Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Medstar denies that they are planning on moving the hospital. (For what it’s worth, GM is still confident a move is being considered and believes Medstar’s denial is born from not wanting to deal with the blowback until final plans are completed.)
  • GM noticed that the top two floors of the old Garrett’s building is being converted into apartments. GM hasn’t heard so much as a whisper about the actual restaurant space though.

But GM has noticed that over the last six months or so, the closings have been more notable. Whether it’s Commander Salamander closing in January after 30 years, the Bonino-era Griffin Market closing in February, or Garrett’s closing after more than 30 years just last week, each has been a big loss.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Garrett’s closed. GM heard a few months ago that they lost their lease, but he’s not sure what is supposed to go in there. GM got too old for the Garrett’s scene a long time ago, but he’s sorry to see an old standby shut down.
  • Some ideas to attract students back to campus.
