The Week Ahead… and, so, what ‘s the problem with the axe throwing bar in SW?

by Larry Janezich

The week ahead has ANC6D discussing the $12,000 fine for the axe throwing bar “Kracken Axes” at Field House DC in SW.  The outlet was fined in by city’s alcohol licensing board for violations including or connected to illegal sale of alcohol, no Certificate of occupancy, and interfering with an investigation – not that you would find those details in 6D’s agenda.  ANC6D continues to make its published agenda as non-transparent as possible, so it’s also hard to figure out what the liquor license issue with Circa at Navy Yard is all about – likewise with the several public space applications on their draft agenda.  And 6D is also considering the renewal of a license to sell medical marijuana in 6D at an unnamed and unspecified location; how do they get away with that?

ANC6A’s Transportation Committee will talk about requiring Rock N Roll race organizers to re-route the resident-vexing Marathon to lessen the  impact on 6A’s neighborhood.

Also, GoBus service from Eastern Market to NYC launches at 8:00am, Monday, from 8th and Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, at an introductory $9 one-way fare.  Not sure how long that will last.

ANC6A’s Alcohol beverage Committee is considering a new restaurant license for O2 (Oxygen, one gathers) at 1350-1352 H Street, NE.

And ANC6A’s Economic and Development Committee meets on Wednesday, but hasn’t quite gotten around to posting the agenda by CHC’s press time.  We’ll post it if and when.

And, the Capitol Hill Restoration Society is sponsoring an exposition in the North Hall of Eastern Market on Sunday, the 21st, with 30 exhibitors to answer any question you have about interior or exterior improvements to your Capitol Hill home.

By the way – the Friends of Southeast Library raised more than $1,700.00 for the Library at last Saturday’s book sale – and stay tuned for some upcoming info on the first community meeting late in the month on the renovation/rebuilding of Southeast Library.
