Assembly votes to allow bar to sell license

- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Anchorage Assembly has weighed in on whether a bar in downtown Anchorage that has been a magnet for trouble should be allowed to sell its license. The city assembly voted 8-to-3 on Tuesday in favor of allowing the owner of Rumrunner's Old Towne Bar & Grille to transfer the license to T.G.I. Friday's, as long as new owner Bruce Burnett meets certain conditions.  Rumrunner's unexpectedly shut its doors on Sunday. Earlier this month, bar owner Basilio Gallo agreed to sell his liquor license, but some city assembly members felt he should lose the license instead. Rumrunner's is to go on trial in January on charges of evidence tampering, falsifying records and felony assault after a former bouncer allegedly beat a customer in the bar's basement.
