WATSONVILLE — Three restaurants sought approval Tuesday from the Watsonville Planning Commission for extended hours and live entertainment, although two did not receive all they had asked for.
Taqueria Mundial was denied extended hours and live entertainment, while weekend entertainment was approved for D'Angelo's Restaurant, but with no extended hours.
Appleton Grill, on the other hand, was allowed extended weekend hours with live entertainment, but only for private events.
Taqueria Mundial, 1075 Main St., came under scrutiny recently when the city's Community Development Department received a complaint about live entertainment occurring at the restaurant, although it didn't have a permit to do so.
As the city was examining the business, they found that owner Carlos Hernandez did not apply for a beer and wine permit when he purchased the business in 2005, according to Keith Boyle, principal planner. Also, the city failed to follow up, an oversight by both parties, Boyle said.
"It fell through the cracks," he said.
