“what is happening at Glover park whole foods!? Are we getting a beer mecca like H st??”
About a month ago the Glover Park Whole Foods briefly closed after being cited for food safety violations by the Department of Health. Other readers have reported the store has been closed since Monday. And as of this morning, Jamie updates us “still closed”
I’ve emailed Whole Foods for an update. Stay tuned.

Thanks to all who emailed the Washington Business Journal story “Trader Joe’s in talks to open in north Georgetown”.

By the by – here’s how the Eastern Market (old Hine School) location is looking:

“The Glover Park Whole Foods, 2323 Wisconsin Ave NW, has been shut down until further notice by the Department of Health. I failed to snap a picture of the red poster notification, but “imminent health hazard(s)” was noted.”

I love mysteries like this – for the past week or so I’ve been getting numerous tweets and emails from Adams Morgan, Woodley Park and now Glover Park asking:
“Wondering if anyone else heard the national anthem this morning. I walked out of my building (in Glover Park, a few buildings north of the Russian Embassy) at 8am, and distinctly heard the Star Spangled Banner. It wasn’t very quiet.

Has anyone else heard it (if so what neighborhood?) and have you been able to pinpoint the origin?
Thanks to Moriah for sending this crazy shot around 6pm outside the Glover Park Whole Foods at 2323 Wisconsin Ave, NW.
