The tap has run dry for some area restaurants, as a number of Grand Forks restaurants recently appeared on a state list of restaurants that have not paid their taxes. Until these businesses pay their taxes, they will not be able to sell alcohol.
The latest additions on the list added in May are:
- Simon’s — Grand Falls
- The Turkish Lounge — Grand Falls
- The Coast Guard — Blue Lake
- Jim’s Fine Steaks & More — New Caanan
Simon’s and the Turkish Lounge join three other Grand Falls restaurants that were added to the list in January:
- The Oldtime Lanes
- Spa’s Family Restaurant
- Mama’s Grill
These businesses can still sell the alcohol they have, but any distributer selling new booze to them can be penalized.
