Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.
It’s taken 5 years just to get to this point but we finally have some meaty details on the development for the Alexandria Theater property. Plans include a 245-seat theater, retail space, and a new building on the back lot that includes retail and 46 condominiums.
In other land news, I visited the Argonne Community Garden this past weekend, the Richmond’s only community garden. Check out the movie to see the variety of flowers, vegetables (artichokes!) and garden plots that are tucked into the space that wraps around the Argonne Children’s Center.
This Saturday is Healthy Kids Day at the YMCA. Bring out the little ones for a free day of healthy activities including planting your own garden, Health Obstacle course, Fantasy EYE-land, arts & crafts, and more.
Looking for a good walk this weekend? Head out to Land’s End in the NW corner of the city. While you’re out there, see if you can find the “Battle of the Bulge Memorial Trail”. I’ve lived here my whole life and just stumbled on it recently.
On the history beat this week is the question that may keep you up at night: Who is Fulton Street named for? If reading the answer helps you sleep better, then my work is done.
I’ll leave you with a new restaurant alert. After teasing us with slick photos of its clubby interior, Morph opened up this week on Geary near 18th Avenue. So if Japanese-Thai fusion makes your mouth water, give it a try and then leave a review.
Have a great weekend everyone!
