whoever believed balducci's would ever commit to the penn quarter neighborhood needs a reality check or a little more time living in the eastend of dc. ofcourse they did an extensive market review and consulted they're psychic's. most of the residents either have cars, vespa's or accounts with safeway.com or peapod already. if they want booze, central liquor has been in downtown since the 40's. and there are several newstands, lottery outlets and CVS's existing.
