 Don’t let Insomnia Cookies keep you awake… until 4 AM

Insomnia Cookies, a chain that establishes itself adjacent to college campuses is planning to go before the Licensing Board to seek an extended hours closing time. Their planned location on Thayer Street (across from the Post office) will provide walk-in and delivery service until 4 AM.

CHNA opposes a 4 AM closing time on Thayer Street as this creates a significant increase in traffic, noise, litter etc.  Allowing a 4 AM closing time would also set a monumental precedent for other establishments on Thayer (and the city) to ask for a similar closing time!

CHNA just learned today that Insomnia Cookies will be appearing before the Licensing Board tomorrow (Thursday, July 14) to seek approval to advertise for the actual hearing, which has not yet been scheduled.

CHNA believes it’s in our best interest to preserve our neighborhood by speaking up early and often on issues that impact our quality of life.  If allowed, it will become a magnet for all those seeking a place to eat and hang out until 4 AM especially when the crowds from restaurants and bars that close at current closing times of 1 AM or 2 AM (Fri/Sat) filter into College Hill with Thayer street as their destination. This has the potential to create a significant noise issue for nearby residents.

This could also result in an increase in late night disturbances and a need for extended Police patrol hours.

Would you be willing to appear in front of the Licensing Board tomorrow at 1pm to oppose this license request?  

Please don’t let Insomnia Cookies keep you up at night!

Providence City Hall, 25 Dorrance St, Room 112.
Please reference item 2 in Board of License Docket.
