Alcoholic Beverage Control considering private club permit for non-profit

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A non-profit organization that works with Arkansas State University is one step closer to serving alcohol to select patrons at its football games and the Convocation Center.

Last week in Little Rock, William J. Stanley, representing NEA Sports Club, 217 Olympic Dr., submitted to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division a new application for a Large Event Facility-Private Club permit.

In April, the ASU Board of Trustees unanimously approved an agreement with NEA Sports Club, a nonprofit organization, to allow the sale of alcohol on campus.

According to the agreement, alcoholic beverages would be sold in designated areas on campus at certain events, specifically at "Centennial Bank Stadium and Tomlinson Stadium in limited, designated club sections and other premium seating areas."

The agreement went on to include the service of alcohol at the Convocation Center "at special events such as concerts and banquets." But, alcohol would not be sold at A-State athletic events, including basketball games.

Other Region 8 businesses submitting new permit applications to the ABC included Michael F. Sullivan who applied for a Private Club-Class A permit for Sully's of Jonesboro, 303 South Main, Suite A.

Carol A. Wilmes applied for a Restaurant Beer & Wine-On Premises Only permit for Feisty B's Bar & Grill, located at 160 Greene 721 Rd. in Paragould.
