baraki meeting thursday at 7 pm

someone is distributing notices for a meeting to discuss the liquor license for baraki, the restaurant that will hopefully be opening at 1st, t, and rhode island ave. nw in the near future.

there is nothing on the flier that identifies the group that's calling this meeting, and they are only canvassing the unit block of t street, the unit block of seaton, and the stretch of 1st street that connects the two. i live on the west side of 1st street, and i did not receive one of these notices in my mailbox. the flier also doesn't mention if the owner has been invited.

anyway, i'm including the information below. (note that the flier lists an impossible address for st. martin's. the church is actually at t and north capitol.) i would encourage anyone from bloomingdale who wants to know what is going to happen with this restaurant to show up. i intend to be there.

Thanks you two for the gift certificate! I know its cryptic, but think Shaw.

I am planning on running the story on Baraki tomorrow. I would love to speak with you for a moment about the establishment. Please email me as soon as possible.

I couldn't make the meeting Thursday - what was it about/ how did it go?

Hope the meeting went well, and that Aleks and Co. can get Baraki opening soon. Veranda is a lovely neighborhood space, and I've no doubt that Baraki will be a great (and much-needed) addition to Bloomingdale.
