Peirce Pub will stay open later in trial run

Peirce Pub will serve food until 2 a.m. on the weekends of Feb. 3-4 and Feb. 10-11 as part of a trial run in response to student requests for the Pub to stay open later. Due to restrictions imposed by their liquor license, the Pub will still not serve drinks past 1 a.m.

“On those Friday/Saturdays we will serve food until 2 a.m. with the expectation that students will understand we are still doing a last call, and that drinks will need to be consumed or taken by our staff at 1 a.m.,” AVI Resident Director Christopher Wisbey wrote in an email to the Collegian. “If students are unwilling to give up their drinks at 1 a.m. per our liquor license then we will discontinue the 2 a.m. food service.”

Wisbey added that AVI applied for a 2 a.m. liquor license last semester. The application process takes four to five months, and must receive approval from the State of Ohio Liquor Control Board, according to Wisbey. He hopes AVI will have the license by the summer and will be able to serve drinks until 2 a.m. in the fall of 2017.
