Could a Comfort One be coming? Stay tuned!!

Thanks to John for sending word:

“The “Soviet” CVS store south of Dupont Circle on 19th St (next to Panera, not the one on the circle itself) has officially closed.

It’s not really a surprise seeing as it was a block from the other one and was always poorly stocked, but nonetheless another storefront in Dupont is now vacant.”

This is the CVS that used to the movie theater – what was the name of that movie theater?


Holy moly. Thanks to Dan for sending the shot above: “an awning blew off a roof somewhere, landed here on 20TH and O ST NW. Debris everywhere, hit the white SUV across the street. Looks like it smashed the windows of the vacant Ping Pong Dim Sum as well.”

Jonathan Padget snaps the photo below and writes: “Apparently Bristol House lost a rooftop structure. Old Ping Pong Dim Sum damaged, along with vehicle nearby.”

From a press release:

“DGS Delicatessen and Colony Club are joining forces to bring DuPont Circle top-notch coffee and bagels. Sadie’s will operate out of the DGS sandwich counter from 7am-11am, Monday-Friday, so you can grab a latte and breakfast before DGS opens its doors for lunch.

Sadie’s Weekdays, a collaboration between cousins and friends, is a nod to the classic New York bagel shop, with an emphasis on quality ingredients and preparation. Expect to see a bagel with soft scrambled egg, cheddar cheese, and crispy DGS pastrami. The bagels are coming from DC’s own Bullfrog Bagels. Colony Club’s baristas will be behind the counter, brewing Ceremony Coffee (Annapolis, MD) and pulling shots of Tandem Coffee (Portland, ME).

The Sadie’s team is looking forward to improving your mornings in a big way starting Monday, January 30th.”
