Guy on bike throws bricks through Room 11, Meridian Pint windows, with camera footage

Continuing the bad news over the weekend, at about 2:30 am Friday morning some guy on a bike threw bricks through the windows of Room 11 and Meridian Pint. Apparently this douchebag hates popular neighborhood bars. No one was hurt, and apparently the guy was chased for a bit but wasn't caught. Staff were still in both places cleaning up when it happened.

DCist sources says it was a white guy in black clothing and a mask. I wonder why someone would do this? Maybe the moron is an anarchist? Or somehow anti-gentrification or anti-bar? Either way, he's a dumbshit.

Below is the security camera footage from Room 11 Meridian Pint. If you recognize the guy or the bike, please call the police.

Is that Room 11 or Meridian Pint looking North on 11th?

Not being snarky here, but why do security cameras capture in such poor quality? Memory is cheap enough now adays that small businesses should be able to afford capturing footage that looks better than an animated gif or late 90s webcam.

At least they had a security camera though. Good reminder for local businesses: BUY A SECURITY CAMERA!

The security camera is at Meridian Pint, thanks anon.

Being a local resident and fellow brewer / beer enthusiast, I love the fact that Meridian Pint opened up here... even though I don't go very often.

I think they should take this opportunity to up the ante and put bullet proof glass or tougher plexiglass that could withstand that - the frustration of the brick thrower would have been hilarious to watch. Hope the A-hole gets caught.
