From the October 2010 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Neighbors of Blue Ridge (2340 Wisconsin) have begun to complain about noise emanating from the restaurant’s upstairs event space, recently dubbed Hero Bar. On September 17, revelers on the restaurant’s second-floor deck were heard blocks away, late into the night. “I thought GU was playing its homecoming game in the field next to Whole Foods,” one irked neighbor joked on the Glover Park Yahoo newsgroup.
Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Jackie Blumenthal responded that, under the terms of the restaurant’s voluntary agreement with the ANC, alcohol can be served on the second-floor deck after midnight “once or twice a month, only for private catered parties, and only if neighbors do not complain.” She added that she had been working with the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) to determine whether Hero Bar is a permissible use of the restaurant’s license. At press time, the ANC was planning to discuss the situation at its September 28 meeting.
