    I will never argue with another Potbelly. Gotta say though, adding possessives to names that are not possessive is a pet peeve of mine. Potbelly, not Potbelly’s; Taylor, not Taylor’s.

    • Oh Lord. “Potbelly’s” is a common contraction of the name “Potbelly Sandwich Works”. The apostrophe is a dead give away.

      • nah!

        So glad I’m not the only one, prognostication.

        And no, 2b3s, the apostrophe is not a dead give away. The apostrophe makes it appear as though the sandwiches belong to the stove.

        • I think Prince of Petworth’s does it just to drive grammarians like you (and me) crazy!

          • Chocanon

            Of course he does! You’re giving him major chuckles right on schedule.

      • Um, no. That explanation is bogus.

        • ah

          It also wouldn’t explain this common, but incorrect, formulation of numerous restaurant names given an extraneous apostrophe-s by some speakers.

    Thank god. We need more lunch options here in the West End.

    Deja Vu all over again. Check out the discussion from the last time PoP posted a Potbelly opening.

    because having a potbelly at both L & 19th AND M & new hampshire doesn’t seem redundant in the slightest šŸ˜›

  • A Potbelly opened at The Yards (Navy Yard) today, I think. Something to note when hungry by the Park.

  • eric_in_ledroit

    Yay – can’t wait for more Potbellys’ in the neighborhood!!
