All the Safeways in DC have names. Some aren’t consistent between people, but there’s always a name. I mean, c’mon, what other Grocery outlet gets a City Paper Best Of? I can’t think of one. Via local blogger Jack Hirsch comes a short taxonomy of Safeways in DC. Anyone see one that’s missing?
What about the new fancy “Sexy Safeway” in the CityVista building at 5th & L NW?
I can see two right off the bat:
Sexy Safeway, the new one in the CityVista plex on 5th near Mt. Vernon Square;
The one on RI Ave NE up on the hill in that strip mall behind the McDonalds (across RI Ave from Engine Company 12). Don’t know that it’s been named, tho.
Prince of Petworth has also looked at this question. Twice.
And then there’s my own observation. But maybe that’s less helpful than the PoP link.
Don’t forget the one on Wilson Blvd. in Rosslyn- ‘UselesSafeway’
That used to be the Sandinista Safeway not the Spanish Safeway (and it’s more Central American anyway), but I guess that’s a function of the times…
And there’s the UnSafeWay on MAryland Ave NE off H St & Benning Rds.
I remember asking this question back when we were all DC Metbloggers. Yep, right here, almost 4 years ago to the day: http://dc.metblogs.com/2005/10/03/how-many-safeways-can-you-name/
