Dolcezza to Stay in Place, For Now

Back in September, GM was saddened to pass along the message he received from a Dolcezza worker: that once the store’s production equipment was moved to Union Market, the Georgetown location would close.

At the time, GM did a little digging and discovered that that was not exactly true, but learned that the store was nonetheless considering leaving this location (where it was founded in 2003).

Georgetown Waterfront Park

As you may have noticed, it has rained a ton this week. Which means that contrary to GM’s message up and to the right, you do not need to water your young street trees this week.

And this is a good time as any to remind you to check with the Casey Tree’s website right here to see an updated forecast on watering needs. For this week they tell us:

Watering is not needed.Mother Nature to our rescue. Despite a dry month so far, with a relatively substantial precipitation accumulation from last week and roughly another 1.5″ headed our way…watering is not necessary.

Too much watering can be as harmful as too little. So if you’re not sure, check with the experts at Casey Trees!

  • Somewhat true to type, yet really impressive nonetheless: Hoyas are wicked good sailers.

Happy Fourth of July!

3700 block of Water St.

GM’s too bummed about the US Men’s loss yesterday to write anything. And besides, he’s got to get packing for his road trip. He’ll be out the rest of this week and all next week. He’ll be back the following week (somewhat but not really) tanned, rested and ready.

Happy Fourth of July!
