Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

I took advantage of the sunny evening to dart around getting some desperately needed photo updates. First up is Diamond Teague Park, where progress on not only the water-taxi piers but the "on-land" portion of the park itself is now clearly visible from the viewing platform at Nationals Park. The last projected opening date I heard, a few months back, was July, but while it looks like maybe the park won't be pulled together in the next two weeks, it definitely appears to be getting there. See my Teague page for the latest pics.
I also snuck a peek through the door at Cornercopia and snagged a quick photo, showing goods now stocked on the shelves, but perhaps just short of being ready to open. Maybe they can get ready for all the folks heading to the ballpark this weekend? Don't forget, my offer still stands of a free sandwich to the first person who reports to me that it's open....
I also took some updated photos at Fourth and K in Capitol Quarter, where framing has sprouted on the north side of K. Then I wandered down to the Yards to get some better shots of the southeast corner of Fourth and Tingey, which is where the Trapeze School is going to be located. (You can also see the entire batch of today's photos, where you can then click on the icon to see an angle's entire history.) Speaking of the Trapeze School, the Post's Health section had a story today on what it's like to take a class from them. (You probably won't ever see *me* flying through the air with the greatest of ease.)
One other item--the WashTimes reported today that the Elton/Billy stage left centerfield in a bit of a mess, requiring the grass to be painted. As you can see from this shot I took during batting practice, it seemed to work pretty well.
Lastly, it only took me half the season, but I've now updated my Stadium Parking map to show the many options for cash parking (official and unofficial), in addition to the official Nats season ticket lots. And to think that there was a time when *some* people were worried there wouldn't be enough parking.

Cornercopia looks so pretty! And just from taking a quick peek at what they have on their shelves, I know this is going to be a hit in our hood!

We walked by Cornercopia on way to well attended outdoor movie night (E.T. DID eventually phone home) and saw a 'Closed' sign on door... does that entitle one to half a sandwich???


JD says: (7/17/09 9:35 AM)
Um, no? (Especially since the Closed sign has been there for weeks)


JD says: (7/17/09 10:02 AM)
But maybe, G St, your sighting is good enough to come watch when I buy the sandwich for whoever does win. ;-)

If Cornercopia is just half as good as Vace in Cleveland Park then we will have a mighty fine establishment in our new community.

I'd also like to see a local coffee shop in the hood (non-major chain) like Misha's in Alexandria or Quartermaine in Bethesda.

Cornercopia does look great--thanks for the update!

Someone with the Potomac Riverboat Company said they're hoping to start Water Taxi service from Old Town to the ballpark in late July. Sounds like they are ready to go as soon as the piers are ready.
