complete with a parking garage, since parking is at a premium in this neighborhood -- six years ago.
"We intend to open a craft beer and food tavern at that location," says Robert Giaquinta, one of the partners, via e-mail. "We are currently looking for local residents/businesses to support us at our Liquor Board hearing on December 22nd."
