Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Pop-Up BBQ restaurant going into Furin’s soon.
  • When people throw terms like “Georgetown Syndrome” or “Georgetown Cocktail Party” around, GM wonders if they’ve ever actually been to one. Who really thinks Georgetown is some bastion of liberal hostesses anymore?

Go to Furin’s This Weekend, It’s Your Last Chance

Don’t forget to go to Furin’s this weekend, it’s your last chance. They close July 31st after 27 family-run years.

GM’s never met anyone that knew Furin’s that didn’t love it. It’s a genuine and simple diner in the middle of a high-rent district filled mostly with over-priced and generally mediocre restaurants. It attracts tourists, locals, area-residents, and celebrities alike. Continue reading

What Would Be Your Heartbreaker?

Stores close in Georgetown all the time. When you have a retail district of over 500 stores and restaurants, even a very low failure rate would still result in a dozen or so closings a year. But GM has noticed that over the last six months or so, the closings have been more notable.

And maybe they’re such a loss that it just broke your heart for Georgetown. GM felt that way as Nathans closed, and he’s still sad about it. But what about you?

Scheele’s Market by M.V. Jantzen.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Scheele’s Market is under contract (again). GM understands that the new owner (who doesn’t appear to be Marc Teren) intends to keep the market open and live upstairs. More info as it comes in.
  • PoP judges Furin’s (or rather, simply posts a picture and asks his readers to actually have something interesting to say, which is to say: PoP posts something).
  • GM’s finally back, so check back for regular postings.
