After weeks of watchful waiting, the reports are coming in that Cornercopia, the little market and sandwich stop at the corner of Third and K streets, SE, has opened for business today, and reader Jamie has his receipt time-stamped at 12:07 pm
to not only prove that it was open, but to win the free sandwich I promised to the first reader to report that the store was operating. In the comments on another thread, Carey says that right now they're only accepting cash until they get some credit-card-transaction kinks worked out; they're also giving away "green" reuseable Cornercopia bags.
To make this new arrival in the neighborhood even more of a neighborhood event, I'd like to invite anyone who has a few minutes of free time to join Jamie and me for the ceremonial Purchasing of the Sandwich. Check back soon for the date and time (haven't been able to get it coordinated just yet, but didn't want to delay this post any longer...)
