Looks like Red Square is in trouble
Today, In a couple weeks, Red Square, the Russian-themed restaurant and bar in the Belvedere Hotel, will come before the liquor board to discuss all kinds of violations.
UPDATE: The hearing has been pushed back two weeks to Oct. 29 (coincidentally, the date of the Midnight Sun Social).
First (and perhaps most importantly), it looks like Red Square has run afoul of the community association. That's never a good thing -- especially since this is license renewal time.
Then there's the charge that Red Square served alcohol past 2 a.m. And to top off the list, Red Square has some unpaid taxes.
To get the real Russian experience, I made it a point to try a shot of garlic and black pepper vodka. It was one of the worst things I've ever tasted.
You know those puddles of oily water on the side of the road? It tasted like I'd slurped one of those. I still gag when I think about it.
But I did like trying the Baltika beer. Good stuff all around, as I remember it.
I'll let you know what comes of the hearing. But it doesn't look too good for Red Square.
