Ed. Note: On Saturday night there was a shooting in the 5400 block of Georgia Ave, NW.

From MPD:

“Today at approximately 2:15 AM, an off-duty MPD officer heard multiple people arguing in the rear alley of the 900 block of Ingraham Street, NW. The officer went to investigate when he observed an adult male subject fire a gun at another male in the alley. However, the shots did not take effect. The complainant then jumped into a vehicle and fled the location. The off-duty officer broadcast a lookout for the vehicle and the suspects to other units. The vehicle containing the complainant was stopped in the 5600 block of Georgia Avenue, NW, and the suspect was stopped at 9th & Ingraham Streets, NW. The suspect was found to be in possession of a loaded pistol. An identification procedure was conducted and both the off-duty officer and the complainant positively identified the suspect. The suspect was then placed under arrest for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon (Gun) and Carrying a Pistol Without a License.”

“After months of anticipation, we will finally opened our doors!

One of the main reasons our Beer Director Greg Engert got his start in the craft beer world was Belgian beer. Nine years and a handful of beer-centric bars, restaurants and a brewery later, we’re thrilled to be opening a bistro and bar in the heart of Georgetown that is completely dedicated to the rustic cuisine and fabled brewing culture of Belgium.

Our doors open at 5:30 PM for dinner and our 50 drafts along with cocktails & wine will be flowing with an expansive breadth of selections that illuminate the flavor-driven, craft-brewed complexity that is the trademark of the best Belgian beers.
