ANC will not hold special meeting tonight

Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2A Chairman Asher Corson had hoped to hold an emergency meeting Monday night to discuss allowing some local bars to extend their hours this weekend, but it looks like the meeting will not happen this evening.

The meeting may be held Tuesday evening or it may not be held at all, Corson said today. Presumably, if the ANC did not meet and vote to temporarily waive any establishment’s voluntary agreement that limits their hours of operation, some local bars and restaurants wouldn’t be able to stay open later this weekend.

Establishments with voluntary agreements that want to stay open later must submit a letter from the ANC to the D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration by Jan. 15 saying they can extend their hours.
