Reston's Vibrant Economy Part 25: Short Takes on Lame Clothes and Letterboxing, Whatever That Is

So much business "news," so little time.

  • Reston Town Center gets three bitchin' new retailers -- J. Crew, Anthopologie and Pitango Gelato. Time to pop up your collars, pour on the Axe body spray and go cruisin' for babes while enjoying a tiny plastic cup of overpriced ice cream! Next month, a couple of restaurants are opening -- PassionFish from the Passion Food LLC Group and Jackson’s Mighty Fine Food & Lucky Lounge from Great American Restaurants. At least some of those words, in some combination, might describe the dining experience. But it's Reston, so no one will get "lucky," except maybe these people.

  • Speaking of looking for love in all the wrong places, somehow this awesome Reston entrepreneur got a mention in a front-page article in the Washington Post. What, they couldn't do another 19-part series on Chandra Levy?

  • Sallie Mae President C.E. Andrews is leaving. No, he's not the guy with the potty mouth.

  • Someone stole a fancy artistic mailbox from Reston's Used Book Shop at Lake Anne a few weeks ago, but then they found it under a pile of books. Somehow some weird fad called "letterboxing" is involved, but it's late and our eyes started glazing over, the end.
