The Arlington Community Tries to Save the Westover Beer Garden

A year ago, the Westover Market opened a small beer garden that has been embraced by the community. On weekend nights, it is the best place to meet your neighbors; a family friendly place where kids dance to live music and neighbors share drinks and stories. It is one of the places that make the town of Westover such a unique and tight-knit community. Unfortunately, after receiving a noise complaint, the county zoning commission forced the Beer Garden to go silent.
