New bar may open in Thirsty Turtle space

By Washington Post editors

The now-defunct Thirsty Turtle bar in College Park could soon be replaced, and city officials hope its proposed replacement won't prove as problematic as its predecessors, the Gazette reports.

John McManus, owner of the Barking Dog in Bethesda, has expressed interest in opening a second location at 7416 Baltimore Ave. in College Park, formerly home to Thirsty Turtle. McManus is scheduled to go before the Prince George's County Board of License Commissioners on Feb. 22 to request a liquor license for the property.

The Thirsty Turtle closed after losing its license following an October stabbing on the sidewalk near the bar.
