North Adams Country Club Obtains License

The North Adams Board of Licensing has approved a restaurant license for the North Adams Country Club and golf course on the condition that no more than 35 percent of its total gross come from alcohol sales. The board referred to the past problems with the former Mountainview Restaurant, which had opened as a dining establishment but had morphed into a nightclub. Jim Basiliere, representing the new ownership group, agreed, saying the club would be used as a banquet hall but there was no intention of turning it into a bar.
