Proposed state legislation that would make it possible to buy a bottle of wine to go after a meal at a restaurant, tavern or hotel will be debated in Philadelphia on Wednesday.
The House Liquor Control Committee will hold a public hearing on House bill 2612, which would allow patrons of the establishments to purchase up to two bottles of wine to take with them after a meal. The establishments would also be allowed to expand the use of their license for catering purposes.
The hearing, which begins at 9:30 a.m. and is expected to last about 90 minutes, will be held at the Independence Visitor Center, One North Independence Mall West, at 6th and Market streets.
Speakers will include:
• Joe Conti, CEO, Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.
• Major John Lutz, director, Pennsylvania Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement.
• Ron Raymond, governmental affairs manager, Crisci Associates, Pennsylvania Tavern Association.
• Patrick Conway, president and CEO, Pennsylvania Restaurant Association.
• Ray Hottenstein, owner, Olde Greenfield Inn, Lancaster, chair, PRA Alcohol Service Committee.
