We just learned from Joe Barrios that the ABRA hearing regarding the Brookland’s Finest Restaurant liquor license application  has been changed from 4pm to 7pm today. We posted the details about the hearing a few days ago here.

Please make sure you share this information with neighbors and friends who plan to attend the hearing today.

 Joe’s email reads:

Neighbors,

I just got word from the Brookland’s Finest owners. They were notified by ABRA that today’s hearing has been pushed to 7 PM Eastern. There is another contentious hearing immediately before it, which is causing the delay. Please plan accordingly.

DATE: Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

TIME: ***7:00 PM ET***
ARRIVAL: Arrive early if you want seating! You must also pass through security.
LOCATION: Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA)
2000 14th Street, NW, Suite 400 South
Washington, D.C. 20009

LENGTH: The hearing can last up to 4 hours, please plan accordingly.
GETTING THERE: The location is at 14th and U St NW. Parking is a challenge. The closest metro stop, a block away, is the U Street stop on the Green/Yellow line.

Best,

Jose “Joe” Barrios

    1. Hi JD,
      We weren’t able to attend but I hear that both sides presented their case well. The ABRA Board has 60 days to issue its ruling. After that, (assuming the license is granted) there will be the opportunity for protesters to request a reconsideration and appeal to the DC Court of Appeals. Obviously, this would delay the restaurant’s opening. However, from what I understand, overturning an ABRA decision is highly unlikely.

      Thanks for reading,
      Shani
