Last Chance To Get Second Chance?

The Sun reports that two prospective business people have applied for a liquor license to reopen a restaurant in the Oakland Mills space once occupied by the Last Chance Saloon.

Wendy Binder, 49, of Burtonsville is the primary applicant for what she and minority partner Declan Wood plan to call the "Second Chance Saloon."

She said she chose the name because she wants to evoke the friendly, neighborhood pub style of the once-popular watering hole that closed in 2004 after 23 years. The last business in the building, the Fire Rock Grill, opened in December 2005 and closed last fall.

"It feels right," said Binder, who said she works part time at the National Science Teachers Association in Arlington, Va.

"I think we have good business sense," she said.

Her idea is to remove the wall between the bar area and the main dining room, leaving the back room for pool, darts and other games.

We'll be eager to get back to the darts board. We have a couple scores to settle.
