Legislation may help bars and restaurants obtain temporary liquor licenses

WICHITA — Rowdy Beaver still doesn't have its liquor license, and at least two other Wichita businesses have temporarily lost theirs because they didn't renew in time.

Maggie's Scotch & Soda and Soggy Bottom are closed until their licenses are renewed.

"It really kind of stinks because it's going to put me under," says Soggy Bottom owner Teresa Tribelhorn.

"If I'm not open this weekend, I'm probably locking the doors," she says of her bar at 779 N. West St.

It may not be in time to help Tribelhorn, but there could be legislation coming that would help bar and restaurant owners who don't renew in time.
