Several people attending tonight's CB3/SLA meeting sent along an update ... BAD Burger (Breakfast All Day), the 24-diner that opened in November at 171 Avenue A, was on the agenda for a beer and wine license. The restaurant's opening announcement noted that the restaurant would "eventually serve Craft Beer and a Sommelier-honed Wine List."
Owner Keith Masco, according to those in attendance, was looking for the OK to serve beer-wine until 4 a.m. seven days a week, including in BAD's backyard. For their part, committee members offered the alcohol until midnight, though not in the backyard.
Masco then reportedly said, "Just deny it, just deny it," and walked out of the meeting.
There's plenty of history between Masco and the CB3. You can read that here. In an email to us in October 2010, Masco called CB3 members "communists."
