Right Proper Brewing should have no trouble with its immediate neighbor, the Howard Theatre, with which it does many cross promotions.
The establishment also got the endorsement of the LeDroit Park Civic Association.
Commissioner Jeremy Leffler (district 02) checked to make sure Right Proper was willing to consent to the ANC's standard closing time for outdoor spaces of liquor-serving establishments, which is 11pm Monday-Thursday and midnight Saturday and Sunday. Cheston agreed with the hours.
"I believe in the old saying 'Nothing good in a bar happens after midnight'," Cheston said.
Commissioner E. Gail Anderson Holness (district 11) asked Cheston where he was from. Cheston said he graduated from Georgetown University. He had lived elsewhere, he continued, but he was born in DC.
"Native Washingtonian? We support you," Holness said.
The motion by Holness to support the application was approved by all the Commissioners present.
The application now moves for final approval to the District Department of Transportation (DDOT), which has authority over all public space applications.
