TABC temporarily suspends Little Woodrow's license for breaking COVID-19 protocol

Posted: Updated:

Little Woodrow's in west Lubbock is among 12 bars statewide whose alcohol licenses have been suspended for not following COVID-19 protocols.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission reports its Operation Safe Open is intended to make sure businesses it licenses are following the governor's order. This includes no allowing no more than 50 percent of capacity for bars indoors and no more than 75 percent of capacity indoors for restaurants, along with social distancing of at least six feet between groups of customers. This is according to a news release from the agency.

The TABC issued an emergency order for a 30-day permit suspension for:

Handlebar Houston, Houston
BARge 25, Seabrook
Harris House of Heroes, Dallas
The New PR's, Fort Worth
UnBARlievable (West 6th), Austin
Little Woodrow's, Lubbock
Coconuts, El Paso

Buford's Backyard Beer Garden, Austin
Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot Icehouse, Austin

Werk Bar, El Paso
Marty's Live, Dallas
Elevate Night Club, McAllen

The recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Lubbock is attributed to people in their 20s going to bars. Governor Abbott even specifically mentioned Lubbock County for this in his statewide update last week. He said the same thing was happening in Bexar and Cameron counties.
