New sports bar making progress on Irving: Lou's Bar and Grill

The space on Google Streetview, from a few years ago
I've gotten a few notes about construction on a space in the Highland Park building on Irving, next to CommonWealth. This morning I walked by and some guys were working. We chatted briefly about it, and they said it's going to be a sports bar of sorts, with 27 TVs.

Quite awhile ago we heard rumors of a sports bar, then in September there was an update in September that they were hoping for February 2011, and DCMud mentioned it briefly.

Not sure of the time span yet, but if I hear updates, I'll let you know. The windows are covered with brown paper so I couldn't see inside. I would guess February 2011 isn't going to happen, but who knows?

UPDATE: From ANC1B commish Lauren McKenzie, who posted this in the comments: "Their voluntary agreement was just approved at the ANC 1A meeting on Wednesday, and the builders indicated they hoped for a March 2011 opening. There's supposed to be summer garden as well - similar to Commonwealth."

It's owned by the same group that owns Tynan.

I wonder what I would see if I FOIA all email between ANC members, CM Graham, the ABC board and representatives of Donatelli Development over the last 6 months.

Dog crap left all over the place even in little blue bags is more a problem in terms of rats and the yuk factor than a few emails between ANC members, CM Graham, the ABC board and representatives of Donatelli Development will even be.
