Wisconsin Avenue restaurant and nightclub Third Edition was shut down temporarily for a liquor license infraction from Aug. 8 to 10 after a meticulous six-month investigation by the city. At press time, the doors were shuttered and chairs stowed with ABRA notification placards posted in the windows.
According to ABRA community resource officer Cynthia Simms, the popular restaurant, which draws substantial crowds to its upstairs dance floor in the evenings, received the three-day suspension following multiple violations of its security plan and voluntary agreement after a felony assault occurred on the property in February. The owners were also ordered to pay a fine of $1750.
Representatives from Capital Restaurant Concepts, the owner of Third Edition, did not return phone calls for comment.
