Down in the District: No Country for So Many Fancy Grocery Stores
Ever wonder what our neighbors to the south are up to? Here's a cheat sheet.
We know: Montgomery County is the best place to live, work, play, learn and eat. Though, sometimes, we get a yen to peek into the lives of our neighbors to the south. You know, the ones living in that tiny, little place called Washington, DC?
Here's a cheat sheet of what's going on in the District:
- I think it's called a "food rain forest:" Is it possible that parts of DC will soon have too many grocery stores? Maybe. There is a proposed Trader Joe's on U Street that will join Harris Teeter, a Yes! market and tons of other fancy grocery chain stores, plus Giants and Safeways in adjacent neighborhoods.
- John Kerry's and Al Gore's names are all over this...monument to presidential candidates who didn't make it to the top spot. It's going on until Nov. 9 at the Washington Post building.
- Calling all the "DC types" who want to act with Kevin Spacey: Netflix is casting folks who could play young Hill staffers, older politicians and reporters and blue collar Joes and Janes of all ages. A Bel Air, MD, casting happened last weekend, but email a photo to see if you look the part.
- "There's something creepy about eating lunch at a memorial to victims of a famine:" Or, why some people wonder why a bronze wall in memory of Ukranian people that died of famine is being constructed near Union Station.
