  1. a lot of this stuff sounds really good! It is so fun watching all these small businesses open up with each passing month.

  2. I can't wait until Angelico's opens up. I used to live in Tenleytown, and their pizza delivery was the only way to go.

  3. Bowling and pizza? Who doesn't want that? I love all the new things that are coming. I just want them to be here already so I can enjoy! This summer is going to RULE!
