No beer today at Porter's Jazz Cafe

Posted By on Wed, Feb 8, 2012 at 12:15 PM

The state Alcoholic Beverage Control Division has picked up the alcoholic beverage permit of Porter's Jazz Cafe, which opened in September, because the cafe had never obtained a state sales tax permit, ABC Director Michael Langley confirms. The alcohol permit can be returned when the sales tax permit issue is resolved, an ABC spokesman said.

Add this to other woes reported here yesterday for the development, not to mention a report this morning in Democrat-Gazette over complaints from the neighboring Rose Law Firm about grease being spattered on their cars by a restaurant exhaust fan.

UPDATE: The Little Rock Bureau of Conventions and Visitors says Porter's is also delinquent on the restaurant tax. It paid $382 on $19,168 in sales in September and reported owing $349.56 on $14,945 in sales in October, but never paid it. It has filed no reports for November and December.
