The venerable Blue Beet nightclub may reopen in as soon as two weeks, now that the city has agreed its owner doesn't have to bring the 1912 building up to current standards. Owner Sid Soffer had been fighting with the city, which said he or whoever he sold the restaurant to would have to get a new operating permit to reopen the landmark establishment at the Newport Pier.

A Mexican restaurant threatened with loss of its live entertainment permit has sued the city in federal court, alleging violations of free speech and other rights. Via Maria nearly lost its permit twice last year after the City Council called review hearings in response to complaints of noise and fights in the Ball Street restaurant's parking lot. A third review is set for later this month.

For the third time in a year, the City Council will consider whether Via Maria Restaurant should be allowed to offer live entertainment. Council members this week called for a review hearing, to be held Feb. 23, in the wake of a Jan. 4 stabbing in the Mexican restaurant's parking lot and several other recent calls for police. "The felony assaults pose a threat to the community," Mayor Mary Ann Jones said. "They are significant incidents to warrant a public hearing."

The City Council tonight will consider joining a South County municipal group that would work with county and state officials to streamline permit procedures for businesses. Firms that need multiple applications from state agencies dealing with issues including hazardous materials, fire, police and sewer services would be able to submit a single compliance plan at an office in Lake Forest. The proposed permit consolidation zone--a pilot project run by the state--would cover South County.

An adult business that had been scheduled to begin operating within a week in Leimert Park Village will not be allowed to open because it lacks the proper permits and is in violation of city regulations, Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas said Thursday. Certain permits and licenses can be avoided by obtaining a waiver from a Los Angeles City Council member. However, because of the nature of the business, waivers will not be granted in this case, an aide to Ridley-Thomas said.
