The Advisory Neighborhood Commission met on Monday to discuss the usual—license approvals and community noise complaints. As expected, commissioners also mentioned the shenanigans in Harbin Hall, as well as a few local bars and restaurants. Here are the meeting’s highlights:
Neighbors’ complaints stall Third Edition’s liquor license
Commissioners voted to not support renewal of Third Edition’s liquor license on the grounds of neighbors’ complaints and the bar’s multiple ABRA violations. However, Third Edition isn’t going anywhere; Commissioner Bill Starrels assured the audience that the ANC did not want to run the bar out of Georgetown.
“The overarching problem is that they aren’t complying with the previous [voluntary] agreement,” Commission Charles Eason said.
The ANC will revisit the liquor license question after Third Edition’s voluntary agreement is revised to address noise concerns.
