This morning EV Grieve reports the new owner of Aces & Eights is organizing a meeting with interested neighbors next week, in advance of his appearance before Community Board 3 November 15th.
Jevan Damadian has posted a notice on the door of 34 Avenue A, inviting residents to discuss plans for the bar next Wednesday night. In September, we had a story about the establishment’s struggles with the State Liquor Authority and other agencies. After being shuttered, the bar re-opened briefly and then abruptly closed again late last month.
Yesterday, we spoke with Damadian, who describes a truly bizarre chain of events that have forced him to make the best of a bad situation. The Lo-Down’s Jennifer Strom will have Damadian’s account later today.
