Boulder, Colorado Business Fights for Right to Sell Booze

BOULDER, Colo. – According to a report from Rockymountainnews.com, “A month after a University Hill burger joint won a legal struggle over Boulder’s authority to limit liquor sales, another business is considering taking the same argument to court to win the right to sell booze.”
The report said, “Abo’s Pizza may follow the example set by neighboring Thunderbird Burgers, whose owner won a lawsuit in January that allowed him to sell alcohol until 2 a.m. Abo’s has hired Richard Lopez, the lawyer who represented Thunderbird.”
The article said, “Boulder’s Planning Board agreed in 2004 to allow Thunderbird Burgers to stay open until 2 a.m. only if its owners agreed to stop selling alcohol by 11 p.m.”
