Jumpin Jupiter is Back in Business
The Maplewood club has settled with the state for the third time this year.
The Jumpin Jupiter's doors are open again.
For the third time this year, owner Jim Callahan has lost then regained his license to do business in Maplewood. All three times were for nonpayment of state taxes.
He lost it then settled with the state, for the first time, in a week in June and July.
After losing the license a second time, in November, owner Jim Callahan drove to Jefferson City to clear his record.
Two weeks later Maplewood Police cleared the venue on a Sunday night because he hadn't met his tax obligations to the state, and the city had pulled the license for a third time.
Now, just in time for an already scheduled New Year's Eve show, The Jumpin Jupiter's state taxes have been paid.
Friday morning at 11:30 Callahan showed his 'no tax due letter' to city clerk Karen Scheidt at city hall. She said she called the state to comfirm the letter.
