Early liquor sales allowed for motorcycle event

Elburn Lions Club and Knuckleheads Tavern will sell liquor on Sunday morning, June 7, the day of the Elburn Motorcycle Run.

An Elburn ordinance prohibits liquor sales before noon on Sunday. However, the Village Board unanimously agreed Monday to allow the bar to sell alcohol and the Lions Club a temporary exemption because the event benefits charities.

The Lions hold a public party at Lions Park in conjunction with the motorcycle ride, and Knuckleheads opens early. The Lions will start selling alcohol at 11 a.m. the day of the event, and Knucklheads will start at 10 a.m.

    What a great idea!! With the rash of motorcycle accidents and drunk driving episodes, let’s open the bars early so the riders can drink even more that day. Wow it takes a lot of wisdom by the village board and the Lions Club to come of with winner. I hope the Elburn police are out early and pick these people up. But I doubt it. Wouldn’t want to upset the new administration.
