Scandals Could Begin Serving Alcohol As Early As Today


A Springfield bar and restaurant could begin serving alcohol as early as today... after finally being granted a liquor license following several weeks of delays.

 

The license for Scandals and the adjacent Mama's Kitchen restaurant on South 11th became a flashpoint on the City Council, with Ward 2 Alderman Gail Simpson demanding that other aldermen defer to her wish to block another liquor establishment from opening in her ward.

 

But even after aldermen overruled her, Mayor Mike Houston held up the license until the owners agreed not to seek a 3am liquor license.

 

A Scandals spokesman says that provision now only applies through the end of Houston's term, and that compromise allowed the license to go forward.
