Schmidt’s wins approval for earlier hours

ELBURN—The Elburn Village Board on Monday approved an ordinance to allow Schmidt’s Towne Tap on Main Street in Elburn to open for business and serve alcohol inside and in its outdoor garden beginning at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 29. The regular hours for serving alcohol on Sunday are 11 a.m.

Owner Kevin Schmidt requested the one-day approval so that Schmidt’s can have a tailgate event prior to the game between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. The game will begin at noon.
