Sioux Falls Councilor Neitzert, “Seems we got ourselves in a pickle.”

Strangely, some people like a pickle in the beer, just not at the movies. Seems they are going to have to do some splaining

The new move comes with some questions about the council’s most recent decision with West Mall 7 Theaters.

“That was a seven to zero decision to deny the alcohol license at the Western Mall. The concern for me and others really centered on having alcohol in the movie theater when you have children,” Sioux Falls City Councilman, Greg Neitzert said.

Uh, I think it is against the law to serve to minors, and I recall the West Mall 7 owners saying they would monitor the situation. While I am all for the council approving the Prairie Berry licenses, as I think they will, it would be fun if the WM7 owner showed up and asked them to explain the double standard. Probably one of the stupidest decisions I have ever seen the council make, wait . . .

Some of us are old enough to remember 1968 and the opening of the Western Mall. Back then, a great candy store, Hubbard’s Cupboard, was right next to a liquor store. So if it worked then, then it can work now…. Just think, wine for the elitist (“Oh, I didn’t even know this mall existed?”) and popcorn for the kids of the working poor….Everyone is happy……

Applebee’s is family friendly and they serve alcohol. I think regional residents prefer no alcohol and the council voted accordingly. Marijuana is legal in 10 states and allowed medicinally in 22 others. It will be legal on Mars before it’s ever legal in SD.
