Wine and beer is likely to be legalized during summer music shows on Lake Harriet.
The City Council regulatory committee voted on Monday to approve a wine and beer license at the Bread & Pickle, an eatery abutting the band shell on Lake Harriet. It is expected to receive approval from the full council on May 10, the Star Tribune said.
Some city officials say they want to limit liquor sales to just the back patio of Bread & Pickle, KSTPsaid.
Other people say that limiting the sales to the back patio isn't smart. It would make drinking beer or wine at the actual band shell, illegal, KSTP said.
The Linden Hills Neighborhood Council approved the license application, the Star Tribune said.
Two other park/lake eateries, Sea Salt at Minnehaha Falls and Tin Fish at Lake Calhoun, already serve alcohol.
Bread & Pickle owner, Kim Bartmann said it would likely take four to six weeks after approval before the eatery can start serving, the Star Tribune said.
