  • What is it about Sunday night clubs and violence? Who goes out to party all night on Sunday anyway, thugs?

    • Aaaaaaand this morning’s prize goes to the commenter above for answering their own question. Congratulations!

    • I thought he was asking us, and calling us thugs at the same time, based on the punctuation. I do feel somewhat thuggish today.

    NBC 4 is reporting that the victim has died – was expected to survive.

  • This place is a menace and I hope it gets shut down over this

    • @Anonymous2:54 – a liquor license in DC is like a Supreme Court appointment – it’s pretty much guaranteed for life. ABRA won’t revoke a liquor license over just one or two dead patrons and a couple dozen fistfights. It would take at LEAST five fatalities to get ABRA to take your license away. The owners of this place should be just fine – they’ll live to serve another soon-to-be-murdered patron, don’t you worry!
