Windowless, $2,300 Apartments “Going Very Quickly”

In February, news broke that the roller rink above the Adams Morgan Harris Teeter was being turned into apartments. Eight of the apartments at the center of the former rink wouldn't have windows, getting light instead through a skylight. It looked like D.C. apartment mania had finally met its match: Who would pay thousands of [...]

Southwest Residents Concerned about 12-Day Safeway Closure

Southwest residents have long kvetched about their local Safeway, on M Street SW. Shortages of staples such as bread and milk, produce so aged it wilts before you can get it onto the dinner table, long checkout lines—those experiences are consensus points for those who live in the city's forgotten corner.
And another point of consensus: [...]

With Snow Hours Away, Panic Strikes Harris Teeter!

Inaugural Hail Marys, Pt. II

Harris Teeter on Kalorama Road NW is abound with Inaugural Hail Marys™ today–Obama hot sauce, 312 beer brought in all the way from Chicago for people who wanna do this thing RIGHT.
