According to the minutes of the Monday, April 1 meeting of the Church Hill Central Civic Association, Captain Buzzy’s (“Church Hill’s original coffee house“) is seeking permission to be open longer hours and to be able to sell alcohol:
The city asked for our input on Captain Buzzy’s special use permit to extend their hours Mon-Thurs until 10 pm and sell alcohol. Since they’re outside our general area (Church Hill Central/North, plus the Chimborazo park area), we voted to respond with “No comment”
Captain Buzzy’s is already currently open until 9PM.
A lot has changed in the neighborhood since Buzzy’s opened in late 2004. The reality of the corner stores that dotted Broad Street have faded and been replaced by best-in-the-city bakeries and restaurants. Is there any reason Buzzy’s should not be allowed to change with the times?
