Council Approves De Colores Liquor License Transfer To Pajarito Brewpub & Grill

Co-owner Patrick Mockler Wood of the Pajarito Brewpub & Grill answers questions from councilors at tonight’s County Council meeting in Council Chambers on his request to lease a liquor license for his restaurant. He told Council the Brewpub is leasing a license now that will return to the owner and he is requesting to lease the license from former De Colores Restaurant owners, who retired and closed their restaurant last year. License owners Mel and Joan Duran own the license and have agreed to lease it to Mockler Wood and his partners. County Administrator Harry Burgess told Council that notice of this action has been published publicly as is required by law. Council voted 7-0 to grant the transfer of the license from De Colores to the Pajarito Brewpub & Grill at 614 Trinity Dr. Photo by Carol A. Clark/
