Thanks to J. for passing on the news from the Washington Business Journal:

Amazon will join Bluestone Lane coffee, Parachute Home bedding/towel company and a Sephora in The Liz.

Amazon Books opened their first brick and mortar in D.C. in Georgetown back in March 2018 though the Coffee Shop element closed last month. Updates as the 14th Street location gets closer to opening.


still pretty impressive!

Thanks to Jordan for sending: “Found this wreath in my apartment building’s recycling dumpster this weekend. Why they thought it was recyclable, I’m not sure.”

Let’s stay alert for a discarded October Christmas Tree please. We can do it, I know we can!

Thanks to Jessica for sending: “Seen in one of the doors at the Liz… Wonder if it’s going to be a storefront for the bedding/towel company?? Seems like a good fit for the spot”

Parachute Home’s website says:

“We believe that when we take care of our home, it takes care of us. That’s why
we make premium quality sheets, towels, robes, rugs and all things soft and wonderful.”

Update from a reader: “The Parachute store at The Liz is expected to open early December.”
