Frosty Factory Reopening Before 30-Day Suspension Ends
July 27 marked the closing for the frozen beverage place known as Frosty Factory in Lake Charles. We wrote about the closure that came about as a result of the bar allegedly violating restrictions set in place by Governor Edwards. Alcohol and Tobacco Control stated Frosty Factory was caught violating these new rules put in place by the governor and as a result, their permit was suspended. The suspension was set to last for 30 days. After the 30 day mark, the bar would be allowed to reopen as long as they followed the strict guidelines set in place.
As of writing this article, the establishment has already been closed for seven days. The owner of the factory has worked a deal out with the state. According to a report on KPLC, the bar closure length has been reduced to being closed for 15 days instead of 30, and they are giving the bar credit for the seven days it has already been closed. They originally had a fine of $1,250, but that has now been reduced to just $250, assuming they can stay out of trouble for the rest of the current phase.
According to KPLC, the reason for the violation was a misinterpretation of the rules and dates set in place for Phase Two. The bar allowed patrons to watch an Astros game and also had a karaoke night.
