who wants 1st street rumors?

ooh, ooh, i do, i do!

so, here's the best i can give for now. the latest rumor that i've heard (from a pretty reliable source) is that the purple space on 1st street next to the DC mini mart is being looked at by a gym of some sort.

then, in the big dog, the northwest corner of 1st and seaton, the latest rumor is that a coffee shop could go in. now, don't get me wrong, coffee shops seem to be good things, but with big bear and windows serving up coffee on either end of "bloomingdale's downtown", do we have the market for a third? of course, there ARE four places selling beer within a few feet of the corner of 1st and rhode island, so you never know...

I'd welcome a coffee shop in that space, but I'd *really* welcome a sit down restaurant with a beer/wine license, perhaps a wood-oven pizza joint like Red Rocks that just opened in Columbia Heights. That would really add something new to the neighborhood.
