The Scoreboard Opens Dining Room, Gets QPD Warning, Closes
A popular Quincy business opened its doors to the public in defiance of Governor Pritzker’s stay at home order Monday.
The Scoreboard had been offering curb side pickup only since the governor’s first Executive Order was issued in March.
Business owner Judy Huff opened the Scoreboard to dine-in customers about 10 a.m. Monday, and she soon had a packed house.
Later Monday, Quincy Police arrived to issue Huff a written warning and explained to Huff why she should not be open.
Huff closed the dining room and said she would return to curb side only service Tuesday.
A statement was issued later on the Quincy Police Department Facebook page, stating that Huff had contacted their office early Monday about her intention to open for one day only.
Also, QPD emphasized that the Scoreboard was only issued a warning and not a citation.
