Sad to see them go, but it's a great opportunity for someone to open a Hangar Cafe-type deli right there in the thick of things. Especially now that Georgetown is passing the tipping point of too-cool-for-school on over to frat-boy-friendly. I really started noticing it about a week ago -- Jules Maes was filled with guys in black trousers with button-up shirts tucked in and girls with designer jeans and Gene Juarez blond highlights. Where did these people come from? Not Georgetown or Mid Beacon Hill, I can assure you.
With the recent Sabey announcement about the demolition of the Stock House (and their coming announcement of the construction of something that will appeal to more than the couple thousand local residents), Georgetown is now officially a destination neighborhood.
Georgetown is the new Fremont. South Park is the new Georgetown. But Mid Beacon Hill is still just a bedroom community wasteland.
