Via the Dupont Current, perhaps the city’s most web-unfriendly paper, comes a nice tidbit on the popular P Street Whole Foods Market. For the past eight months, reports the community paper, this grocery has sold brewski singles “without major conflict.” And so the Logan Circle advisory neighborhood commission has voted to allow this often-scandalous practice to continue. Even though the Barrel House, right around the corner, isn’t allow to do the same thing—this 14th Street institution can’t sell singles of beer or ale up to 40 ounces, says the Current.
Never before have I seen such yuppie favoritism. Barrel House, you guys should flood the next ANC meeting, as well as the next ABC meeting, and hit up the D.C. Council while you’re at it. Get on the phone with Jack. If that doesn’t work, block Fenty’s SUV with a bunch of kegs. Preferably Heineken kegs.
