From the May 2009 Glover Park Gazette:
File under: rumor control. A supposed “stabbing” at Gin & Tonic at 2408 Wisconsin was more of a scratching, according to the victim. A bartender at the club asked a cluster of five men to leave the bathroom on New Year’s Eve, and one of the men produced a sharp object and inflicted “a very small scratch” on the bartender’s abdomen, says the bartender, who asked that his name not be used. The scratcher fled the scene, and the scratchee returned to work without calling police. The police and ABRA later heard rumors of an attack and investigated the incident before putting the matter to rest.
