Maintaining a business in Brooklyn is such a hassle, what with the abiding by the laws and the liquor licenses and the drunk people peeing on your doorstep. At least one of those three things became a problem for Williamsburg dive bar The Levee this spring, when their liquor license expired and rumors circulated that they were closing their doors for good. But it turns out your mother was right, and you shouldn’t believe everything you hear, because after a month of repairs and improvements, The Levee is back in action tonight.
Apparently it was all just a big misunderstanding, and The Levee’s license renewal never made it to the New York State Liquor Authority, which is probably the most bureaucratic thing that’s ever stopped you from getting drunk on the cheap.
Luckily for us, The Levee’s owners figured out the problem relatively quickly and sent for their license again, which became effective two days ago. It’s true what they say about the post: neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep liquor licenses from being delivered. And cheers to that.
