Pound Seeks Beer and Wine License – Will Offer Full Dinner Service in December
by Larry Janezich
Last Thursday night, ANC6B’s ABC Committee, chaired by Commissioner Carol Green, heard a request from Karl Johnson, one of the owners of Pound at 621 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, for a new beer and wine license. Pound anticipates offering full dinner service seven days a week inside, in its private garden, and at the sidewalk café in front. If all goes well, Johnson said, the dinner menu will be available the second week of December.
Commissioner Ivan Frishberg – who lives behind the coffeehouse – requested that this issue be forwarded to the full ANC without recommendation pending his checking with nearby neighbors on a proposed 10:30pm closing time for the private garden. Frishberg was optimistic the neighbors would sign off on this request.
