“a candy store (I think the same one as in Chinatown Ed. Note: similar looking but not the same folks) appears to be coming to Union Station, in the same space where the Papyrus used to be. (Papyrus recently moved to a different space in another part of Union Station.)”

Sugar Factory’s facebook page says:

“Sugar Factory has made confections part of popular culture and has turned sweets into the latest designer accessory. Best known for its signature Couture Pops, iconic superstars including Britney Spears, Drake, Nicole Scherzinger, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Carmen Electra and Rupert Grint are just a few of the celebrities who have either endorsed or have been spotted with the sparkly lollipops. The celebrity affiliations have made Couture Pops an international phenomenon with widespread media attention from The Today Show, Daily Mail, AOL, Good Morning America, People, Extra and more.

Colorful candy bins line the walls and walkways of the retail stores, where stylish retail for all ages hang from walls and racks. Signature candies such as fudge-covered pretzel sticks, milk chocolate-covered Oreos and Rice Krispies Treats® coated with frosting appeal to the most discerning sweet tooth. Freshly made gelato available in an array of flavors cool off and delight guests. Framed photographs of celebrities holding various Couture Pops hang high from the walls, making Sugar Factory more than just a retail store; it’s also a popular spot for sightseeing.”

District Cuisine found out all the details on the new temporary beer garden coming to NoMa this Spring:

“Business partners, including the owner of L’Enfant Cafe in Adams Morgan, are planning a hybrid beer garden and park that will cater to guests of all ages (and will likely allow dogs as well).”

They also note there will be 2-3 food trucks rotating in the space as well as “High end portable restrooms”…

Looking forward to seeing how this space turns out.

Thanks to a reader for updating us on the Walgreens coming to Union Station:

“I spoke with an employee of Union Station this morning. He confirmed that the Walgreens will be located in the back of the food court, as discussed below. It’s not scheduled to open for 10 months, however! The other construction going on in the Union Station food court is mostly to create as-yet-unrented retail spaces. He confirmed that a Dunkin Donuts was originally supposed to go in by the Bojangles, but that those papers have not yet been signed. He also said that another Chipotle would be opening in the food court, even though there’s already a Chipotle on the first floor of Union Station. He speculated that the reason Chipotle would want to open two restaurants in the same building is that the original Chipotle is hugely busy and has consistently long lines.”
