Safeway/Waterfront Station Holds 2-Day Grand Opening Event in SWDC

As reported in my Wednesday, 14 April blog posting the newly constructed Safeway at Waterfront Station in SWDC held a two-day grand opening event.

When I arrived for the Preview Party and Shopping Tour on Thursday evening, 15 April 2010 the Chin Hamaya Culture Club was just concluding its performance.

While DC Council Chairman Vincent Gray (D) and Councilmember Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6) attended Thursday's preview event, Mayor Adrian Fenty and Councilmember Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) were on hand for the Friday morning, 16 April 2010 Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.

And if you stopped in on either day you may would have been serenaded by the country soul and old time rock and roll sounds of Boss "Cowboy" Hawk who many SWDC Safeway shoppers already know as Leslie, The Cowboy as he greeted the crowd at the front entrance.

Here is my Thursday, 15 April 2010 video of his performance.
