Backwoods gets pouring license

A beer and wine pouring license for Tracy Wallace, who is working toward a spring opening for the Backwoods Grill, was approved by Milner city council at its March 18 meeting. The steak house will be downtown in the former location of Rudy’s Restaurant. Wallace, who already has his state pouring license, will get his local license as soon as background checks are completed. He must have a health department inspection before he can open. ”I’ve heard a lot of compliments concerning your thoughts on the restaurant and your work with the school,” said Mayor Joe Bostwick. Wallace’s restaurant supply company caters St. George’s Episcopal School. Wallace interviewed 41 prospective staff members the day before the meeting. He plans to open after their training is complete. He said all but two applicants are from Milner. ”There were 12 cars in the parking lot and people lined up waiting to go inside,” said city administrator Harold Wilson. The vote was 4-1 with councilman Fred Stephens opposed. Also opposing was citizen Arthur Buffington. ”I’ve done all I can to stand against this,” Buffington said of the pouring license. “That said, I’m looking forward to his restaurant.”
