So as it turns out–though not reported anywhere else–Liquid Room, in downtown Wilmington, did not actually serve any alcohol to the young lady who died from DUI on January 4th. Video evidence may prove this. So after all the hoopla reported (even by this magazine), the bar may get its permit to operate again. After months of lost revenue and bad publicity, the bar may be able to be the hotspot it once was. The rush to judgement is a troubling sign for other bars who may fall under the wrath of the beefed up ALE and ABC, the two branches of state government that are charged with fairly distributing judgement in the matter of alcohol beverage licenses.
In order to save face, ALE and ABC are still insinuating that Liquid Room contributed to the death of Marjorie Jean Whitney.
