A Morning at Eastern Market!

 

Eat & Shop @ the Eastern Market!

Visit Labyrinth Game Shop afterwards!

Saturday @ 11AM Sharp

 

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

I know what you're thinking. What's a great place to go on a Saturday Morning between the hours of 11 and 2?

Well it's your lucky day.  Because we're going to check out Eastern Market.

What you've never heard of this place?  It's only been open since 1873, but hey. Who's counting.

Sure it's easy to miss, you know, the Orange/ Blue Line to Eastern Market Station is really hard to find.  What street is it?  Oh it's on 7th Ave SE, or right next to the station.  Yeah like Waldo amirite?

Are you wondering what else you can do there besides grab brunch at the amazing Market Lunch that serves spicy buckwheat pancakes and crabcake sandwiches? Or the delicious bakery that offers life-changing lemonade? Well you could certainly check out one of the fifty or sixty street vendors and purchase something like chocolate peppermint soap, a smell your man/woman/pet-rock could smell like, or stock up on some fresh, home grown vegetables from farmers in the area.

After our exciting tour at Eastern Market, we're going to check out Labyrinth Games and Puzzles.  A boardgames/puzzles shop.  You can tinker around with those weird 3d wooden puzzles because you're weird, or those weird 3d metal puzzles because you're weird, or buy your next favorite boardgame to show off when Bladen invites all the cool people to his house again.

Come out and have some good, clean, wholesome fun. The kind your mother would approve.  Because we're wholesome. Like Fiber One.

    We are at metro center still waiting for orange/blue, I think we'll be about 15 mins late. But we'll be there!!

    I'm excited to finally try these famous pancakes! The other times they were all gone /I got there in afternoon. TODAY, It seems I will be late. Coming by bike. Orange line has major delays. I'll see who else is at the metro... Maybe there can be a "stragglers" group ?!
    I will be wearing a bright turquoise down jacket (and locking up my bike) :)

    • Maria (.

      I'll probably be a straggler. I'm wearing the same thing I have on in my profile pic with black tights and black boots

    I can park in the surrounding neighborhoods if I have the parkmobile app, right?

    February 1, 2014

    • Chip V.

      I would have no idea since I use the metro to get around the district

      February 1, 2014

  • Chip V.

    Morning all. Hope everyone excited for today. Just a few last minute updates for ya:

    1) As far as a meeting spot before we walk over to the Eastern Market, meet up near the Eastern Market station. I'll be wearing a Tron hoodie to help stick myself out of the crowd. 2) If you need to reach me in case you're running late and want to know where the rest of the group is, my cell is[masked]-4172. I only ask don't go crazy with the calling and texting

    See you all at 11!

    I was actually going to head to Eastern Market this weekend anyways. Pretty sweet coincidence!

    Hey all,

    Just a heads up, there's going to be work on the Metro this weekend which will cause delays with the exception to the Green Line, so plan your trip down to Eastern Market accordingly:
