1. Miss Pixie’s is closing in Adams Morgan. NOOOOOOOoooo! Not only did she have great finds, but I also dug walking by and checking out her ever-changing, eye-catching window displays. And she always had chocolate chip cookies behind the counter. And if you came in on days it was snowing she had a freshly opened bottle of wine back there with the cookies. Plus I fear this will pave the way for yet another chain. According to a sign that went up last night, Miss Pixie is sashaying down to 14th Street with the rest of the cool kids.
2. Spotted in Adams Morgan recently, courtesy of the new Wachovia branch:
My initial cynical response was to roll my eyes, but then I realized that this idea is genius. It just needs a little tweaking. Instead of mid-day checking account hawking, you load these things up with jumbo slices and send ’em down 18th Street at 2 a.m. Who gets out alive? The drunkies? The wheelie guys? It’s anybody’s guess!
3. Finally, what’s up with the rodents? First SnacksPlease is dealing with rats, then CityDesk is reporting a mouse incursion. We had our own mouse run-in this weekend and now Ms. Poole has one eating her brownies. Local government entities, please start spaying and neutering your rodent populations.
