Maine Restaurant Shut Down During Benefit for Small Businesses
The event featuring headlining band 'American Ride' was a fundraiser to help financially support neighboring businesses inside the Sebago Plaza. A spokesman for the restaurant indicated that they were not selling alcohol, told attendees no alcohol was allowed on premises and ordered people to remain in their cars or beds of their pickups.
The restaurant also went on to say that they believe they did nothing wrong as even the bands were distanced performing across the parking lot outside on flatbeds. The restaurant offered food to order, and the food was brought out to customers in their vehicles.
The Maine Bureau of Liquor Enforcement disagrees with the establishment's assessment that they didn't do anything wrong and is now threatening to revoke their liquor license all together. According to WMTW, both sides are meeting today to further talk about the alleged issues.
According to the business's Facebook page they will be open for takeout today.
Below is a live video posted by the restaurant during the benefit yesterday.
