With everyone’s favorite amateur photog soliciting ANC support, a bi-decennial liquor license moratorium discussion, a Late Night Shots founder pushing for greater leeway for his new restaurant, and a debate about the relative merits of pizza and crepes as drunk food, May’s ANC meeting was about as exciting as they come.
Stalker Becomes Stalkee? DrunkenGeorgetownStudents.com founder Stephen R. Brown made an appearance yesterday’s meeting, donning a Canadian Tuxedo and asking the ANC to make a statement against students threatening residents. Brown claimed he has been stalked and threatened by students because of his website. Burleith Citizens Association President Lenore Rubino chimed in her support, saying that she knows of other residents who have been threatened and intimidated by students.
The ANC did not make an official motion on the issue, but they did do some speechifying against harassment. ANC Chair Ron Lewis declared, “We abhor threats to our residents” and encouraged Brown to work with the Metropolitan Police Department to address the issue. Lt. John Hedgcock said he was aware of one incident of threatening behavior towards Brown and that MPD is “actively investigating” it.
Crêpe Amour: The Next Philly P? When campus media was looking to anoint the heir to Philly P, they largely left out Crêpe Amour, the new M Street creperie. But the ANC has their suspicions about the restaurant, which is petitioning to extend its operating hours. The restaurant went into yesterday’s meeting hoping to secure permission to operate 24 hours a day. But the ANC, still healing its Philly P-induced wounds, was not having it.
“We’ve been through such incredible brain damage right around the corner,” Commissioner Bill Skelsey said. “What’s the difference between crepes and pizza?”
Crêpe Amour’s representative tried to back away from the 24-hour request, floating a 2 a.m. closing time instead, and the ANC’s Student Representative Aaron Golds testified that drunk college students actually are not equally fond of crepes and jumbo slices, but in the end the ANC agreed that further meetings would be necessary to hammer out an agreement.
After the jump, read about the exciting world of Voluntary Agreements and liquor license moratoriums!

I went to a house party that looked like that for just $10!
Whatever you did for New Year’s Eve, you probably had a better time than if you’d partied with the LateNightShots crew, the preppy, mostly Republican coterie that throws invite-only fundraisers in and around Georgetown bars.
On December 31, 2009, founder Reed Landry and member and Georgetown graduate Fritz Brogan (COL ’07) (whom the Voice once dubbed the ultimate Hoya) threw a $100-a-head NYE gala in the National Building Museum. And if the torrent of mail directed at DCist and comment on the Washington Post‘s reader review page are any indication, it sucked out loud.
“Total chaos all night, alcohol ran out by 11pm, and the building was ultimately destroyed on the inside.”
“Last night was by far one of the worst events I’ve ever attended. It took 45 minutes to get in. It was like the bread line during the Great Depression. Once we got in, there were more lines…lines for the bar, lines for the coat check, lines for the restroom.”
Those are some choice quotes from indignant partygoers who wrote in to DCist (partygoers who, DCist does not fail to remind us, paid $100 to go to a NYE party).

The Real World D.C.‘s first airdate, December 30, is close at hand—and here’s hoping RWDC has plenty of glam shots of Georgetown, because for now, it looks like that’s it for Georgetown reality show junkies looking to get their fill of “Hey, I’ve been there!” moments.
Blonde Charity Mafia, a reality show about the Late Night Shots crowd (the Georgetown-centric private social network for aspiring/alcoholic future-trophy wives and young Republicans, as Vox‘s Juliana Brint so aptly put it) appears to have gotten the ax from its network, the CW.
The Washington Post reports that the show has been removed from the CW’s website, pulled a Facebook fan page, and that its actors have been told that they are “free to search for other TV project options.” Ouch.
All this, after the show’s original airdate was already pushed back from this summer.
Reliable Source has the deets the what we’re missing out on—like “Made-for-TV” parties that the producers organized when real party hosts didn’t want to let camera crews into their homes. At one such “Welcome to Washington!” fête, one of the four starlets supposedly meets a Congressman who gave her a job. I’ll bet!

Oh, Blonde Charity Mafia, what will our summer be without you?
With all the talk about the “Real World” filming in Dupont and the “Real Housewives” series coming to D.C., you may have forgotten about the original D.C.-based reality series, “Blonde Charity Mafia.” The show, which is supposed to be “The Hills” but focused on Late Night Shots (the Georgetown-centric private social network for aspiring/alcoholic future-trophy wives and young Republicans) members, was scheduled to run as a six-week series on the CW, starting July 7.
But word came yesterday that the premiere has been pushed back to a “later, unspecified date.” Yikes. Is that TV lingo for “No, you’re never going to get to see all the dramz at Smith Point”?
Well, maybe not, according to the Washington Post‘s Lisa De Moraes:
Word is Dawn Ostroff, CW programming chief, liked the six half-hours that have been ordered and knew that, in a summer run, the network could not really give the show the kind of marketing and support it merited.
So, instead of debuting July 7, as planned, “Blonde Charity Mafia” — or “BCM,” as it’s called in the halls of CW — is going to be held to run some time during the official broadcast TV season. It’s being held for “midseason,” which means any time after the start of the season, in mid-September.
Yes, that’s right, “BCM” just got a promotion — before it’s even aired.
Guess we’ll just have to wait a little longer to watch all those deep conversations at Dean & Deluca…
