Update on King’s Deli Liquor License Application
Over the last few weeks I’ve had a number of residents contact me with concerns and opposition to King’s Deli’s liquor license application. I’m sure there are others who are concerned that have not reached out to me. So to help keep everyone posted, here’s where things are.
This Wednesday, October 26, the owner of King’s Deli and his lawyer are scheduled to be at the Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force meeting to discuss their application. That meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at G II (2632 Georgia Avenue). I encourage all neighborhood residents who are concerned about King’s to attend this meeting.
Thus far, ANC 1A passed a resolution protesting this application at their October 13th meeting. Additionally, the Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force and members of the Park View community are also working toward protests of their own.While ANCs have great weight, any community group of five or more can protest a liquor license.
Placards went up at King’s on September 23rd alerting the community of their application for a Class A license. Unlike most convenience stores which sell beer and wine (Class B), a Class A license permits the selling of beer, wine, and spirits.Liquor stores comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
