Great news for Shaw residents NOT partying tonight!

Just in case you missed it - Shaw Deserves Better, and just this one weekend, Shaw is going to get the peace the neighborhood deserves! 

Mimi (Abeba) Beyene, owner of the Mood Lounge, said this this to DCist:
Abeba Beyene, who owns Mood Lounge, said she doesn't know anything about the stabbing and that her establishment has nothing to do with what happened Friday morning. She told DCist she was tending bar and closed up about 12:30 a.m. Though the lounge is usually open only on Fridays and Saturdays, she does open it for special events some weekdays. There were 50 to 60 people in the 300-person capacity space last night, she noted.
"I don't see a reason why we should close," she said.
Beyene also says that the incident endemic to the neighborhood than attributable to the lounge.
"This area, someone's always getting jumped," she said. "It's happened to me. This is common for this street. You can't walk even during the day. This is the most dangerous area."
Well perhaps if Ms. Beyene feels that Shaw is so dangerous, she should relocate her club to a nice safe area. I'm sure the residents of Palisades or American University Park would love to welcome her nightclub and the thumping bass, patrons urinating on their homes, patrons vandalizing property, and stabbing people and leaving blood all over their sidewalks. Better yet, perhaps she can buy the house next door to hers out in the suburbs and re-open the Mood Lounge there. If she's her own neighbor, she won't have to worry about neighbors complaining...
