“When [the owner’s] The continued operation of the club has generated an escalation of inspections, he resorted to bragging about being a member of an organized crime organization as a bullying tactic. The only reason he is claiming this status is to exercise undue influence over City staff. It also had nothing to do with their interaction. The implicit message to staff is that they may be harmed because of their dissatisfaction with their regulatory actions. This tactic is serious and unacceptable, especially for a licensed cabaret holder, where character and reputation are a licensing factor, ”wrote Federico Alvarez, a former Denver District Court judge who served as ‘hearing officer for an excise alcohol license and licensing show. cause case.

The owner of the club is only guilty of Italian appropriation. What a decision by DB to be called Corleons.
Let him spend his day in court, then respond to the verdict. I find the hatred of him strange from afar.
Try closely. Try to work in front of this shitty show.
If you liked the beta and what it was at one point, that’s easy to understand.

Beta is the coolest place in Denver!

Rolling stone say it.
Well that’s what Colorado is attracting to now. Garbage related events, garbage places and an insane amount of garbage collectors.
If Corleons does not file an objection, or if he files one and it is not accepted, the Executive Director of the Department of Excise and Licensing will make a final decision on the fate of the liquor license. of Beta, probably during the month of January.
