Two Westminster women are converting Os & Ginny's, a bar and crab carryout restaurant at 452 E. Main St. in Westminster, into a restaurant and sports bar.
The Turn Around Sports Pub will be open from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m.
every day and will serve three meals a day, said owners Rheta Cullison and Lynda Abbott.
The business should open around Dec. 15, Cullison said. Extensive renovations are being done now, she said.
Norman Hoy, the previous owner of Os & Ginny's, closed the business Nov. 3 and turned in his liquor license Tuesday, said J. Ronald Lau, liquor board administrator.
Hoy's license had been downgraded last April because he didn't meet the food sales required by liquor laws. Hoy had appealed the decision, but withdrew his appeal, Lau said. County law requires food sales be 41 percent of gross sales.
Cullison said the sports pub will have a dress code after 8 p.m., televisions to watch sporting events, electronic sports games and live music. Doormen and management will patrol the parking lot to discourage problems, Cullison said.
The restaurant will serve steamed crabs, other seafood, submarine sandwiches, pizza, pit beef and baby-back ribs, Abbott said.
Cullison said they eventually want to keep the restaurant open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays in order to serve breakfast after the bar closes at 1 a.m.
Cullison and Abbott testified about the business before the county liquor board Tuesday. The board will decide within 30 days whether they should be given a liquor license.
In another decision, the board pulled the liquor license at Spittel's Crab House on Liberty Road in Eldersburg after the restaurant had been closed for more than 10 consecutive days without board approval as the law requires.
