Pirates Alley Café THANKS Ye!

 AVAST YE SCALLAWAGS, WE DID IT! The appeal for Pirates Alley Café was heard early, thanks to all yer support – and, they are now officially a LEGAL BAR! 

 

PIRATES ALLEY CAFÉ WILL REMAIN OPEN – Thanks to our friends and customers, media attention and an outpouring of community support, the Dept. of Permits and Safety has reviewed our petition for a Bar License. After further investigation and consideration of new evidence, we have been approved and will continue to operate in the same manner which we always have. The BZA meeting scheduled for June 13th will not take place so please do not go to City Hall on that date. Once again we would like to thank all those who took the time to write in and give their support! Tony Seville & Thais Solano Thais Solano & Tony Seville, Proprietors

 

QM Seika Hellbound, Admiral Bird & CaptainOur favourite gathering spot is in danger! Since 1998, Pirates Alley Café & Olde Absinthe House has been operating under it’s original Restaurant License (requiring a certain percentage o’ food sales to alcohol sales). Now, if ye’ve seen the size o’ the place (all 398 sq. ft.), there’s nothing that says “restaurant”; it has clearly been operating more as a BAR for these years – with our good mates Thais Solano & Tony Seville at the helm for the last dozen. They have been speaking to the City for years regarding the impossibility o’ supplying food in the manner required by the current license and have been struggling for the logical step – to have the license changed to a “Legal Non-Conforming Bar”. Seems the powers that be are a bit confused in this matter and are arguing that millions o’ dollars in alcohol sales do not a bar make…to which we respond, Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

Support the logical choice, support the Bar and most importantly, support our mates!

Pirates Alley Café THANKS Ye! — 5 Comments

  1. Congratulations and felicitacions from the Syndicks of Barataria/los Sindicos de Barataria ( Cartagena de Indies/Ciudad Mexico/ la Nouvelle Orleans/ Caminada/Campeche de Yucatan`)–as a descendant of the Rigaud landside agents and constables and prize-launderers of the Laffite/Beluche/You cartel and as a representative of the Syndicks I rejoice at your happy seizure of such a grand prize–and although I am not familiar with the café and bar as she now rides I intend to make myself a visitor and maybe include the spot on foot voyages on boozy breezes as soon as my lawyers can lift the outstanding warrants for my arrest in la Nouvelle Orleans and the Isle d’Orleans. Even though good alluring bars are as dangerous to my mortal life as Patterson’s warships were to the prosperity of all who nobly flew the flag of la Republica de Cartagena de Indies….

  2. What a delight. My letter may have been a little too full of history and outrage, but it must have helped out some 🙂 I could not be happier for Thais, Tony and all of us who get to continue to enjoy a wonderful, historical landmark. Huzzah!!!
