Know you’ve been following the Republic Cantina developments, and previewed the Hanover Civic Association meeting on Saturday. Wanted to give you a follow-up. One of the opponents of the restaurant presented and it was interesting to say the least. His “smoking gun” was this slide from the start of his deck revealing how the company’s Spanish name proves…something? I guess this Trojan Caballo plot is foiled now?
For his part, Chris from Republic Cantina had just presented and gone over how this really is a full-day restaurant concept — not just a bar– including a heavy morning focus on coffee and pastries.
At the end of the meeting, the vote in favor of protesting was unanimous, but it’s worth noting that there were supporters from the neighborhood in attendance who weren’t allowed to vote because new members weren’t accepted last week. They are supposed to be allowed for the next meeting October 18th, so should be interesting to see how things change then.”
