McBaron’s Liquor License
The Toledo City Council came close to approving a liquor license for Toledo’s newest watering hole/family restaurant blend. But the council balked at the last second upon hearing that there may be something irregular on their application.
The applicant for McBaron’s Tavern, who wants to set up shop in the old Golden Dragon restaurant building just west of the downtown on Business 20, was hoping for a quick approval and begin making changes inside the building for a full bar and full restaurant setting. Very family friendly, was the term that was used.
However, a glitch was found on the application for the liquor license and Police Chief David Enyeart said he wants look into it. He said he’s familiar with it and predicted it shouldn’t take long to straighten it out – certainly less than two weeks.
A representative for Jeff Davis said that they want the renovated facility to be very family oriented – complete with a full restaurant kitchen. She stressed, however, that they need to proceed quickly for financial reasons. The council voted to recommend approval of the liquor license to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission contingent upon additional approval by Chief Enyeart.
Halloween on Main Street
The council also gave their blessing to a request by downtown Toledo merchants to close down Main Street for a short time Halloween evening. The merchants will be conducting a big Main Street Halloween Trick-or Treat Celebration which will require that Main Street be shut down to all vehicular traffic for two hours, 4-6pm Halloween night. Participating merchants will have their store fronts all decorated in a Halloween motif and will offer abundant quantities of candy for little ghosts and goblins that stop by on their flying brooms, death coaches and ghost ponies.

One correction – The Coast Guard in Newport will not be conducting their haunted house on Halloween. Instead, candy will be dispensed from the bay side entrance to the Coast Guard Headquarters building. And they request that moms and dads might perhaps bring with them a non-perishable food item since the Coast Guard is in the middle of their annual “food-raiser operation” for Lincoln County Food Share.
