According to the Washington State Liquor Control Board, Lower Queen Anne’s own Peso’s Kitchen & Lounge is the biggest restaurant/bar buyer of booze in the entire state!
Former Seattle PI columnist and Queen Anne bar owner Mike Lewis (who became one of the owners of the Streamline on Mercer St. last fall) broke the story on the Seattle Weekly’s Voracious blog today, Wednesday, April 28. From the story:
Peso’s spent more on liquor over the past 12 months than any other bar in the state, more than restaurants twice its size, more than hotels, more any other booze-slinging establishment except two large casinos, according to the Washington State Liquor Control Board.
A top ten list of purchasers release by the WSLCB revealed that Peso’s trailed behind only two establishments–the Snoqualmie Casino and Northern Quest Resort and Casino in Spokane. But just because it spent more, doesn’t meant it sold more alcohol–it all comes down to what you buy. Read Mike’s full story at the Seattle Weekly.
