ANC Preview: November Edition

1600 block of 31st St.

While all minds are on the upcoming Halloween, there’s an ANC meeting quickly in its wake! What will it be about? Find out below…if you DAAAAAREE!

Actually there’s little either trick or trick in the agenda. But there will likely be some heated words over three liquor licenses. They are all for establishments along Wisconsin between N and Q. The first is for Yummi Crawfish, the cajun(?) restaurant that took over the Cafe Puro space. The other two are not yet open but are set to go into 1419 (Salon Pejam) and 1515 (Rosselli Antiques) Wisconsin Ave. The 32nd St. neighbors behind these blocks are united in fear of what is going on here, and will likely demand a strict settlement agreement.

The new complex on Prospect proposed to be built over the old Doggett’s parking lot will also be heard. So far this project has produced little blowback from the community, so GM doesn’t expect too much static.

Here’s the full agenda:

Please Say this Isn’t One of Us

Halloween

Last week, the Slate advice column, Dear Prudence, took a letter from a grumpy person whose circumstances are uncomfortably close to the average Georgetowner. He or she writes:

Dear Prudence,
I live in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the country, but on one of the more “modest” streets—mostly doctors and lawyers and family business owners. (A few blocks away are billionaires, families with famous last names, media moguls, etc.) I have noticed that on Halloween, what seems like 75 percent of the trick-or-treaters are clearly not from this neighborhood. Kids arrive in overflowing cars from less fortunate areas. I feel this is inappropriate. Halloween isn’t a social service or a charity in which I have to buy candy for less fortunate children. Obviously this makes me feel like a terrible person, because what’s the big deal about making less fortunate kids happy on a holiday? But it just bugs me, because we already pay more than enough taxes toward actual social services. Should Halloween be a neighborhood activity, or is it legitimately a free-for-all in which people hunt down the best candy grounds for their kids?

—Halloween for the 99 Percent

Extremely wealthy neighborhood? Check. “Modest” blocks with mere doctors and lawyers? Check. Billionaires and media moguls nearby? Check. Halloween destination for children from across the city? Check. This definitely could be a Georgetowner.

Although it definitely could not be. There are other extremely wealthy neighborhoods across the country that surely attract a diverse Halloween crowd.  Continue reading
