things i’ll miss…

Posted by slykwyk on January 30, 2010

I have been thinking about some of the things I will miss here in Northern Virginia as we move to NC next week.  Thought I would share over the next few days…

  • Pei Wei – yes, there is not a Pei Wei local to where we are moving.  Bummer.
  • Wegman’s – everytime a Wegman’s comes to town where we live, we seem to move about a year or so later (happened in NJ and now NOVA).  Not sure what to make of that.
  • Dunkin’ Donuts – seriously, there are none close to Chapel Hill from what I can tell.  Wait, just found one about 15 miles away.  Too far.
  • Ikea – the closest is in Charlotte.  Come on, how can you NOT have one in the Raleigh area!

As you can tell, I will miss food here.  And cheap but sexy furniture stores.  I will make my next list with some substance…

    Dunkin Donuts and IKEA are things of great substance. Never sell them short. ha ha I’ll let Wegman’s know not to put a store in down there. Just so you don’t have to move again. =)

    There is a Pei Wei not far from where you are moving to. I’ve eaten there. Maybe 15 minutes or so, but it’s not somewhere you might go everyday, like Dunkin’ Donuts.

    I’m not coming down if you don’t have Dunkin’. Their building one about 7 miles from my house now. Get it done my friend. Go Blue! I also want to add that UK is #1!

    Why would you want to fret over Dunkin Donuts when you’ve moved to Krispy Kreme country?

    Chad,

    Just found out that they’re putting a DD in the Wegman’s shopping center. Doesn’t help you, but coming from NJ also, I miss DD like crazy.

      I know. I was hoping it would be up and running before we left! I did find a DD here but it is about 20 minutes away. Not like Jersey where they were on every street corner!
