Jack's Boathouse has lost its lease on its Georgetown waterfront property, according to The Georgetowner. The Georgetown fixture must vacate the property by Jan. 31.

The National Park Service is in the process of evaluating uses for a non-motorized boathouse zone for the waterfront area. The NPS waterfront area spans from 34th Street to about 1,200 feet upstream of the Key Bridge.

This is total crap. Jack's brings in more business to Georgetown's waterfront than that entire mall does. They are an icon of the river. They've been nothing but great for the city. In contrast, the NPS has done nothing for the waterfront but park their trucks on it. It wouldn't surprise me if they are cancelling this lease in order to use the lot as a storage area for their lawnmowers. They are that clueless.
