From the October 2014 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

JP’s Lounge (2412 Wisconsin Ave.) may have closed, but its drama lives on. In July, the strip club’s former owner, Michael Papanicolas, sued the company he sold it to, Wisconsin Ventures LLC, for breach of contract. (Two months after the August, 2012 sale, Wisconsin Ventures turned the club over to The Vice Group, a different company with some of the same owners.)

Papanicolas’s complaint alleges that Wisconsin Ventures still owes him $375,000 from the deal. Paul Kadlick, a principal of Wisconsin Ventures and spokesman for The Vice Group, is named as a co-defendant in the suit. According to the complaint, the total purchase price for the club was $600,000, and Papanicolas received a hefty down payment, as well as scheduled monthly payments of $1,500 through last September. “Since October 1, 2013, and through the present, Plaintiff has not received any payments whatsoever,” the complaint states. Neither Kadlick nor Wisconsin Ventures has formally responded to the suit, according to court documents. JP’s has been closed since July, when its operators were evicted for nonpayment of rent.

From the October 2014 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Slate Wine Bar & Bistro (2404 Wisconsin Ave.) unveiled a new menu during their anniversary week in late August. Restaurateur Danny Lledó designed the new roster, which includes small plates such as blistered shishito peppers and duck breast egg rolls; entrees including eggplant parmesan and pan-seared salmon barigoule; and three- or five-course tasting menus. The restaurant’s brunch menu has also been revamped, but don’t worry: the Slate burger with applewood bacon still appears on both menus.
