Beer Run: Carolina Market
This is a weird place. I don't know if it just opened or was closing, but when I went in, on a Saturday afternoon, it was dark inside and they had almost nothing on the shelves -- a couple of bags of chips, some other random items, and maybe 4 six-packs of beer in some coolers that didn't feel cold. Maybe there was a power outage, though it seemed like there was some music coming from somewhere, or it was just a weird place. I left pretty quickly.
So, basically, try somewhere else. Maybe I caught them at a bad time, but the place was not very welcoming.
Selection: 0 - almost nothing
Price: N/A - see selection
Ambiance: 0! awful
That would be the worst rating so far. I'll check back in a few weeks to see if it's still so bad, or even still there.
Carolina Market is at 14th and Newton Street NW
UPDATE: commenters say the place is always like that, which makes me wonder how it stays open? Something else must be going on, or maybe they sell stuff I didn't see -- there were a lot of glass counters towards the back.
