Juanita's loses late-night bid 

The state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board has upheld the director's rejection of an application by Juanita's restaurant to hold a private club permit that would have allowed it to serve alcohol until 5 a.m. at its River Market location.

The ABC stopped issuing Class B licenses, which permit the private club sales, in 2001. According to the agency, only 27 Class B permits remain in Pulaski County, five of which are inactive. After 18 months, an inactive license becomes invalid.

Juanita's applied to use a permit held by the Arkansas Deaf Association since 1989. The arrangement between the restaurant and bar and association would have been a partnership, according to Juanita's GM James Snyder, who said on Tuesday that he had no comment on whether Juanita's planned to pursue the matter in court.
