Stop the outdoor beer garden at Ravenswood Pub
Say NO to 50-60 people in a beer garden at the Ravenswood Pub every night! The noise from the Pub has been worse, and the police hauled a few people away last Friday, 7/24, at 3 a.m. • Ravenswood Pub (Deuel-Zelm Enterprise) is applying for a liquor license for an outdoor patio at 5453 N. Ravenswood. A Liquor License allows the pub to sell liquor in the patio and remain open until 11 p.m. weeknights, Sunday thru Thursday, and until midnight Friday and Saturday. • The outdoor patio is on two lots, so could hold 50-60 people or more drinking in the beer garden. When there are events now, the sound carries like a block party. We will hear this every night, spring, summer and fall. • Ravenswood Pub is not a restaurant; it's a bar; patrons will drink in the patio. Bar-sponsored teams that come back to the bar after games on weeknights will hang out and drink in the patio. The website advertises National Tequila Day, Wall of Tequila (50 types served daily)and bigmouth rock paper scissors Thursday nights starting at 10 p.m. (ravenswoodpubchicago.com). • Property values will go down with a beer garden next door. Who wants to live next door to a beer garden Families won’t buy or move into the area. Parking will also be a problem. Beer gardens are within walking distance on Clark Street. Another in our neighborhood won’t be an amenity. Please help us stop the beer garden from being approved in our community. • Please voice your concerns by writing a brief note to the Mayor’s Liquor Control Commission now (by Aug. 10) stating that you do not want this outdoor patio in our neighborhood. Send your note to: Norma I. Reyes, Commissioner Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection Local Liquor Control Commission 121 N. LaSalle, Room 805 Chicago, IL 60602 RE: Outdoor Patio Liquor License for Deuel-Zelm Enterprise, 5453 N. Ravenswood • Please also take a moment to write your name and address on the petition below. (Please also write to the commissioner.. we need them to get as many letters against this patio as possible.) • Please, ask your neighbors to write a note to the Commission and to sign the petition. Thank you for your interest and concern.
