With thanks to the deputy mayor's office and Gangplank Marina
, I now have the list of the companies and vessels that are on the "Operator Master List" for docking at the new piers at Diamond Teague Park
(right across the street from Nationals Park
* Entertainment Cruises
, which runs the well-known Odyssey and the Spirit of Washington cruises from the Southwest Waterfront, is signed up to allow their Seadog
speedboat and Capital Elite
yacht to dock at Teague;
* The Miss Ann
, docked at the Southwest Waterfront;
* Capital Yacht Charters, which operates out of the Southwest Waterfront, can dock four ships: the Finished Business, Celebrity, Running Mate, and Margaritaville.
It looks like that for the rest of this year it will probably only be charter service docking at Teague, with scheduled water taxi service for games not starting up until next spring. But maybe some outfit will surprise. The Earth Conservation Corps will be working with Coastal Properties (aka the folks at the Gangplank) to manage the piers, and apparently there will be an official web site for the Teague park and piers up soon. They're also still working on the landscaping, which should be finished next month.
Last week, neighborhood resident Jamie D. was the first to report that Cornercopia had opened for business
, and so won the free sandwich I had been touting for months as a way to get JDLand readers to do my surveillance work for me. We've set up a time for this honor to be bestowed (and thanks to Albert at Cornercopia for indulging all of this), so if any folks are around and feel like stopping by Cornercopia to meet some fellow residents and point and make fun of Jamie while he eats his sandwich, come wander by the corner of Third and K, SE, on Friday (Aug. 21) at 6 pm
. (This gives Nats fans enough time to sprint to the stadium to use their $1 tickets.) It'd be great to meet some of the commenters and correspondents who make this place so lively, especially since there's a number of new faces around here these days.
Though, please note that I'm only footing the bill for *one* sandwich. I don't have the funds to buy off everyone! (Dang advertising market collapse!)
