RAMW Urges Graham to Reform Liquor Law Licensing

We’ve been re-posting articles covering various DC area food freedom battles, many from the Washington Blade and the City Paper, often about the plight of Hank’s, for weeks.  The local downtown website Borderstan is now covering the issue.  Borderstan prefers that you read their coverage on their site so here is an excerpt and a link:

"Hank's Oyster Bar letter seeking community"

The letter seeking community support from Hank’s Oyster Bar owner Jamie Leeds. (Borderstan)
A local restaurant’s seven-year battle with a group of local residents over “Voluntary Agreements” is causing one area organization to encourage DC Councilmember, Jim Graham (D-Ward 1), to include reform of the District’s alcohol licensing approval process for restaurants and bars in legislation he is currently drafting for Council consideration.
In response to the current deliberations over liquor licensing at Hank’s Oyster Bar, The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) calls on Graham to do away with ad hoc committees when dealing with restaurant operations and licensing agreements.
