Whoa – massive update on that Wawa coming to Columbia Heights. A commenter wrote in the original post:

I just spoke with my friend who work at pizza place next to five guys Columbia height metro station. His workplace along with other store there (five guys, potbelly, etc) will soon close and replaced by wawa.(more…)

OK a couple weeks ago I mentioned I was sitting on some sweet Wawa scuttlebutt when we spoke about the possibility of a Wawa taking over the old Zoup space downtown. As I said at that time, I was only giving that scuttlebutt a 50/50 chance. However, this one is rock solid. Ed. Note: There is always a +/- 3% chance of something happening last minute. But I feel very good about this one. Updates and details on location when it’s locked in 100%.

L Street, NW between 14th and 15th.

I hadn’t realized Zoup closed?!?! I always liked their name. Apparently they closed months ago. Anyway, a tipster here’s a Wawa could be taking over the space. I’ll give this 50/50 odds but certainly seems possible. For those not familiar with Wawa, they have a tremendous Slim Jim selection however they do not sell gas at their 19th Street location.

I’m also sitting on another big Wawa report but waiting for it to be finalized. Stay tuned on both fronts.

Ah performance art… Well since I’ve already typed out the title and am a semi practicing member of the tribe – from an email:

“Combining both of your favorites under one 9,200 square foot roof (the world’s largest Wawa®!), while there may not be any matches, wine or challah,​​ there will be LED candles, carbonated Grape Juice, and Soft Pretzels. We’ll also be reciting all of the Shabbat blessings, so please BYOY. Wawa® doesn’t sell them (Yarmulkes) yet.

Many people consider Wawa® a sacred institution, and Jews wo​​rldwide certainly consider Shabbat to be one as well. So let’s gather ’round the communal table of the first D.C. location (​​Store #6001), and celebrate with all true Wawa® fans at this ​​Shabbat of convenience.
​​
This is the world’s first ​​Wawa® Shabbawa​. (more…)

Danielle wrote yesterday:

“I’ve sent an email to Wawa about their oversight of the DC store in their free coffee promotion for all mid-Atlantic stores (MD and VA are included!)”

And a few hours later:

“I have heard back and Wawa has corrected this issue! Their response is below:

Have no fear… DC is definitely included in the free coffee celebration on Sunday! It was a mistake leaving it out of the release and I’ve updated and replaced it. thank you for reaching out and enjoy the big game!”

So props to Danielle, and props to Wawa for the quick fix!!

Operatives on the ground tell me – free coffee for the first 3 days and special gifts for police officers and firefighters.

And just how excited are folks:

“Some interesting details from my coworker who got in line at 7am to be one of the first 100 people to get a $50 wawa gift cards:

-People broke into wawa chants
-People broke into Eagles chants
-There was a NYE style countdown for the 8am opening
-The staff lined up in a receiving line to high-five all the guests as they came in the store
-There is a string quartet inside wawa
-At 10am, the police and firefighters will have a contest to see who makes the best hoagie.”

The line to get in at 8am:
