Group fights to change alcohol ban in the Heights

The fight continues to get rid of a decades-old ban on selling booze in the Heights.

HOUSTON - The fight continues to change a decades-old ban on selling booze in the Heights.

Now a group wants to loosen the rules for restaurants and bars.

Last year, voters agreed to life the 104-year-old alcohol ban for grocery stores. Customers who want to drink alcohol at restaurants or bars in the Heights can do so now, but they have to join a private club.

The Houston Heights Beverage Restaurant Coalition has applied for a petition that would life that requirement. The group hopes to get the issue on the ballot in November.
