Washington, DC


A reader reports:

“Dacha posted two signs stating that their liquor license has been suspended from November 23 to November 29. All the picnic tables have been removed.

I wonder whether it relates to Dacha’s recent troubles with ABRA, or maybe their new grocery store?

The notices themselves don’t explain the reason for the suspension besides boilerplate about noncompliance with Title 25 of DC Code or Title 23 of the Municipal Regulations, both of which deal with alcohol. And the ABRA Board website hasn’t yet posted any orders addressing this particular suspension. What do you think?”

The Washington Blade reports:

“The D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control Board on Nov. 4 issued a $42,500 fine and a 21-day license suspension…The ABC Board was expected to allow Dacha to stagger its suspension period over multiple dates between now and next spring so that it won’t have to close continuously for 21 consecutive days.”
