Bardo, the massive brew pub coming to 1200-1216 Bladensburg Road, has a liquor license and is moving ahead with plans to open, but they need more money to do it. That's where you come in. They have started a campaign on indiegogo to raise money. You contribute a specified amount, and can claim one of the cool rewards they have on offer.
From the indigogo site:
Construction is slated to start in December 2012. Plans for the bar include self serve taps, 500 outdoor seats, a funky building made from shipping containers, and the biggest brewery in the DC area. Bardo Rodeo operated in the 90's as the largest brewpub in the country. The 22000 sq. ft. facility included 900 indoor & 700 outdoor seats and a 25-barrel brewhouse. As one of the first bars in the Clarendon neighborhood in Arlington VA, Bardo brewed 4000 kegs a year and enjoyed thousands of visitors each weekend. Indigogo provides the opportunity for Bardo to raise money to fund the project.
Right now the goal is to raise $110,000, but if they can raise enough money they'd also like to start distilling their own spirits. Pretty cool, no?
