Yucatan and Service Bar dropped their suit over Lower Greenville SUP ordinance ... then closed their doors

I spent way too much time last year documenting the fight between Yucatan and Service Bar and the city of Dallas over the ordinance requiring all Lower Greenville businesses to get specific use permits if they want to keep their doors open past midnight. The ordinance, OK'd by the city council in January 2011, is intended to rid the stretch of recently redone street of the so-called "bad actors," as Angela Hunt and Pauline Medrano often called them.

And when the council denied Yucatan and Service Bar their SUPs in September, Medrano said, "If we're going to decrease crime, we need to make sure these type of establishments are not in business."
