"That was a big victory," said Dan Marcheano, president of the Newport Beach Restaurant Assn. "The city made the right decision and we feel we have turned the corner in our relationship with them." On Monday, the City Council overturned Police Chief Robert J.

The City Council on Monday will consider an application by Blackie's by the Sea to sell liquor in addition to beer and wine.

It's known as Party Central. The stretch of 1950s duplexes between 54th and 36th streets along Seashore Drive in West Newport--a magnet for summer renters and college students--has an ambience that contrasts sharply with the rest of the city's affluent, homeowner neighborhoods. Over the years, the party atmosphere, noise and rowdiness had become a problem for some permanent residents.

Beginning today, the city will close Balboa Pier from midnight to 5 a.m., imposing the same curfew set in June for Newport Pier. The city's goal is to curb crime and reduce litter, City Manager Kevin J. Murphy said in a written statement. Though adopted in February, the curfew had not been enforced at Balboa Pier because signs and a gate had not been installed. Now that is done, officials said. When the Newport Pier curfew took effect, it drew a mixed response from anglers.

The city's massage technicians and therapists, who for months have been at odds with some residents and officials over regulation of their business, have been invited to help put the final touches on a new ordinance governing the issue. Technicians and their attorneys have complained that the city's existing rules are too stringent and presume that all massage businesses are more akin to prostitution than to therapeutic services.

No more fishing all night in this city. Beginning today, the city will close the Newport Pier from midnight to 5 a.m. in a move aimed at curtailing crime and reducing fish waste on the pier's deck. Although adopted in February, the policy did not go into effect until today. The curfew will also apply to the city's Balboa Pier but won't be enforced until a gate and signs are installed later this month, said Peggy Ducey, assistant to the city manager.

Since last summer, the city's Bicycle Trails Advisory Committee has been studying how to make bicycle riding safer at night and on the bridge over West Coast Highway.

Owners of small restaurants applauded city officials this week for tentatively approving sidewalk dining, a change they say will give Newport Beach the cosmopolitan touch it needs to attract tourists. "If you are in Europe, it's common to have tables on the sidewalks and in plazas," said Karl Poetes, owner of Caffe Carluccio on the Balboa Peninsula. "It gives tourists an opportunity to walk and sit and watch people go by." Since last summer, the Newport Beach Restaurant Assn.

After more than two years of legal battles with the city, a restaurant with live nude entertainment has opened. Owners of Mermaid, which opened Feb. 9 at 4248 MacArthur Blvd., had fought since November 1993 for permission to operate in Newport Beach. Meanwhile, city policy makers had drafted and redrafted adult-business laws to restrict such establishments. On Jan. 23, however, Judge John C.

Owners of six massage businesses have filed a lawsuit against the city, alleging that a 1994 law regulating their operations is an attempt to shut them down. In 1992, the City Council adopted an ordinance requiring all massage businesses to apply for operating licenses. Two years later, council members added a provision requiring masseurs seeking licenses to meet several requirements, including passing a written test with a 70% score.
