The Lo-Down notices that Taavo Somer and Kent Kilroe of Freemans Alley have applied for a liquor license at 8 Rivington Street, former home of the National, and plan to operate a combination retail space and a restaurant. "We are expanding Freemans Sporting Club," Somer's rep tells Grub Street in an e-mail, "and looking at the possibility of having a small classic cocktail bar with snacks on the basement level as a service to retail customers." The team will present its plan at next week's CB3 Manhattan meeting. [TLD]
