It’s been a while since I’ve stopped by Union Station, didn’t realize the Bojangles closed. There was great excitement when we first learned Bojangles was coming back in 2010 (a lifetime ago, a question we asked in that post “Do you think anything will ever go into the old movie theater space?”)

On Friday January 31st, 2020 we shared the scuttlebutt that shook (some of) our worlds. And so concludes the magnificent roller coaster ride of when will Taco Bell Cantina open in Columbia Heights. We got our first report at 10:58am from C., “columbia heights taco bell is open, my roommate was just inside the actual restaurant.” Thanks to Tenzin and everyone else for sending the good word. Tenzin notes: “alcoholic drinks are dine-in only!”
