Turns out the Globe folks also want to build a banquet hall across the street at 40500 Albrae, which is off of Stevenson Boulevard, just south of I-880.
The 19,000-square-foot hall would be available from 7 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. At nighttime it could be rented out for parties, weddings, bar mitzvahs and the like. Their application, which is still incomplete, doesn’t specify how many party-goers would be allowed inside the building, which will be a refurbished furniture store, or whether they want a liquor license.
Meanwhile former Argus reporter Barry Shatzman, who rumor has it was bar mitzvahed at the 1975 Maryland Atheist Society convention, has a story out today about the Globe’s nightclub effort. It covers a lot of the same ground as my old stories, but it does a better job of giving the perspective of the prospective night club operator, or at least her attorney. To read it click here.
The club will be seeking a use permit at next week’s planning commission meeting.
