5300 Wisconsin Ave, NW

Ed. Note: Another Carpe Librum opened in Union Station back in April.

“Dear PoPville,

I’ve been really bummed about Carpe Librum’s Farragut location closing, so you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across a new location in the Mazza Gallerie last night! The man working there told me they’d been open for a few weeks and are planning on making it a permanent location. Their posted hours are Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-7pm, and Sun noon-6pm. They told me they are always accepting book donations during business hours! (more…)

Thanks to SinSA for sending:

“I was walking down Wisconsin Avenue earlier, and it looks like they’re making a storefront for Commander Salamander in Georgetown. I know that Wonder Woman is filming in this area, so it probably is for the movie.”

Commander Salamander was located at 1420 Wisconsin Ave, NW and is now an M&T Bank.

“Dear PoPville,

Any update on ice cream for Mount Pleasant?”

Mount Desert Island Ice Cream Artisanal small-batch ice cream thoughtfully sourced with forward-thinking flavors. In Bar Harbor & Portland, Maine, coming soon to Washington DC.

From Mount Desert Island Ice Cream via email:

“We just passed our health inspection yesterday so we just started making all the cream today. It is likely we’ll be ready to open our doors sometime the week of the 25th.”

Stay tuned for an exact opening date when we get one.

Thanks to Lila for passing on this very sad retail news:

“Beadazzled Dupont Circle closing June 23

We are very sad to be closing Beadazzled in DC. It was our first store, my baby, built with sweat equity and funded by bead sales from my home over the summer of 1989. For 29 years our amazing team has loved you, and we’ve been grateful to be loved by you. We’ve watched 10-year-old customers, and some of our teen-aged summer staffers grow up to bring their own children into Beadazzled. You’ve helped us through good times and bad, and we hope we’ve done the same for you. (more…)
