And we’ve heard a lot of opinions on what the city “should do” and rampant speculation as to why the council won’t do it.Well, here’s what we’re going to do.To start, we’re going to hold an administrative hearing on Rude Rudy’s alcohol license, as required by the city ordinances. We will hear the evidence, listen to the defense and make a determination about the fate of that license.If it sounds cut and dry, that’s because it is.
