Due to violations that stemmed from a felony assault, the D.C. Alcohol and Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) shut down Third Edition for three days in early August.
The bar was closed from August 8 to August 10. According to the Georgetowner, ABRA temporarily closed Third Edition for violating its security plan and voluntary agreement on several occasions. The felony assault, which occurred last February, sparked a six-month investigation of the bar; the violations were discovered during the course of the investigation.
Third Edition’s owners also had to pay a $1,750 fine.
For the sake of those underage among us, let’s hope that these violations don’t affect Thirds’ lax carding policy.
