Cinelli's Country House Restaurant, the famous Cherry Hill establishment that collapsed into bankruptcy three years ago, is expected to succumb to the bulldozer by the end of the summer. Rouse & Associates, the development firm that bought the property in December for $2.4 million, has received a demolition permit from the township and plans to raze the building by late August or early September, according to Rouse regional partner Robert Heimerl. Rouse plans to build a $20 million 12- to 15-story office building on the site, at Route 38 and Haddonfield Road.

When Betty Ann Garnett was young, she and her friends were not allowed in the local YMCA, so the Star Social Club was one of their community hangouts. Her father, who was a member, would sit her in a booth and buy her a soda and potato chips. As a young woman, Garnett danced to the jazz of famous and local musicians at the West Chester club. Over the decades, its lineup was impressive: Count Basie. Fats Waller. Duke Ellington. B.B. King. "It was a jumpin' place, the Star," Garnett, 84, said.

If it had just been the drug sales in his bar, in which his own workers face charges, Dennis Vaughn might have had a better chance of avoiding a suspension of his liquor license. But when the police charged that a bartender, a waitress and a regular customer were stashing cocaine and methamphetamine in the walk-in refrigerator of the Pennsauken Beef & Beer, that just about finished things off. After a three-month investigation and a Nov. 10 police raid on the bar at the Pennsauken Mart, the Township Committee voted last week to suspend the liquor license at the Beef & Beer for 12 months.

Washington Township Councilman Daniel Mangini put it this way: "There are a lot of dollars at stake in this one. " A million dollars, according to testimony offered Wednesday by Thomas Hedenberg, a builder and restaurant owner who was conditionally granted and then denied a liquor-license renewal by the Township Council. Hedenberg appealed that denial to the state's Alcohol Beverage Commission (ABC) last month and an administrative law judge heard six hours of testimony Wednesday from Hedenberg and council members.

The Voorhees Township Committee last night renewed the liquor license for the Coliseum - the bar where Flyers star goalie Pelle Lindbergh drank before his fatal car crash - despite recent charges by the state that the bar employed a person with a criminal record and failed to disclose the true ownership of the bar. Township solicitor Frank Thatcher said the committee lacked "sufficient, independent evidence" not to renew the license even though...

A good bottle of wine can cost $20. Fine champagne will run $70. Trendy imported beers such as Corona or Dock Street go for $5 a six-pack. In Voorhees Township, the price for the privilege to hawk those wares is $310,000 - but there are no takers. In three bidding periods, the most recent of which expired Monday at the Township Committee meeting, the township did not receive any complete bids for the Class D liquor license. Now, township officials say they will not re-bid the license until next year at the earliest.

A liquor license likely will be the final piece that completes the largest shopping center in Washington Township. On April 26, the township will open bids for two liquor licenses. One of the licenses likely will be bought by the Brunswick Corp. of Chicago for its proposed 40-lane bowling center, which will be built next to the Cross Keys Commons shopping center in the eastern part of the township. The other license probably will be bought by a local liquor store. The bowling center is the second major recreational tenant for the shopping center, already under construction on the Black Horse Pike.

John Stavros, president of Evesham's venerable Olga's Diner, is one of many township business owners who have complained about the way township officials have dealt with distributing the available liquor licenses. Now, Stavros has moved past the complaining stage. Stavros, whose diner has been a staple at the Marlton Circle for 30 years, has told township officials he will no longer sponsor local groups, such as wrestling clubs, schools and churches. "We deeply regret that we must decline these requests (for sponsorships or baked goods)

The Township Council last night decided to postpone a vote on whether to approve the transfer of a retail liquor license from the owners of the Medford Village Resort & Country Club to the club's general manager.

Officials said they expected to have the report in time to possibly make a decision on the transfer at the council's March 20 meeting.

HOW'S THIS for a head-scratcher: Apparently, out-of-state politicians and activists can be trusted to drink responsibly, but your average Philadelphian can't. For years, our state has endured some of the nation's most needlessly restrictive alcohol regulations, yet well-connected visitors to the Democratic National Convention next week will get special exceptions. State legislators in Harrisburg have implemented temporary "national event permits" for the duration of the convention, allowing select Philadelphia venues to sell alcohol later than 2 a.m., provide happy hour specials, and purchase their stock outside of state stores.

The Bellmawr Borough Council voted Thursday to renew the liquor license of Johnnies Liquors, the West Browning Road store implicated, along with a coin laundry across the street, in a May 26 drug bust that targeted two trafficking networks. "So we don't end up in a lawsuit costing us thousands of dollars, reluctantly, yes," Councilman James D'Angelo said when asked for his vote. The decision disappointed the protesters who have sought for weeks to shut down the businesses. The small group of residents has regularly stood outside the store and sometimes the laundry in an effort to deter patrons.

You may have seen the news story that one of the major big-box stores has applied for a liquor license, which would allow consumption on premises. In other words, you could drink while you shop. Yay! Happy days are here again! Reportedly, the store is doing this because it's expanding its grocery and food items, but I don't care why. Bottoms up! I already love shopping in big-box stores. Why? Everything is BIG! If you need to buy laundry detergent, the smallest bottle is 187 ounces.

A town center project slated for Harrison Township's Richwood section was for years the buzz about town. The walkable hub boasting major retailers and new homes - even a new elementary school and town hall were floated - would create a destination in the town known for its bucolic setting and charming, historic Mullica Hill. Lately, it's a lack of buzz that's got some talking. The same year ambitious details about the massive 370-acre Richwood project were announced, in 2008, residents in the Gloucester County town voted to allow liquor licenses for full-service restaurants and bars - ending Harrison's longtime status as a dry town.

LANSDOWNE The effort to restore and reopen the Lansdowne Theater got a boost last Tuesday when residents voted overwhelmingly to grant liquor licenses to performing arts facilities in Lansdowne. The liquor license would apply only to the theater. The vote, according to an unofficial tally on the Delaware County website, was 1,254 to 214. A nonprofit group bought the 1920s-era theater in 2007 and has been raising money toward its reopening in a few years. Supporters and Lansdowne officials say a reopened theater, especially one that can serve alcohol before, during, and after events, could attract visitors and economic development to the community of 10,000.
