Mission Grill closed its doors to the public in early August but that hasn’t stopped the City of Philadelphia Department of Revenue from slapping a big old cease and desist order on the doors of the now vacant restaurant. Revenue department closures seem to be on the uptick. Philadelphia Weekly has the story behind Bob’s Happy Hour Tavern in Fishtown’s tax-related closure. The Daily News has also recently reported on the use of tax delinquency to get three West Philadelphia bars shuttered.
This all comes ahead of October 31st, when all the state’s liquor licenses come up for renewal. A renewal that requires all state taxes to be paid up and is often the straw that breaks the struggling bar’s back. Looks like proprietors now had better make sure the local taxes are paid in full as well.
Head to Kraftwork this evening for Yards Brewing Company’s Tap Handle Throwdown. The Fishtown bar will be pouring eight ales from Yards on handcrafted handles made as part of Yards collaboration with NextFab Studio. Everyone who shows up gets to vote on which one becomes the next official Yards tap handle.
