On the agenda: a lot actually

This morning’s City Council meeting is going to be interesting. Two new establishments that we’ve recently written about, Bonedaddy’s (soon to be Sweet Bones Alabama) and Black Market Bar, are on the consent agenda currently for receipt of their restaurant retail liquor licenses. For those that haven’t figured out where The Black Market will be, the address is 3411 Colonnade Parkway, Suite 800.

Several city agencies that have contracts with the city including Urban Impact, Main Street Birmingham and the BIrmingham Business Resource Center are poised to have them renewed. The biggest news that will come out of this morning’s meeting will probably not be what’s on the agenda, but what is not. Mayor Langford is prepared to ask the council to support a proposal for electronic bingo – an item that is currently legal in 6 of the counties in the state. In addition, he is asking the council via an addendum item to support a grant application to implement a Civil Rights Trail in the city.

We’ll see what happens.

I wouldn't be so sure, Uncle Mac will benefit from this for sure. Let me see I think the conversation might have been like this: "Hey LaLa, I contributed (paid) for your Fifedom so now I need those "little" favors I told you about, the LaLa Dome out here next to my Track and I want all my gaming machines back. You know you OWE me but make sure it looks like it is all in the City's interest and well being as you have done all along. Especially like the streetcars to no-where, the equestrian center, and oh, the Olympics which is the best one yet. Now get hopping and make this happen!" Wouldn't want to upset Uncle Miltie now would you!

Just what Birmingham needs "electronic Bingo". I know i sure enjoyed it a few years ago when the slot parlors were all over the place. that was great. I'm sure MacGregor isn't behind this at all.
