Waid Sainvil, owner of Waid's Hatian Cuisine and Lounge
The Washington State Liquor Control Board announced its "intent not to renew" the liquor license for Waid's Haitian Cuisine and Lounge, according to Central District News. The decision comes following a letter the board received from the city citing issues of underage drinking and violence at the bar. Loyal customers have organized an online petition supporting Waid's and the decision isn't final - but the odds of its reversal look slim.
