Trinidad Market / Mike’s Market, at the corner of Florida and Trinidad Avenues NE, has submitted a request to the Alcohol Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) to obtain a Class A Liquor License. This would allow them to begin selling liquor in addition to beer and wine. The request comes with a change in hours that would allow them to remain open for business from 7 am to midnight each day. The notification from ABRA is below.
The community can be engaged in discussion on an ABRA application request during the review process. A business seeking a change in an existing license or a new license should present as a Single Member District (SMD) meeting of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC), at the larger ANC meeting, and at community meeting, if one is called, to discuss the license request. There can be a protest to stop a license change or to seek a settlement agreement with the community or group with standing to protest the license. You can learn more about ABRA laws and regulations and protest procedures on their website.
As with all development taking place in the neighborhood, we hope that Trinidad residents become involved and active in voicing their views on pending changes.
