Town Hall's fake ID collage“As intern season begins anew in DC, and the young-ins return home from school, we would like to take this opportunity to highlight the work our door staff put in last summer,” wrote Town Hall (2340 Wisconsin Ave.) on its Instagram yesterday. The message was accompanied by a map of the continental United States made out of fake IDs confiscated from would-be underage drinkers. It bore the tongue-in-cheek hashtags #summer #21jumpstreet #badboys #weknowyourparents, and #notonourwatch.

Early Saturday morning, a 19-year-old waitress was sexually abused in an alley on the 2300-2400 block of Wisconsin Ave., according to NBC News4. “Sources tell News4 the suspect was a customer at the establishment where the woman worked earlier in the evening,” the station reported. “The customer was ‘pushy’ toward the woman while she was working, but she had ignored his advances at the time, sources say. The victim told police the suspect pulled her into an alley just before closing time and tried to get her to perform a sexual act, but she was able to run away and call 911.” Other news outlets reported slight variations on this account, according to a roundup in The Georgetowner.

Metropolitan Police have not released a description of the suspect, according to the reports. In fact, the department originally stonewalled a public official seeking any information on the incident. After a bare-bones report of “First Degree Sex Abuse – Force” appeared on the MPD-2D Yahoo newsgroup, Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Jackie Blumenthal posted to request additional information. “Due to the nature of the investigation, no details will be shared concerning this offense,” Lt. John Hedgecock responded. “There is no threat to the community as a result of this incident.”

From the May 2014 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave.) is facing potential discipline from the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration after an audit revealed that the bar had misreported its food and alcohol sales numbers for calendar year 2012. Although the restaurant took in more than the minimum gross food sales of $2,000 per seat, it did not report its actual sales, due to what the owners termed “a clerical error.” In an April 22 letter to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, co-owner Bill Thomas wrote, “I accidentally overstated our liquor sales. What idiot does that?” A report by ABRA investigator Adeniyi Adejunmobi challenges this assertion, though, stating that “based on the audit performed, Breadsoda underreported food and alcoholic beverages sales.” A hearing on the matter has been tentatively scheduled for May 21.
