XII failed to appear for ABRA roll call vote. Lic cancelled. ABRA rejected request for reinstatement. XII must apply as new license. #HStDC

@HStreetDC_ reports that XII (1123 H Street) failed to send a representative to an ABRA roll call vote, and ABRA refused to let it go. It sounds like they must start from scratch with the application process. This is not great news for an operating club/bar/restaurant. That's particularly the case when you consider that XII doesn't exactly have a warm & fuzzy relationship with some of its neighbors. Their website lists some events happening this week, and they remain fully open. I'm told that XII can continue to serve alcoholic beverages while seeking a whole new license (or possibly a renewal license).
