    They are in the process of trying to open their first stores in DC as well.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/07/02/AR2010070204912.html

    “Wal-Mart is negotiating to open a store on New York Avenue NE near the intersection of Bladensburg Road, on a parcel owned by a family in the taxicab business, according to sources familiar with the negotiations.

    The chain, which has expressed interest in opening a store in the city for years as part of its expansion into major urban markets, has not yet signed a lease but is expected to by this fall, the sources said. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized by the companies to discuss the details.”

    What a great thread. I too was terribly spoiled for most of my life and lived a max of 10 miles from the beach. Being landlocked was the biggest challenge of the move to Columbus.

    But all these lovely options sound so interesting, I’ve never swam in a lake and find it curiously gross, but still looking forward to heading to one of these spots this hot hot summer. Thank you lovelies!

    I haven’t had a chance to see if this place opened yet, but will definitely go.
    I don’t really think there’s too much of a connection with the Lebanese style of food served at Lavash & the Afghani food at Cafe Kabul. If you want to compare it with something local, then probably Jeddo Kabob or maybe Cafe Istanbul (which is pushing it). But honestly, if you’re ordering food that’s overlapping on the menus of Cafe Kabul & Lavash, you won’t be getting the best each has to offer.

    Jon its interesting you find the food bland, I’m curious if it was the restaurant you ate at or if you just find the food itself boring?

    Oh great, thank you for sharing, I’m going to check that out for sure, its a bit out of the way for me, but in a great location demographically!
    I usually do my “fancy” shopping at the place behind Cafe Shish Kabob out on Bethel road, but the (kinda dirty) store on olentangy is close by and has my favorite thing ever, spicy mango pickle, yum.
    I was told about a great new kurdish bakery out near Rt 161 that makes killer Iraqi bread, but still haven’t been able to actually get the address for it. Nothing beats freshly baked bread…

    Beautiful spaces, very chicago style, they really did a good job with making them each look different and not mcmansion-style cookie cutter. While I thought it was beautiful and a great addition to the downtown, I didn’t think it was a good spot for us. It didn’t seem like it would be kid friendly, the rooms were awkwardly small in some of the houses.

    I completely fell in love with the deck off the master bedroom in one of them, I could live on that deck! It wasn’t a good fit for us though, so I think we’ll stick to house hunting in victorian village. :)
