After defying county and state orders requiring restaurants to shut down all outdoor dining, Cronies Sports Grill in Agoura Hills has lost their health permit. Owner Dave Foldes has appealed the decision and is continuing to operate as usual with daily fines of $500, claiming that if he doesn’t stay open, he will have to permanently close his business so in essence he has nothing to lose. However, now the Department of Alcohol Beverage Control is doing their own investigation which might cause the restaurant’s liquor license to be revoked. To complicate matters a Superior Court Judge ruled in support of the California Restaurant Association on December 8 which objects to the outdoor dining shutdown claiming that there is insufficient evidence which clearly demonstrates the risks. What’s more, the City is threatening to shut off the restaurant’s utilities. Stay tuned for updates!
