(Northampton, MA) — Northampton entertainment mogul Eric Suher may be forced to give up two unused liquor licenses he’s been holding onto for quite some time. City Solicitor Alan Seewald is recommending the License Commission take the valuable alcohol permits back. One is for the old Baptist Church building on Main Street, and the other is for the Blue Note Guitar space on Center Street. In both cases Suher has been promising city officials for years that venues would be open in the two locations soon. Suher bought the church building in 1993, and it still sits vacant.
