Commissioners to reconsider approval of Bulldog Tap expansion in south Fargo

FARGO – After hearing protests from some area bar owners, city here said they will take another look at a south Fargo bar they originally approved last summer.

The bar owners protested when they learned that Dave Erickson, of Bulldog Tap, 4265 45th St. S., was going to open up another bar nearby without applying for a second liquor license.

In the meantime, city officials have said the original commission action gives Erickson permission to open his new bar as is.

Erickson has said he would like to open the pub in time for St. Patrick's Day, March 17, but protesting bar owners wanted the city to look into it before
