The new owners of beleaguered boite Shaw's Tavern (520 Florida Ave. NW) just announced some big news via Twitter:
"We got it. The liquor license is finally in our hands. We will announce the night time opening date soon. Cheers!"
Shaw's Tavern reopened in February under new owners following a flap over a liquor license. But the place reopened for breakfast and lunch only, closing its doors early each night. Now it looks like it's full steam ahead.
