As reported by Off Seventh, the protest group led by Campbell Johnson (a non-resident of Shaw, head of the Urban Housing Alliance, and member of the choir at Shiloh Baptist Church), and Queen of Sheba have been tasked by the ABRA with negotiating the terms of QoS's liquor license. If QoS and the protest group are unsuccessful at reaching an agreement, the ABRA will decide the issue on July 13.
This is not an uncommon path to obtaining a liquor license, so all hope is not lost for Queen of Sheba. Regardless, every month without a license puts a financial strain on this great restaurant in Shaw. Show your support for Queen of Sheba by stopping by for a meal (or two or three), or at very least a delicious smoothie, this weekend.
