Flossmoor nixes license request for proposed restaurant with gambling plans

A split village board Monday rejected the latest proposal for a restaurant/bar in Flossmoor that would include video gambling machines.

Trustees were divided, with three voting in favor of a liquor license for Lucky Dog, a chain of restaurants, bars, convenience stores, coin-operated laundries and truck stops throughout the Midwest. Three other trustees were against the proposal and Mayor Paul Braun broke the deadlock by voting against the liquor license.

Illinois permits gambling machines in bars, fraternal organizations and truck stops that have liquor licenses. Flossmoor allows such gambling but for the last . . .
