A man charged with threatening a staffer of Kitchen (2404 Wisconsin Ave.) has agreed to a plea deal in the case. Matthew Robertson was escorted from the restaurant on July 24 because he was setting napkins on fire, according to police and court documents. Once outside the bar, he produced a knife and waved it at a staffer, a police report said. On October 26, Robertson agreed to perform 48 hours of community service and stay out of trouble for six months. If he does so, the case against him will be dismissed.

UPDATE: Robertson successfully completed his pre-trial diversion program. On April 26, 2012, his guilty plea was withdrawn and his case was dismissed.

Representatives from The Good Guys (2311 Wisconsin Ave.) were also scheduled to appear before the ABC Board on November 30 to answer questions about a May fight outside the club. According to a police report, two men attacked three other men after they all exited the club that night, causing bloody lips, a swollen eye, and a possible broken nose. The two attackers then fled the scene in a northbound taxi. While the fight began outside the club, one of the responding officers told an ABRA investigator that more attention from club staff might have averted the problem. “It would have helped if the front door bouncer could have remained outside during closing time to make sure all parties would have been sent on their way in separate directions,” he reportedly said.

Last February, a woman was found unconscious inside the bar then called Gin & Tonic—what’s now The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.). Representatives of the bar were scheduled to appear before the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board on November 30 to answer questions about the incident.

According to an Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration investigator’s report, a woman who attended a birthday party at the club on February 13 was discovered passed out in the ladies’ room, hunched over a toilet. Some friends brought her out to the street, where police arrived and an ambulance was summoned. Throughout, the woman was unconscious and unresponsive, the report stated. The investigator couldn’t determine the cause of the woman’s condition, because neither she nor the patron who discovered her returned his calls about the incident.
