CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
The GOP is coming to Cleveland and when they do, they will have extra hours to throw a few back.
A half dozen counties are allowing certain establishments to serve spirits until 4:00 a.m.
Michael Grasso manages The Corner Alley, a bar and bowling alley combo in downtown and University Circle. He likes the expanded hours.
“It was actually very simple as far as fill out the forms, send in the information. The state was very great about it,” Michael Grasso adds.
Grasso is thrilled to have the major event waiver permit. It allows holders to extend service time for alcoholic beverages until 4:00 a.m., instead of 2:30.
“We applied about a month-and-a-half ago when it first came out. Really the decision was, people getting put of events, getting out of the late night sessions or whatnot it’s good to have a place to unwind, grab a drink,” Michael Grasso.
Some of the bars and restaurants along East 4th Street will be hopping with activity when the RNC is in town. Now, some will be doing private parties and won’t necessarily be affected by this. But the other all over the city, they’re all in.
