Community Board meeting
We went to the "community" board "meeting" last night and were pleasantly surprised. We had been prepared for a big official affair, but it was hardly that. It consisted of Jon and I standing next to a locked door in the Brooklyn Hospital for forty-five minutes, until two old ladies came up, found the door locked as well, and got someone to unlock it. These two nice ladies were the community board committee. (Apparently, due to sickness/other engagements, only two of the four committee members were there.) We told them about our bar, they asked a few questions (whether we would have outdoor seating, soundproofing, whether we would serve Hennessy). We gave them all our documentation (thanks to all the people who wrote letters!), they said our bar sounded nice, and that was it. I think we'll have their support, which is a big step towards getting our liquor license.
