NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The License Commission approved several one-day licenses for events and continued a license transfer on Tuesday.
Two events to be held on July 25 and Aug. 29 as part of DownStreet Art events were approved for one-day licenses. The approvals were held over from applications at the June 18 meeting because Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts lacked the necessary liability insurance.
Peter Oleskiewicz of Desperados offered to host the alcohol portion under his license. The events will be held at 17 Eagle St. and the Eagle Street Parklet.
Also approved was a one-day beer and wine license application by Belltower Records for its Summer Jam II event on Aug. 10.
The event will feature nearly a dozen bands and a deejay in the reception hall at the Norad Mill. Owner Wesley Nelson said the concerts will begin at noon and asked for a permit to sell alcohol from noon to 8.
Wandering Star Brewery of Pittsfield will be handling the alcohol and is TIPs (Training for Intervention Procedures) certified, he said.
The cover charge is $12.
The commission continued until July 30 a public hearing on the transfer of The Hub's all-alcohol license to the new Capitol Restaurant in the same location to give the new owners time to complete one of two required criminal background checks.
Until then, the license remains under the name of the past manager, who is currently an employee of record of the Capitol.
