After being unable to meet Monday evening, Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2A will be hold a special meeting this Thursday just in time to allow some restaurants and bars to extend their hours of alcohol service for the weekend of the Inauguration.
Requests from four Foggy Bottom establishments to waive their voluntary agreements so they can extend their hours of alcohol service until 4 a.m. between Jan. 17 and Jan. 21 will be considered at the meeting, which is to be held at St. Mary’s Court, on 24th Street, at 7 p.m.
Marshall’s Bar and Grille, Shadow Room nightclub, McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon, and The GW Inn, which has a restaurant, Notti Bianche, are all listed on the meeting’s agenda.
Though the deadline for these establishments to send letters from the ANC to the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration giving them permission to extend alcohol service is Thursday afternoon – before the meeting is to be held -Chairman Asher Corson was able to get an extension from the interim director of ABRA, Fred Moosally, he said.
Corson said he will make sure that Moosally receives copies of any letters for restaurants the ANC might approve as soon as possible. He also said that Moosally may attend Thursday’s ANC meeting.
