And now for some good news: The bar Heathers got a green light for its liquor license renewal at Monday night's Community Board 3 committee meeting!

When the bar came up on the agenda, the committee looked over the bar's complaint history, heard supportive remarks from two community members, acknowledged a letter of support cosigned by yours truly and Ben Cappel of the New York City Celiac Disease Meetup Group, and asked several choice questions of bar owner Heather Millstone.

Then came the announcement that the committee was willing to go ahead with the license renewal! After fretting over this situation for months, I was happy to see Heathers and the committee come to a resolution that would not interfere with the bar's flow of gluten-free cider and beer.

So it's time to celebrate--Lower East Side style! (Just remember: Keep the noise down and don't disturb the neighbors.)
