Homewood Buys Two New Vehicles

Liquor License Approved for Chipotle
Despite some confusion among the board as to why Chipotle previously insisted on not needing a liquor license, the trustees unanimously voted to add and approve a Class 5 liquor license for the upcoming Chipotle restaurant on 17700 Halsted. Previously, Cilantro Cocina was the only Class 5 license holder.
A minor snag occured, however, when the representative from Chipotle realized there was no language in the agreement to allow for alcoholic beverages to be taken outside on the patio. The board still voted to allow the Class 5 license and advised Chipotle to come back with a request for outdoor alcohol permission.
Chipotle plans to sell beer and margaritas with the new license.
