Lake Worth elected’s working together is impossible? Not true at all—“How would you like your New Year’s Day morning mimosa?”

[Recommendation by a reader: “The mimosa’s at C.W.S. Bar + Kitchen are out of this world!” They open at 11:00 this morning. Located at 522 Lucerne Ave. in the Downtown; call 561-318-5637.]

Last New Year’s Day morning in Lake Worth, if you wanted to relax for a while and have a mimosa, you were free to do so—just not in Lake Worth. If anyone had an idea like, “I would really like to have a delicious mimosa to ring in the New Year”, they ended up driving outside the City passing a bevy of establishments that sold those adult beverages such as The Beach Club at the municipal golf course.

Because of an archaic law controlling alcohol sales, for all these years money that should of ended up in the hands of businesses right here in Lake Worth went to Palm Beach or West Palm Beach instead. 

In a display of comradery earlier this year the elected’s came together and showed they can work together to bridge the gap to help our business community. The Post beat reporter Kevin Thompson, always the one to put his special spin on City news*, quickly came out with this item:

Lake Worth commissioners Ryan Maier (second from right) and Chris McVoy, PhD(far, far right) beam with delight along with Commissioner Andy Amoroso (left), Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell and Mayor Pam Triolo.

Yes. Now you are free, as an adult of legal alcohol drinking age, to enjoy a mimosa on New Year’s Day morning if you wish. The question is what took so long?

*Recall that unfair, inaccurate story about Lake Worth being just a “jumping off place”? Only “music and booze”?
True. Commissioner Chris McVoy does have a PhD and he reminds people all the time about that. It’s easy to forget. Remember the “inglorious demise of Consent Agenda item 9C”?
