“I am a member of Phillips Collection but yesterday when I went for a quick afternoon glimpse of the excellent “Luncheon of the Boating Party” I was alerted to the fact that the gallery is free right now for everyone. This is because they are in the process of exchanging out the 3rd floor exhibit. I think entrance is usually $15ish so this is a nice perk. Thought you might like to share it out with readers!”
Ed. Note: Phillips says they’ll be free until the next exhibit (except for weekends) on Sept. 27th

Back in July we passed on some scuttlebutt about a Mrs. Greens Natural Food Store taking over the Books A Million off Dupont Circle. Thanks to a reader for sending word of the not so good news for Mrs. Green’s from Patch Fairfax:
“Mrs. Green’s will be closing its store in Fairfax on Sept. 13, according to a company employee; the store opened in January.
It also appears as though Vienna’s long wait to replace Magruders will continue. The hoped-for Mrs. Green’s Natural Market will not be opening a store in the location, at 180 Maple Ave. W, as was planned, according to a company employee.”
In the meantime, Books A Million remains open.
