Well, word from Neil Emmons, city planning commissioner for District 14, is that the room's application has been unanimously recommended for approval by the commission--just as had been the case a few weeks earlier when Trees started going through the same re-opening process--assuming the venue's operators agree to the stipluation, put up by the commission, that there will be no amplified, outdoor music on the property. Which seems fair enough.
