On Wednesday during a weekly city council meeting, Davenport aldermen voted to grant Chuck E. Cheese on Kimberly Road a new liquor license.

According to the Quad-City Times, earlier this month Davenport city council tried to block a new application for the restaurant due to a woman being killed there back in October of 2020. After the council learned the request for a license was due to a change in ownership, the city council approved a beer and wine liquor license for Chuck E. Cheese.

A district manager for Chuck E. Cheese said that the business sells alcoholic beverages but doesn’t advertise it reports the Quad-City Times. There also is a two-drink limit.

On October 25, 2020, Davenport responded to a report of shots fired inside Chuck E. Cheese at 7:38 p.m. When officers arrived, they found an unresponsive female. Officials say the victim received medical attention at the scene, but the victim was transported to Genesis East where she was pronounced deceased.

Treshonda Pollion, 24-years-old at the time, of Davenport, was arrested and charged with 1st Degree Murder. 29-year-old Eloise Chairs of Davenport was shot by Pollion inside of the Chuck E. Cheese on October 25th.

The Quad-City Times reports that Pollion pleaded guilty to a charge of voluntary manslaughter in the death of Eloise Chairs. Pollion's sentencing is scheduled for July 9.

Hotel Davenport Demolition

The Hotel Davenport is located at 5202 Brady St. and was reportedly built in the early 1970s. Earlier this year it was decided that this hotel was no longer set to have guests.

According to the Quad Cities times, the Davenport hotel has faced a number of fires, along with safety and health code violations. This has led to the call for its demolition. I've driven past it many times and have seen that the building had clearly began to deteriorate.

It was scheduled for demolition earlier this year, and said demolition began in April. Many involved in this project are excited to see what the future holds for this lot in Davenport.

I drive past this spot every day for work, and over the last month have snagged some pictures of the demolition.
