On October 3, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board OK’d a controversial license transfer, approving the application of Jason K. Daniel and Philip M. Mathew to take over the liquor license for JP’s Night Club (2412 Wisconsin Ave.), an ABRA spokesman tells us. Last month, Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B had requested that the ABC Board make no transfer until they held a public hearing to assess the fitness of the two young men to revive the strip club, which has been closed since a January 2008 fire.

A contributor to the “I Saw Your Nanny” blog reports having witnessed a disturbing scene at Guy Mason this morning: a nanny responsible for a little girl allowed the child to wander into harm’s way near the swing set and then treated her carelessly on the swings. “She just dropped your daughter into the swing without properly getting her legs through the holes of the swing, which looked unsafe,” the contributor writes in an open letter to the child’s parents. “When she took her out of the swing, she did it so roughly that your daughter’s leg got smacked on the hard rim of the swing, and the nanny did not apologize.”

The nanny in question has black hair and speaks Spanish. The child is a 2- or 3-year-old girl with white-blond hair that’s usually worn in a ponytail with bangs clipped to the side. She favors pink dresses “that look like they came straight out of ‘The Magic Wardrobe’ shop window,” according to the contributor, and her stroller is a tan-seated Stokke Xplory model.
