Community Board 3 just released its SLA subcommittee agenda for November. But mark two dates on your calendar. The big difference next month is that the list of 33 (!) applicants is now split between back-to-back nights. It’s a move that mirrors what CB2 has been doing for awhile.

Other notes:

  • Whynot Cafe is returning, but applying for a wine/beer as advised by CB3 earlier this month.
  • JMDR scratched last month, but is still gunning for the former Motor City Bar space.
  • Rockwood Music Hall wants to alter its license to include a bar and music in the basement.
