Awesome sweetgreen Ballston Grand Opening

sweetgreen is hosting the grand opening party for their SEVENTH location this Wednesday night in Ballston! Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it as I am still on this side of the Atlantic till Dec 13th.

Ladies, even if you are not into greens, I strongly suggest you attend the opening just to meet one of the co-founder who happens to be one of the most good looking Persian Washingtonian dude I know of, Jonathan Newman – besides me of course 🙂

Make sure to RSVP

When: Dec 1st, 6:30 – 8:30
Where: 4075 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA. map

Special performance by Matthew Hemerlein.

Sweetgreen was established in 2007 with the goal of re-defining the concept of fresh casual cuisine.

Nicolas Jammet, Jonathan Neman, and Nathaniel Ru, three like-minded Georgetown students and food lovers, spent their undergraduate years living in a neighborhood with limited food options. After three years of asking each other “Where should we go eat?”, they started to instead ask themselves, “Why not create a place that we would want to eat at on a daily basis?” The result: an idea for a simple, healthy, fast-casual oasis with a focus on high-quality ingredients.

    Hi Elias, I am interested in using one of your lovely snow photos from last year for my church holiday flier but don’t want to do so without your permission. Would you please drop me an email so we can discuss the particulars offline? Thank you so much. SK
