4th at Tingey, Looking Southeast (see more)

Cleaning off the digital desk:
* Readers are reporting that the fence is coming down around the Bullpen on Half Street. This would be in preparation for the new Fairgrounds offering. Designs show that the new "fence" will be shipping containers, which makes sense given that the venture is centered around a shipping container market. Their intent is to have it up and running by Opening Day. (Read my Fairgrounds post from a few weeks ago for much more detail.)
* Residents won't exactly be interested in this news (except maybe from a parking/traffic angle), but I'll still pass along that a new venture called Ballpark Bus is getting launched this season to bring fans from five northern Virginia locations to the stadium. (More to be announced soon, the web site says.) The blog Let Teddy Win has more about the service.
* If you'd rather get to the stadium by sea, Potomac Riverboat Company is once again running its Baseball Boat for the 2012 season--boats leave Alexandria and take about a half-hour to get to Diamond Teague Park, right across from Nationals Park. Price is $24 for a round-trip voyage or $15 one way. (You can also set sail from National Harbor by taking PRC's service from there to Alexandria and then hook up with the baseball boat, for $30 round trip or $20 one way.)
* Also getting ready for another season of operations is American River Taxi, whose owner tweeted on Monday "See you for Cherry Blossoms." The boat stops at Georgetown, the Southwest Waterfront, and Teague Park--and now that pier is a lovely riverside-bridge-walk away from the Yards Park (rather than having to walk up 1st to Tingey, over to 3rd, and down).
* Still haven't heard of an official opening date for Potbelly (though it's expected to be next week), but a press release says that the hours will be 10 am - 7 pm seven days a week, along with delivery service Monday through Friday from 10 am to 2 pm. The store's general manager will be James Carpenter, who previously worked at their Union Station shop. Trivia fans will also note that this location at 301 Tingey (in the ground floor of the Foundry Lofts) will be the 45th Potbelly to open in the DC area.

Not that I am not happy that Potbellys is coming into the neighborhood but it would be great if some of the places were actually open when we all get off of work that live in the hood. I am sure come of the new ones coming in will be but why not stay open till 9 and get the business from the hundreds of people who live in the neighborhood.

If you can hang on until June, Park Tavern at Canal Park is supposed to have normal bar/restaurant hours...


Eric says: (3/6/12 12:57 PM)
Yeah that's kind of crap. I get home at 7PM. Even an extra hour would make a huge difference.

Jerks.


ZoolanderANDtheBoYz says: (3/6/12 1:02 PM)
7pm? Who gets off from work at 7pm?


MJM says: (3/6/12 1:40 PM)
Most Potbellys don't stay open that late - the ones downtown do but Ballston closes early too


lefabe says: (3/6/12 1:51 PM)
I guess Potbelly is just going after the DOT market, no one else is around between 10-7.


Eric says: (3/6/12 3:46 PM)
Get HOME at 7, not get off work.


TheJCG says: (3/7/12 3:19 AM)
Wow, people don't like the hours of the 45th crappy sandwich shop in the DC area? Those hours just make it easier for me to avoid getting sucked in to taste one of the "wide variety" of sandwiches that all have the same awful, mealy, blech taste. Even better would be replacing it with something that is actually good like Chop't or CalTort.


Sophia Monster says: (3/7/12 8:28 AM)
I can't wait until that shipping container lot is complete so that I can reenact scenes from season 2 of The Wire.


Bob says: (3/7/12 8:52 AM)
What is Councilman Wells doing to attract more and better retail, food and otherwise, to the neighborhood?


G Street says: (3/7/12 4:21 PM)
Mention JD and get extra pickles with your order! (-:


David Garber says: (3/7/12 8:37 PM)
According to the developers, these hours are subject to change based on perceived demand once the Potbelly opens.
