Neighbors aren't exactly thrilled about the arrival of Bulldog Ale House, which will mark its territory at 2387 Joliet Highway. They've shared the area with a bar before, and told the board the business was nothing but disruptive.
One resident said she had inebriated strangers pounding on her door at 2 a.m., Sun-Times Media reports.
Despite neighbors' concerns, trustees signed off on two liquor licenses for the business, one of which was needed to offer a beer garden.
