Why not? I mean we have Ruby Tuesdays, Legal Seafoods, a movie theater, bowling alley, and now a smoothie shop. Why not throw in the mall chain that is Auntie Anne’s Pretzels?
Auntie Anne’s is opening in Gallery Place’s “Kiosk Row” between Chipotle and Clydes in the little green kiosk which used to house a florist.
I’m a huge fan of local, non-chain restaurant eating, so this part of Chinatown is already kind of an eyesore for me. This just brings insult to injury. But I guess that’s what we should expect in the “Times Square of DC,” as this block has been called.
What do you think? Will you be stopping by Auntie Anne’ for their delicious pretzels? Or does this feel strange to you, too?
