Prince Frederick, MD – For the third month in a row, the Calvert County of License Commissioners (Liquor Board) had no violations to rule on and no fines to levy when they convened June 28. Instead the panel took less than a half-hour to unanimously approve applications—for a change of limited liability company (LLC), a new license and a change of officer.
The Ruby Tuesday in Prince Frederick is now operated by a LLC whose license-holders are Robert Baldini, Edward J. Gillis and Christopher Moore. They will be trading as RT of Maryland LLC. Back in October NRD Capital took Ruby Tuesday private in a deal that valued the iconic restaurant at $335 million. The Prince Frederick location—which is now the only Ruby Tuesday in Southern Maryland since the California location closed earlier this year—holds a Class B “On Sale” Beer, Wine and Liquor License. “Everything remains the same,” said Baldini. “We all have an interest in the LLC.”
The board approved the application to place R. Dennis Benson’s name on the Class B “On Sale” Beer, Wine and Liquor license for the Prince Frederick Applebee’s, which is trading as Potomac of Calvert LLC.
An application for a Class B license submitted by Garrett Peck III and Preechaya Rugkoomgeaw of Thai Zapp Restaurant in Dunkirk was approved. Rugkoomgeaw told the board she would be the restaurant’s on-site manager and she would soon be obtaining her Training for Intervention Procedures (TIPs) and Techniques of Alcohol Management (TAMs) certification. Peck, who lives in Dunkirk, will be the Thai Zapp’s agent. Board member Frank B. Stull reminded Rugkoomgeaw to post signage at the restaurant stating no one under 21 will be served alcohol and no alcoholic beverages may be removed from the premises.
