The Slow Drip of TABC's Beer and Wine Permits

Last week the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission sent over that press release listing the two new retailers given permits to sell beer and wine in previously dry parts of Dallas. This morning, after seeing this Channel 5 story about how the newly wet are missing out on year-end champagne sales, I went back to the TABC's website to see who'd been added since last we looked.

Every store between the '230 and the '208 is awaiting its application okee-doke. But, turns out, in the past week just two restaurants (a Bone Daddy's on Spring Valley and a Red Lobster on Vantage Point Drive) have been added to the list since December 22, and there's just one new retailer named: Mohammod Hossaen's West Davis Food Mart (at 619 W. Davis Street, across from Bolsa), which got its permit two days before Christmas. Turns out, Rob Shearer of Go Oak Cliff already knew this.
