ANC Preview: Tiki Boat Edition

Tiki Torch

The ANC meets for its April session tonight at its usual bat time (6:30) and its usual bat channel (this zoom link). The agenda is mostly humdrum, but there are a few exceptions.

The first is a liquor license request from the Potomac Tiki Club. Specifically it’s a request for a marine vessel license. What it will be is a floating bar, but like some of those rolling bars you may have seen in tourist towns like Nashville, the bar patrons will be pedaling the boat. The boat will be based out of the Washington Harbour complex, and–like those rolling Nashville bars–will likely be super annoying to be around. Or maybe not, who knows. (Edit: Turns out this isn’t a peddle boat. It’s just a floating bar, which still sounds like it might get loud and annoying to other river-users…)

The second interesting presentation will come from Chris Martin, who is a principal at Martin-Diamond properties. He will be there to discuss his company’s plans for their properties in Georgetown. Those most notably include several buildings that were formerly among the cheap suit row of properties. As GM has previously mentioned, these will soon have a trendy French bakery and a bubble tea joint. It will be interesting to hear what else they have planned.

Here is the rest of the agenda:
