Why, yes, I did spend part of my Saturday taking pictures of new-and-not-so-new signs in windows! (Also took lots of other photos, which will come soon.)
Elsewhere, I alas have to improvise, having either been too lazy to walk closer or too boneheaded to take a photo when I was actually standing right in front of the dang sign. But nonetheless here's evidence of Bethesda Bagels
, coming to Insignia on M
, and Shake Shack
, which recently received its building permit for its space at the Homewood Suites
, in the retail space at Cushing and M (a second space does not yet have any announced tenant):
In non-signage retail news, here's the current state of construction on the new District Winery
building at the Yards, along with photographic evidence that the shipping containers have indeed been removed from the southern two-thirds of the former Fairgrounds
footprint. They remain up by Half and M, however.
Everything mentioned here is expected to open in 2017, as are some other not-photographed venues. Scroll down below my Food Map
for the full list of announced-but-not-open offerings.
