Princeton Bar To Face 60 Day Liquor License Suspension

The Neighbors on the Rum River in Princeton is facing a potential 60 day suspension of its liquor license.


The establishment is being accused of violating an executive order from the state regarding selling alcohol for on-premises consumption to help fight Covid-19.


The Minnesota Department of Public Health stated that their Alcohol and Gambling Enforcement Division has documented evidence of the violations and has notified Neighbors.


Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison tweeted about the suspension and other locations that threaten to oppose the order.


" To those few businesses that are choosing to openly violate the executive order, I say this is the wrong way to go. I don’t enjoy using the enforcement tools I have, but I will use them to hold violators accountable and keep Minnesotans safe." tweeted Ellison


The suspension is pending a hearing before an administrative law judge. If any further violations were to occur, the penalty could increase to a 5 year suspension.
