Worcester County Board of License Commissioners briefs

Worcester County Board of License Commissioners briefs

(June 6, 2014)  The Board of License Commissioners discussed the following topics and took the following actions during the May 21 meeting.


The board granted the request for the services of a DJ, but just for one night per week from 8-11 p.m. at the West Ocean City establishment.

The request had been for a DJ two nights per week.

Hooter’s management may call the board’s administrator if the services of a DJ are desired for special events.


The board approved the request for the transfer of the seven-day beer and wine license from Robbins & Carter to L&M Martin.

The license is for the 7-Eleven convenience store at 139th Street and Coastal Highway. The store has been at that location for 37 years.

Burley Oak Brewery

The board granted the request of Burley Oak Brewery on Old Ocean City Boulevard in Berlin to expand the licensed premises into the parking lot of the east side for a special event Sept. 27.

Owner Bryan Brushmiller plans to have a beer station with approximately 12 beers from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Asian Grill

The board granted the request of Mark Cropper, on behalf of the owners of the Asian Grill at 11403 Coastal Highway, for a seven-day beer and wine license.

The Asian Grill is taking the place of the Yokazuna Restaurant in the Gold Coast Mall.

Fish Tales

Shawn Harmon, owner of Fish Tales at 21st Street bayside, agreed to cease providing corn hole games at 11:30 p.m. in response to complaints by two nearly residents.

The residents said loud noise from the corn hole participants was very disturbing.

Harmon said corn hole play I basically “horseshoes with sand bags.”

Castle in the Sand

The board reinstated the three-day license suspension of the Castle in the Sand.

The board had suspended the license last summer because of a sale to a minor and lack of cooperation with police, but owner Adam Showell appealed that suspension to Circuit Court. There, the judge affirmed the board’s decision and remanded the case back to the board.

The suspension will begin at 8 a.m. Aug. 24, exactly one year after the date the suspension had been ordered to start.
