Pub recommended for liquor license

The owner of Mac’s Pub & Patio, a new restaurant in the Continental Shopping Plaza, has received a liquor license recommendation from the Pima County Board of Supervisors. 

The board on Tuesday voted in favor of a recommendation for Christopher James Macauley for a new liquor license for the space formerly occupied by Trivetti’s Restaurant. 

The ultimate decision rests with the Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control, which generally follows the recommendations of local authorities. His company is called Macauley Concepts LLC and the ACC records say he formed the company in 2009 and is the sole owner.
