Party The Block For Scheele’s

Photo by M.V. Jantzen.

Through the efforts of dedicated neighbors like Malcolm Peabody, the long term future of Scheele’s Market is secure. To recap: Jordan O’Neill purchased the building from the Scheele family and has signed a covenant with a group of neighbors to keep the market open for at least 15 years. In exchange for the covenant, the neighbors have agreed to pay O’Neill $75,000.

So far the Save Scheele’s fund has raised almost the complete amount it needs. Sixty neighbors have contributed $55,000 total. To push the over the top, tomorrow night there will be a block party. It will kick off at 6:00 and go till 9:00 and will be on 29th between O and Dumbarton. You can bring your donation (a check made out to Friends of Scheele’s) to the party. Continue reading

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Despite securing the option to sign a new long term lease at Scheele’s, the Lees have decided to retire. The neighborhood group that negotiated to gaurantee a market remain at the property for at least the next 15 years will now seek a new market operator. Make sure to stop by and wish the Lees well.
  • New food truck regulations unlikely to bring any change to Georgetown.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Carol Joynt reports that Scheele’s might close by the end of November. No word on whether the new landlord plans to bring in a new market.
  • On the good news (but not as good as the previous news was bad) Hook has a sign up in its window saying they’ll be open soon.
