* BARDO RIVERFRONT, AGAIN: Last week a new "placard" was posted for an alcoholic beverage license application for Bardo Riverfront, the proposed combination outdoor brew pub and family-friendly riverfront park at Florida Rock.
This is Bardo's second attempt at the ABC process for this site (the first placard having been rescinded just a few weeks after a filing in August), and is now technically the fourth time that the notion of a large outdoor activity/party/drinking/whatever space has been attempted at this spot across from Nats Park.
This application is for a Retailer's Class D Tavern license (as opposed to a Class C Tavern license last time), and is described thusly: "Outdoor Beer Garden. Beer made on premise. Food Trucks to supply food. Total number of Summer Garden seats: 700. Total Occupancy Load: 750. Brew Pub Endorsement."
As to why Bardo's application earlier in 2015 never made it all the way through after being announced back in March, one might want to read this transcript from the April hearing at the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to see the many (many) concerns raised by the board and by MPD, which clearly is not supportive of any venture of this type in this location. (And I can't not highlight the comments from Commander Jeff Brown of MPD about how the "applicant here says it's going to be cornhole bean-bag toss, which I'm not even going to pretend to know what that is, but I think I'll be safe to say that it's not very popular.")
* DOCK 79 FLOOR PLANS: While the potential Bardo Riverfront footprint is on the western, later-phase portion of the Florida Rock site, construction is progressing on Dock 79, the 320ish-unit residential building at the east end of the property (seen above from across the Anacostia River at Poplar Point). The project's web site and Facebook/Twitter accounts having been active for a while, and there are now virtual tours available of studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom units, as well as the roof.
* JUST BECAUSE: Like that photo up top? Here's the same spot, more than 10 years ago.

Wow, I can't believe I read that entire transcript. Eye-opening, to say the least.

I hope nobody tells Commander Brown about the Friday Night Concert series in Yards Park! All those people openly drinking alcohol right next to the river, and there isn't even an eight-foot fence for them to climb over. I'm sure MPD would shut it down right away before dozens of rowdy drunks jump into the river and drown. It's inevitable, you know.

Ampersand, you may have just jinxed it! I hope the Yards Park concerts can continue as they have, but don't you think that unfortunate offshoot of their increasing popularity (not to mention the progress on the projects in the immediate vicinity) likely will mean a little more restriction on the crowds and what they can bring to the venue? It's only a matter of time until we have a "this is why we can't have nice things" moment.

WRT bean bag toss: Commander Brown needs to get out more and back off on the implied insults.


Ampersand says: (10/21/15 12:50 PM)
Conngs0 - I hope I didn't jinx it! I was just flabbergasted by the idea that being next to a river would, in the Commander's mind, forestall any kind of alcohol consumption. Especially when it already happens in so many places! Is the Commander unfamiliar with the "party boats" that take people out for drinking cruises on the Potomac? Or the restaurants with patios along the Georgetown waterfront?

I don't really care at all about Bardo, but this sort of public meeting raises my hackles.

In other news, the U-shaped residential building at 1244 South Capitol (where the Hill Country pop-up popped up) got its shoring/sheeting/excavation permit yesterday. link

While Commander Brown seems to be concerned mostly with things that will probably be non-issues, I can't wait to see how Dock 79 residents like living next to that beergarden/junkyard, especially the units directly facing it. The Fairgrounds already gets its fair share of noise complaints from neighborhood residents, and there are no residential buildings directly adjacent to it. It probably won't take too many complaints before the Dock 79 owners (who also own the beergarden land) decide it's not worth the hassle and discontinue it.
