The BC Government announced that any business will be able to apply for a liquor primary licence so long that they don’t operate from a vehicle or target minors!
This red hot move is designed allow places like barber shops, salons, spas, art galleries, book stores…or heck, maybe even a laundromat to offer up some craft beer and cosmo.
The MLA responsible for partying, John Yap, said; “Customers will have more opportunities to enjoy some of the world class wines and craft beers that we know and love that are created right here in British Columbia.”
Personally, I love the move. Years ago I had the gig to deliver UBC’s Discorder Magazine to Seattle every month. Once of my stops was this Laundromat that was also a bar called Sit & Spin. And this was way before “hipster” made it into our daily lexicon. It was a pretty groovy place. I wonder if it’s still open? *NOPE* (sad emoticon)
There could be so many glorious applications. Vancouver craft beers served up at the record store? Hell yeah. Jeezus, I wanna apply for a license for the CFOX radio studio.
