Wow. Didn't know Harris Teeter was in the area that long. But of course, time has flown this past decade.
IIRC they were in Arlington maybe 5 years before DC.

The food was mostly great, with the crab dip being the best I ever had, a pretty great shrimp stir fry, and then, there was the pizza... Initially I was impressed because the tomato sauce was juicy and fresh, and the dough was thin and well done but... it was quite tasteless! It seemed as if they forgot to add salt at all


I'm thinking of giving the pizza a second try, but it would be helpful to hear other people's experiences beforehand.In any case, I whole heartedly recommend the place.

I am a BIG fan of the Sunday brunch!

Looks like TJ will have grog. This maneuver to bypass other restrictions in state law has happened with other new developments (Laurel, Woodmore,) in recent years, so I'll be surprised if it doesn't pass.

Separately, after 15 years Harris Teeter is closing one of its four stores in DC in January. Potomac Ave. SE.

So this bill would allow TJ to skirt the 10k sqft limit to sell alcohol? Also, is there anything linking this to TJ? Couldn't it be for other businesses in those blocks?


In any case, these alcohol laws are so outdated.

It doesn't really have new information and reads a bit like a PR release, but I guess it is good to have it out there. Still, it is hard to believe the $3.5B valuation of IonQ. Unless there's something truly unexpected, quantum computers shouldn't be really useful for a fairly long time.

Interesting! I think I had heard someone in another forum also mention the brunch, so I should go there in the morning some time. Thanks!

Valuation is part of the stock price which had a run up a few weeks ago. The stock price has now since dropped a bit. That run up was because people saw that Amazon, Google, and Microsoft became investors, partners.

Apparently, IONQ has found a different method of quantum computing. Maybe that's where their value is. I wouldn't say they won't be used for a long time. I see them being used inside this decade.

Good point, I had forgotten about that. AFAICT, the transfer applies only to off-premise licenses, because there is little difficulty getting a new on-premise license. In the past, these changes have been at the behest of the developers, (as opposed to license applicants), who want an off-premise option.

Wegmans in Crofton, Harris Teeter in Bowie have gotten around the 10K sqft limit, by joint venture with adjacent liquor stores. In Crofton, it's next door, in Bowie, it's under the same entrance but separated.
The licenses are held by "independent" individuals, but the inventory/prices, etc. are "controlled" by corporate. Wegmans has also done this in Owings Mills, Hunt Valley, and other states.

The end of an era. The last Knox box has now been demolished (the odd one out in the corner of Terrapin Row). This is a nice picture showing the clearing and grading for Aspen Heights (two 9-story buildings with 434 beds and 2,080 sf of retail) and The Hub (a 9 story building with 464 beds and 1,022 sq of retail). It is kinda nifty that they are both building exactly at the same time, thus minimizing the duration of the construction nuisance.

I'm absolutely floored at how many separate projects are under construction in South Campus alone. A decade ago we were happy to have two or three on the entire Rt. 1 strip. Now there are four just within about a 3 block area.

Is something being built on the spot of the last Knox box or will that just be an open space? Seems like an odd place to build right in front of the Terrapin Row complex
