El West has been around since 1995 – this better be a real renovation and not a “Renovation”.

Thanks to Stuart for first alerting us last night: “After 18 months, the Mt. Vernon Square Carnegie Library renovation is finishing. The Apple Store logo went up tonight.”
From Apple this morning:
“Today Apple announced the grand opening of Apple Carnegie Library on Saturday, May 11 at 10 am, alongside the new DC History Center.
To celebrate the opening Apple also announced a six week StoryMaker Festival with 40 local DC creatives from May 18 – June 29. The festival includes a performance during kickoff weekend from DC rapper GoldLink and wraps up with a block party celebration with No Kings Collective.” (more…)

“I went to Panino Gourmet Sunday and all of the pumps/fill-up areas at the Valero were ripped out of the ground and were gone; some temporary fencing was erected where they had been. Fearing for the future of Panino I asked if they knew what was going on and they conveyed the message that the building would probably be torn down soon and with it Panino. Sad news that I hope somehow isn’t true.” (more…)
I live near the Rhode Island Metro and have been excited to see the ongoing development of some parts of Edgewood/Brookland/Brentwood while at the same time retaining some of the original neighborhood feel. As the Rhode Island stop has developed, there have been some noticeable absences – to me – in my year plus of living here. This includes a nicer wine store that comes without the security-intensive wine store. Don’t get me wrong, Wardman Wines in Brookland proper is great but is walkable on weekends only. So I’ve been watching with delight as a wine/liquor store developed in the RI live/work area by the station.
Yesterday I noticed people inside the new Exotic Wine and Liquors store. Went inside and was able to view and buy though official launch appears to be this weekend.” (more…)

“This is sitting right inside the door of the old Yangs in Eckington. It says “Alessio’s Corner Market”
Back in December Eckington was gutted to learn that the super popular Yang Market would be closing after two years.
Updates on Alessio’s as we learn more/they get closer to opening.
