[09/22/17]   I am sorry to say that Fresca Tequileria and Local Craft Bar, as brought to you by Andrew and Sean, is no more.

As some of you know, we had ongoing problems with the kitchen from the get go. We always felt like they never really wanted us there and it often felt like they were doing more to work against us than to work with us. The owner never really wanted to or has the time to be involved and instead of backing us, which would have taken a lot more time & effort, has decided to throw in the towel and, I think, is looking to get out.

I rented a UHaul and cleared out all my bar stuff etc late this afternoon and just finished. I am sad because we were really on to something. I really enjoyed meeting all our neighbors and was looking forward to being a great neighborhood place.

I want to offer a great big Thank You! to everyone who came out and supported us. Especially our Neighbors, especially the ones that embraced the Pepper Back! Andrew and I always thought we could do great things together and at the very least I think we achieved proof of concept. Additionally, hopefully, I turned some of you on to a new Tequila or DC based spirit.🙂

Neither of us is sure where we will end up but hopefully we will see at least some of you again.

Cheers, Sean
