Engine Company 12 Pushed To Fall; Sixth & Rye Kosher Deets

BLOOMINGDALE—Oh, the perils of liquor licensing. Over in Bloomingdale, Steven May is having a hard time getting his Engine Company 12 off the ground due to a lack of support from the local ANC and civic associations. Our friends at Curbed DC have a letter from May stating that, "In my opinion it is this type of bureaucratic stagnation that is killing the more rapid revitalization of the Bloomingdale community." The project has been pushed back until at least September. [Curbed DC]

FOOD TRUCKSSixth & Rye, which will roll for the first time next week, announced the particulars of its Kosher certification. The rabbi in charge has also provided certification for Maggie Moo's Ice Cream and Treatery, Cold Stone Creamery, Cinnabon, Mini Melts Ice Cream, and Van Gough Cafe. [EaterWire]

ARLINGTON—And another licensing issue: ARLnow reports that county staffers are recommending against allowing live entertainment at the Westover Market's beer garden. The full vote is tomorrow. [ARLnow]

DUPONT CIRCLE—The City Paper checks in on the Bier Baron to compare it to the Brickskeller, its former incarnation, and sees some "solid signs that the storied drinking destination is well on its way to being remade into something better than before." [WCP]
