Georgetown Fans Bemoan – Rhino Bar to Close

In Closing by RUNINdc

So where will all those Georgetown students and Boston Red Sox fans go this year when the popular Rhino Bar closes.

Owner Britt Swan told the Georgetowner that he was willing to go with a new lease that doubled the rent but the owner of the building at 3295 M St. NW declined due to desire for high-end retail.

“That’s terrible. Been watching the Penn State games there for 8 years. Made a lot of friends there,” said regular Stephen Kacmarik.

“Speechless – going to have to pour one out at Rhino for Rhino on the 28th,” said Michael Lynch.

There will be a big reunion party for all old timers and past and present staff this Sunday, Feb. 22.
