On Thursday, Pigeon Forge will vote again on whether to allow liquor by the drink at area restaurants.
It passed in November, but became the subject of a court battle over whether all the votes were valid.
According to the city, 11 restaurants in the Sevier County town have their license to serve mixed drinks, including the Mellow Mushroom. They were one of the first to obtain a license with the ABC in mid-December.
"You know, it's gone pretty flawlessly," said manager Tom Horne.
The question is, could it be taken away with Thursday's vote?
"Right now, it would be up to the state to make that decision, and they haven't said definitively what would happen in that case," Horne added.
Around town, there is a lot of discussion over the rule, specifically Concerned Churches and Citizens of Pigeon Forge, who are against the measure, and Forging Ahead, who'= is in favor of it.
City leaders said whether you are "for" or "against" the continuation of liquor by the drink, it is helping bring in more money for the town.
"When you have more people in town, eating in the restaurants and then the opportunity to purchase additional alcoholic beverages probably impacted that number," said Pigeon Forge assistant city manager Eric Brackins.
10News obtained Pigeon Forge restaurant tax returns from December 2012 to January 2013, during the time liquor by the drink was legal. They report a combined total of $176,979.78 in returns.
The same time frame a year ago (December 2011 and January 2012), when liquor by the drink was illegal, tax returns were at $159,464.80, nearly $17,000 less.
Brackins said liquor is not the sole reason for the increase, but it does help.
"More folks in town, additional possible businesses, and of course, to sell liquor by the drink," he said.
So as these bars get busy Wednesday, so will the voting booths the next morning.
"I'm going to remain optimistic and say we're going to pass," Mellow Mushroom manager Horne commented.
10News also obtained the financial disclosure forms from both Concerned Churches and Citizens of Pigeon Forge and Forging Ahead. They show Forging Ahead spent 10 times more than their opponents in advance of Thursday's vote.
