    Any idea what club Chief Lanier is going to temporarily shut down because of this?

      Indulj is in the 1200 block. What’s bringing you to this bet?

      • Kevin

        I think we already know why Mike is saying Indulj (ignoring the fact the this incident took place on the 2000 block of 14th Street and not the 1200 block of U Street — 2 blocks away).

          i don’t know what he means. can you explain?

            Indulj tends to have a majority-black clientele. Mike was being coded racist.

    When I passed through there last night, there was an enormous crowd right where the pin is located on that map, in front of the Reeves Center. It was hard to tell what was going on.

    There has been a brass band in front of the Reeves center lately. The crowd you saw was probably gathered to watch.

    It was across 14th from the Reeves Center. I drove by right when multiple cop cars where arriving.

    Guy stabbed was Slim Charles. Maybe Omar was comin’.

    • Anwan Glover was at Cafe Asia down near Farragut, so not him.

      • I just read that, too. Never heard of Cafe Asia. Was he stabbed at a sushi bar?

    Usually a few cops standing here on the weekends. But always a ton if people flooding into the streets.

    It would be fun to make a chart of all the clubs in town with the genres of music they play and the violent incident rate. I say this as a nightlife professional.

    Sounds like Red Lounge to me. Awful place. Right next to the liquor store. Have no idea how this place can stay in business.

      NBC4 is also saying the lounge in question was Red Lounge.

        Honestly I don’t understand how Red Lounge can afford to stay open….

    I remember being at an ANC meeting a few years ago when they were approving all of the alcohol licenses. The Commissioners and businesses said that U street would never be like Adams Morgan. U street was too upscale for that to happen. I am sorry to hear that they are being proven wrong.

      ANC’s dont approve or deny liqour license applications – they make recommendations to ABRA that are afforded “great weight.” but yeah.. U Street is turning into AdMo.

    I still don’t understand what club is was. Across from the reeves center is Marvin and Lost Society and The Gibson. Was it one of those?
