What is Columbia Heights Missing?


It's about time I did a new What We're Missing post, but honestly I can't think of anything, so I'm putting it out to you: what do you think the neighborhood is missing? Something cool, something fun, something handy?

So far I've thought we're missing a movie theater, a post office, a thrift store, and more. Here's the whole list.

  1. 1) A good daycare center with a large capacity and short waiting list.

    2) Soon to be a post office.

    3) My wife would say a knitting or yarn store.

  2. Good ones. Is there a post office coming in?

  3. I was thinking that too -- however, Meridian Pint is supposed to open next year, and that could be a good, laid-back neighborhood bar with TVs for watching sports. I hope.
