City grants beer and wine license to Sydney's Frozen Custard

At the June 9 meeting of the Grand Marais City Council, a beer and wine license was granted to Bruce Block of Sydney’s Frozen Custard, allowing the beverages to be served outdoors (there is no indoor seating). While the city does not have any standards for allowing outdoor service, other licensed restaurants include Angry Trout, Birch Terrace and GunFlint Tavern. Block said he has had a lot of customer requests for beer, especially since he added pizza to the menu last year.
