Idols at Rand & Dundee Closed: Liquor License Revoked for Owner’s Felony Criminal Damage Record

Idols Sport Bar at Rand and Dundee closed its doors November 23, 2010 because owner Michael Koumandarakis can no longer hold a liquor license in the village because of a felony conviction on his record. Michael Koumandarakis had a March 2010 felony conviction for criminal damage to vehicle exceeding $300 after he damaged a car with a walking stick — busting out windows and breaking off the rear view mirror. The subjects with the damaged vehicle were in a dispute with Michael’s son. Koumandarakis was sentenced to 18 months probation, 125 hours public service and ordered to pay $1,000 restitution on the criminal damage to vehicle conviction.
