The placard posted outside Brookville for the coming Street Market says:

“A new Retailer’s Class B full service grocery store with a Tasting Permit.”

With hours listed as Sunday through Saturday 7am – 11pm.

Justin notes:

“This is sort of interesting.. Brookville never had a license to sell any sort of alcohol. In fact, 5 years ago the only place to get liquor on the entire block was Cleveland Park Wine & Spirits, and now there are no less than 4 places (Weygandt, Yes!, Walgreens.)”

Ed. Note: Yes! and Walgreens also sell beer and wine, not spirits.

A few weeks ago, GDoN-R looked at the mega high end of the DC real estate market. Those were properties over $5 Million and represent less than 1% of total settled sales.

Of the nearly 150,000 real estate transactions in the District of Columbia in 2017, the $2-$3 Million market also represents a small (still less than 1%) percentage of the overall market. (more…)
