I keep forgetting to post this (thanks to all who sent word) but in case you haven’t heard Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe is under new ownership and they’re expanding into the old Willie T’s/Marvelous Market space next door. The Washington Post reports:
The new owner and co-founder of &pizza Steve “Salis is taking over an 800-square-foot space next door, most recently inhabited by Willie T’s Lobster Shack, and creating a children’s book annex that is expected to open next week. He plans to build a new coffee bar, add more events space and beef up the store’s lineup of cookbooks, history and nonfiction.
The renovation will continue over the next 18 months, while the store stays open.”
And hey – a free beer if you buy $50 worth of books through Dec. 31st:
