A SOUTH JERSEY bar's alcohol license has been suspended after the business hired a 17-year-old girl to strip for customers and served her alcohol, authorities said. The Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control said the license for Park Place Bar and Grill in National Park, Gloucester County, will be suspended for 50 days for the February 2011 incident. When Alcoholic Beverage Control investigators visited the bar, they found the girl being served Long Island Iced Tea, Bay Breeze cocktails and other mixed drinks.

FOR A KID who grew up in a public-housing project, Jack Keenan did quite well for himself. Along with his two sons, he wound up owning one of the biggest and most popular bars in North Wildwood, N.J., where he served as the host with the most for a dozen years. But if you were to ask him what gave him his greatest pride, he no doubt would have told you his sons and his two grandchildren. "He had such pride in his kids," said one of his sons, Scott Keenan. "He would talk about us so much, it got embarrassing.

This holiday season, suspected drunken drivers stopped by police in New Jersey will be asked a question they never have faced: Where did you have your last drink? Officials consider the tactic a valuable tool in collecting information on problem bars that serve customers who have gone beyond the limit. Still, many bar owners don't like the idea of collecting admittedly unscientific information from the intoxicated. "The law is good, but only if the information they get is true and factual," said Frank Cavallaro, who manages his son's bar, Shady Katie's, in Somerdale.

Borough Council last night agreed to renew the liquor license for Tony's Place, the town's only go-go bar, on the condition that the owner resolve state Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) charges against him. This can be done through a hearing or by reaching an agreement with the state. A date for an ABC hearing has not been set, said Tony Volpe, owner of the bar located at Main Street and Billingsport Road. Neither Volpe nor his attorney would comment on last night's decision.

More than 20,000 cases of untaxed alcohol were seized yesterday at a Cherry Hill wholesaler's warehouse during an early-morning raid by the Division of Criminal Justice, authorities said. State agents raided the JWTA Inc. warehouse on Route 70 East at 4 a.m. and hauled away 290 pallets of booze. Each pallet contained 70 cases of hard liquor, sake, fruit wine or beer, said John Hagerty, a spokesman for the Criminal Justice Division. The company's majority stockholder, Kye C. Maeng, 51, of Cherry Hill, and another man tentatively identified as Toyanhee Cho were arrested and charged with possession, sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages without a license.

The Crystal Palace, a tavern that became notorious to Mount Holly officials and residents as a place that generated noise, violence and crime, will cease operations July 21, according to a settlement between its owner and the Township Council. The agreement was reached just before an administrative law hearing that was scheduled for June 20, according to Stacy L. Moore Jr., township solicitor. Administrative Law Judge Roger Persichilli was scheduled to hear the matter to determine whether the township's revocation of the tavern's liquor license in August 1990 could be upheld.

Bambi, Jasmine and Alexis are safe where they stand in their spiked heels. The Maple Shade Council held off last night a decision to revoke the liquor license of Moon Dancers, a go-go bar on Route 73 that has been cited for lewdness by the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Local officials will instead wait for the outcome of a hearing by the Office of Administrative Law, which they hope achieves the same result. No date has been set for the hearing. Investigators from the state Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control charge that on three separate occasions in the last two years, dancers at the bar engaged in acts with customers "having a lewd, indecent or immorally suggestive import and meaning.

State officials rounded up 50 Gloucester County liquor dealers yesterday and told them it would be worth their licenses to watch out for underage drinkers. John F. Vassallo Jr., director of the state Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, said state officials were initiating a crackdown on underage drinking this fall to protect students at Glassboro State College. Vassallo brought up the case of a Rutgers student who died last year after drinking heavily at a fraternity party.

In a move that one local official said was "a day late and a dollar short," the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control has moved to revoke a Washington Township liquor license once owned by an aide to Mayor Paul Moriarty. The division filed notice of its action Friday, according to documents it made public yesterday. In October, however, the Washington Township Council, citing many of the issues raised by the state, voted to rescind the transfer that put the license in the hands of former mayoral aide Salvatore Chillemi and his business partner, Walter McBride.

A flesh fight between a go-go bar and Gloucester City has landed in federal court, where a judge decided dancers at Cheerleaders may continue to strut, shimmy and shake. The bar sued the city last week alleging that zoning authorities improperly decided the nearly naked dancers no longer were allowed because the restaurant had lost its grandfather protection to operate when its liquor license was revoked. This month, the city was poised to close the bar, Cheerleaders, off Route 130 North, when the lawsuit was filed.

Would you like a bottle of chardonnay to go with that roast chicken in your grocery cart? How about a pinot noir for your salmon? New Jersey lawmakers are considering proposals to allow wider sales of liquor in supermarkets, permitting chains such as Acme and Wegmans unfettered access to liquor licenses. The legislative debate in Trenton pits consumer convenience against underage-drinking enforcement, and liquor-store owners against grocery operators. The Assembly bill (A. 2892)

Drunken drivers aren't the only ones being targeted this year in New Jersey's traditional late-summer highway crackdown. Police throughout the state will be asking DUI offenders where they were drinking. If the answer is a bar or a restaurant with a liquor license, those establishments could be punished. Law-enforcement officials say the information will be put into a database that will help them track bars or restaurants that frequently serve alcohol to drunks. It is against state law for any establishment with a liquor license to serve or sell alcohol to an intoxicated person, and penalties range from temporary suspension of a license to revocation.

Following a raucous two-hour closed-door discussion, Washington Township's council has voted to rescind a controversial liquor license to the former aide to Mayor Paul Moriarty. Just before midnight Thursday, the five-member panel unanimously decided that a license transfer to aide Salvatore Chillemi and his partner had been based on incorrect and misleading information about the price and funding of the $400,000 license. "Basically what they did was provide us with false information," Councilman Stephen Altamuro said after the panel emerged from the closed-door session.

A last-minute, $100,000 change in the price of a Washington Township liquor license sold to a former aide to Mayor Paul Moriarty could not have been a "clerical error," as the aide has contended, according to recently released documents. The change altered the price of the license from $300,000 to $400,000 without the knowledge of the Police Department or the Township Council, which approved the license transfer in March. Council, which meets tonight, is considering its response.
