Near-northeast/Massachusetts Avenue neighbors: are you concerned about the petition for extended liquor-serving hours for the new tenant in the former White Tiger space? Perhaps you are excited that the Michael Romeo Group, who own Lotus and FUR nightclubs among other properties, is taking over the space and asking to serve liquor until 3 or 4 am, because you feel that this section of Massachusetts Avenue, NE, could use an increase in nightlife traffic.
Maybe you are not as excited, and know that it will be hard to keep down the noise and traffic in this highly residential part of the Hill. If you are in the latter group and can sneak away at lunchtime, you should definitely attend the hearing going on at the Reeves Center, 2000 14th Street NW, TODAY, December 11, at 1:30 pm. Your presence alone will boost the neighbors who will be testifying against this liquor license change. A concerned neighbor left this video from WUSA-9 in the comments from an earlier post: it gives you more context as to who the owners are.
