As most of you know I am on the Town Board of Minocqua. Well last night we had one of the toughest decisions I have had to make. We had a liquor license to give out and 2 businesses that wanted it. One is The Vine – a wine and  beer lounge that was a wonderful addition to town 2 years ago. The other was a Mexican restaurant that would like to come to town in the vacant County Kitchen Building. The decision boiled down to helping an existing business or bring in a new one that will use local people to remodel the building and hire between 12-20 people and fill an empty building.  It was an unanimous decision for the Mexican Restaurant which will be a nice addition to town. And we will still have a great place with the Vine Lounge.  I hope everyone will enjoy them both this summer!!
