"When you sit down to have a steak you like to have a glass of red wine or a nice martini. It just fits our plan on what we are wanting to do here in Kilgore." - Wes Ebey, Owner of Jack Ryan's Steakhouse 

To get the measure place on the May ballot. The petition had to have at least 777 registered voters. The petition got 850.
