Not sure how to process this one but I played squash I’d be pretty psyched. Previously we learned:

“This fall EastBanc will break ground on Squash on Fire — a $12 million, state-of-the-art, 20,000-square-foot indoor squash facility as an integral piece of the $200 million West End Library and Fire Station mixed-use residential project. When completed, Squash on Fire will include eight courts and a full-service restaurant situated atop of the newly renovated fire station.”

A reader reports:

“I thought you might like to know that Landmark Theatres has leased the former West End Cinema space and that they plan to reopen the theater on July 17. They have a sign on the window of the cinema and they are currently hiring new staff (they placed on ad in craigslist).”

Thanks to a reader for sending the update on the Panera to go at 20th and L St, NW:

“The new Panera “to go” opened yesterday on 20th between L & M. iPads for ordering, you can still go to the cashiers. No seating, all “order and go”. Interesting alphabetically-grouped cubbies where your bag is delivered by first name. Mostly smooth operation and knowledgable staff.”



A reader tweets us:

“Ooh, CVS at 23rd and M is an imminent health hazard. Wonder what happened. @PoPville”

Another reader reports:

“Thought this was interesting- I’ve been to both the CVS next to the SweetGreen on M St in West End and on L St by 20th St. NW in the past two days, and both had signs up and all their food items blocked off- just like Target did a couple of weeks ago. I’m pretty grossed out that even major retailers can’t seem to get their acts together and keep the critters away…ew.”
