Joe's Cafe -- a private club and concert space in the Skinker-Debaliviere neighborhood -- was cited by the Excise Division during a show Thursday night on the charge that it lacked the proper permits.
Located at 6014 Kingsbury Avenue, the venue sits right next to an art gallery, both run by the well-respected local artist Bill Christman, who's known (among other things) for his collaboration with the late Bob Casilly and for creating the City Museum's Museum of Mirth, Mystery and Mayhem.
According to a copy of the citation obtained by Daily RFT, a liquor control officer came in at 10:20 pm and cited Christman for permitting consumption of liquor without a license.
