Taylor Gourmet to Open in Logan Circle
Washingtonian has the scoop on the tasty sandwich chain Taylor Gourmet‘s latest location in Logan Circle at 1908 14th Street NW (west side, north of T). This is the current location of Ruff & Ready Furnishings, which is moving. Don’t get too excited for your delicious sandwich, though. Due to a need for extensive renovations, they don’t plan to open until mid to late fall. The good news? They will have a delivery and take-out option with service up to Columbia Heights. Nom nom, indeed.
Summer in DC: No Power, No Escalators?
I swear Metro is in a silent partnership with The Biggest Loser to encourage city residents to take the stairs by having so many escalators out of service. The alternative — that our system cannot keep up with the escalator demand — is not an easy issue to resolve, so I will follow the D.C. maxim of ignoring it until it inconveinces me. Oh wait, as the Washington Examiner reports, it already is. More than one-fifth of Metro’s escalators are out of service on Wednesday in our 90-degree heat. At least you went home to a residence with power, unlike the unfortunate folks left at the mercy of Pepco in NE (check out WUSA’s story and thermometer. It’s bad. I feel bad for our NE friends).
