MOVA Is Moving ... Hopefully To Oblivion

D.C. gay bar MOVA, formerly known as Halo, is planning to move to a new but undetermined location in D.C., according to owner Babak Movahedi.
Mr. Movahedi says that the rent is too high and the landlord has refused to renegotiate a new deal. The landlord, David Lett, counters that "Movahedi’s assertion that he declined to enter into discussions over a possible change in the lease" is total bunk. According to Mr. Lett, "Movahedi violated the lease when he failed to pay the property tax on the building, which was a requirement of the lease". Having known both men in capacity enough to judge their character, I'm inclined to believe Mr. Lett's word.
