Recher Theatre liquor board hearing rescheduled for Nov. 19

The Recher Theatre's liquor board hearing for its role in the Sept. 24 late-night violence in Towson has been rescheduled for Monday, Nov. 19, Baltimore County spokeswoman Ellen Kobler Wednesday.

The hearing was originally scheduled for this past Monday, but was postponed late last week as the county made preparations for Hurricane Sandy.

Brian and Scott Recher, who own the Recher Theatre, the Rec Room, and Towson Tavern in downtown Towson, were summoned before the board on allegations that they were not in compliance with Rule 3B of the county's liquor laws, which states "all licensees shall operate their establishments in such a manner as to avoid disturbing the peace, tranquility, safety, health, and quiet of the neighborhood where located."

Late on Saturday, Sept. 24, police said 2,500 people gathered in downtown Towson after the Recher hosted a fraternity party that reached capacity within an hour of its doors opening.

Baltimore County police arrested four people for failing to leave the area, and another three were arrested for assaulting police officers.

Monday's original hearing was postponed late last week as the county made preparations for Hurricane Sandy.

Originally, the Nov. 19 meeting was scheduled to begin at 2:05 p.m., but Kobler said Friday, Nov. 2 that a scheduling conflict had caused the meeting time to be moved to 11:05 a.m.

The hearing wil be held in Room 104 of the Jefferson Building, 105 W. Chesapeake Ave., Towson.
