“Dear PoPville,

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.” Read More
