Mt. Pleasant Temporium is a Hit, Adams Morgan Gets Their Own

Pop-up stores, pop-up art exhibits, pop-up restaurants–I need to resist making the cliche that DC is literally “poppin’.” Moreover, all of these places seem to be having pretty successful runs.

Mt. Pleasant Temporium, which Rebecca Gross reported on earlier, took in $31,000 in sales in less than a month. The temporium was open from February 18th to March 13th and saw more than 6,800 visitors and hosted 23 events with storytelling, crafting and live music. Not too shabby, huh? Garment District in Shaw also closed their doors this past weekend. Though word on the tweets is they still have some pieces for sale that you can snag at Shaw Main Streets’ Annual meeting tomorrow at 7 pm.

Fear not if you didn’t get the memo on these last pop-ups. The AdMo Pop-Up Shop is opening this Sunday, March 27th at 2421 18th St. NW. The store’s run coincides with the National Cherry Blossom Festival (as it’s an approved Cherry Blossom partner) and will close on April 10th. Hours are Sunday through Thursday, 12 PM – 9 PM and Friday and Saturday, 11 AM – 10 PM. Similar to the Mt. Pleasant Temporium, the AdMo Pop-up Shop will offer arts, crafts, entertainment and workshops. No events other than the opening ribbon-cutting ceremony and the closing wine tasting have been posted on their site yet, but you can keep tabs on them here.

The first yoga studio in Mt. Pleasant has just opened opens soon, serving yogis at all levels, and it does sound fun. Classes include Strong Hold for athletic types, Virgin Yoga for newbies, and a jammin’ Friday Happy Hour with a Top 40, alternative or R&B soundtrack.

Past Tense is at 3235 Mt. Pleasant Ave., three blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro.

On Tuesday at 7 p.m., they’ll be having a free class outside at Lamont Park (17th and Lamont). And they’ll be taking pictures that they promise will not make your butt look big. Yay for yoga!

Update: They believe the studio will open June 25, so keep an eye on their site.
