Social Safeway is BACK!

and back with a bang, it is!  Last night we had the opportunity to check out the store before it’s opening to the public this morning and I must say, watch out Whole Foods. From a nut bar (yes, I’m serious), to an extensive wine cellar (including Gaja, Insignia, and a plethora of other great bottles), to an amazing chocolate counter, it’s got just about everything you could want in a grocery store, AND MORE!  I’ll be a frequent visitor to the world cuisine section of the produce department.  Last night, it was full of fresh garbanzo beans, baby purple artichokes, miniature cauliflower and guavas – all in perfect ripe shape!  Hurry over to check it out – there will be food samplings throughout the store for the next couple of days!

Return of a Legend…

If you’re like me, you’ve had enough of Whole Food’s prices, Trader Joe’s bad produce and running to Virginia every time you need paper towels.  Well, the good news is finally here.  Our beloved Social Safeway is scheduled to open on May 6th.

And it gets better… It’s going to be open 24 hours a day!  And the store wouldn’t be complete without a sit-down sushi bar with sushi chefs, complete wine cellar, comprehensive cheese section, brick-oven pizza department, an Italian-style gelato bar, an upgraded Starbucks coffee bar, along with an indoor/outdoor seating area featuring a fireplace, HD televisions, complimentary WiFi, and open balcony overlooking Wisconsin Avenue.  How’s that for a facelift?

See you there!
