Thursday, September 4th, 2008 at 5:44 am

Red Dog Billy’s Bar & Grill in Pine City may soon have a new home. Owner Jeff Flaherty spoke to the Pine City Council Wednesday and said that he and the Lodge Hotels are in the process of purchasing 5.3 acres near the McDonald’s in Pine City.

The initial plan is to put both a hotel and restaurant side by side. Flaherty says he believes the move can help attract other business’ to the city.

The hotel will be a 50 room hotel, with an over 300 person banquet hall. It will also have a water park for children. Flaherty says the new Red Dog Billy’s will keep plans to have a bowling alley, but instead of 12 lanes, there will be 14. Down the road he hopes to add a miniature golf course as part of the connected facility. The council plans to give a final vote on the new facilities at a special meeting next week. Flaherty and the Lodge are still working out land details.

If approved next week, the project is expected to take seven to eight months.

    This place has been nothing but a waste of space and the towns resources, since red dogs opening there may have been satisfactory food but a night life ran by a corrupt manager an owner who has turned a blind eye to drugs,fights and all out abuse by his employees.
    In my opinion the best thing to have happened is the liquor license gone bad for this establishment.He is a man with a broken vision and to him i say: WHAT GOES AROUND HAS COME BACK AROUND! What you have done,not just to the town but to the people is a disgrace,especially knowing the wrong doings of your employees and not doing anything. By the way this is no rumor only fact. God Bless and good bye
