3 more businesses face alcohol license suspensions after defying COVID-19 restrictions


The Alcohol and Gambling Law Enforcement Division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety has informed three restaurants that they could have their liquor licenses suspended for 60 days after violating restrictions on the ‘COVID-19 Status on Indoor Meals.
Cornerstone Cafe, in Monticello; The Interchange, in Albert Lea; and The Pour House, in Clarks Grove, all face liquor license suspensions pending a hearing before an administrative judge, the DPS said in a statement on Saturday. Establishments have all been observed serving alcohol to patrons for indoor consumption on site, going against Governor Tim Walz’s executive order banning indoor dining.
