Daily Dining News: Shady Lady Shut Down, New Owners for La Bonne Soupe Cafe

If you're looking for the artisnal cocktails at Shady Lady, you'll need to wait 10 days. Sac Bee's Chris Macias explains:

The popular watering hole had its alcohol license suspended on May 10, due to Shady Lady's owners failing to notify California Alcoholic Beverage Control about a change in its business structure.

Shady Lady was granted its liquor license under the name of its individual owners: Jason Boggs, Garrett Van Vleck and Alex Origoni.

The business partners behind Shady Lady agreed to a 10-day suspension of its liquor license, said ABC spokesman John Carr.
