Last week I shared some scuttlebutt about Amsterdam Falafel potentially coming to the House of Kabob space on M Street when they close in October. While nothing is in stone I am happy to say that Amsterdam Falafel confirms that they are looking at that space. They’d also be interested in your feedback for those that work, live in the neighborhood – if they do take over the space would you like to see them have daytime and nighttime hours?

A reader reports:

“I was walking on my way home this evening and was shocked to see the building had been emptied out at 1627 Conn Ave. I think it’s the last independent stores to close on that block?”

Oh dang, I loved this place! I called Mr. Taylor who said he closed last week but will still be selling his photographs at festivals and on his website.
