Lunar / Mars massage rivalry

A reader sent me info about a one day discount program at Lunar Massage. I have limited internet access this week so I didn’t read the message until the program was sold out. But I like the cleverness of the Mars versus Lunar aspect of the ad and thought I’d share that below:


For the rest of the ad visit Groupon. Customer reviews for this new small business can be found on Yelp.

Douglas Development puts Square 451 property up for lease

Douglas Development has posted a space for lease sign on the 3 bay garage at 624 New York Avenue NW. This property is part of Jemal’s assemblage on Square 451 for which Paul Millstein presented the development concepts for last November to the MVSNA membership.



Is this movement on the part of Douglas merely an exercise to avoid being assessed at the vacant property rate? Considering Executive Auto Detailers recently invested money to renovate the exterior of their Jemal owned property (607 K Street) on the same square, signs point to new construction being far off.

Auto Detailer gives new look (to their building)

The Executive Auto Detailers recently gave the exterior of their building (607 K Street NW) a new look. I don’t think the light blue was the best possible choice but the overall look is cleaner and represents an improvement.
