How many Safeway’s can you name?

Well how many can you? And I’m talking the fun nicknames for Safeways. Like the Soviet Safeway on 17th & Corcoran or the Senior Safeway in the Watergate and the Secret Safeway in that special spot that not even knows about.

Now while DCist had a recent run on naming grocery stores, they wandered over to Giants and yet skipped entire sections of town in their Safeway naming rage. This map, while interactive, also was too NW and yet Gallaudet went cross-country in their grocery store critique

The DC Metroblogging contest focuses just on Safeway’s, and just on those 10 that are within 10 miles of the White House. If you can make the best list, and the best case for your list, there’s a cool, limited edition DC Metroblogging T-shirt waiting for ya!

Wanna see the list & name your store? Then follow the jump…

Here are the stores, now see if you can name all 10. I’ll give you a freebee – 1. is the Soviet Safeway due to the poor selection, constant out out-of-stocks, long lines, and bad service. Hell, I lived in Soviet countries and had better services.

Now get busy, you have nine more to name and a T-shirt to win:

Married, mortgaged, and soon to be a father, Wayan Vota is in the fast lane to mid-life respectability – until the day his brood finds his intimate journal of global traveling and curses him with the ever-eternal reply “I’m gonna be just like you, Dad!”
