CHS Pics | Vigil for Melrose and Pine

IMG_1472IMG_1405Thursday night, neighbors, poets, writers, DJs and artists gathered to share work in remembrance of Melrose and Pine before the block undergoes a massive redevelopment later this year that will forever alter the mix of small, local retail and cafe culture that grew at the corner. CHS shared details of the Vigil : Inspired by Memory event and a roster of participating artists here.

The unofficial end of things “the way they were” comes October 5th when Bauhaus celebrates its 20th anniversary at Melrose and Pine — and its final day of business there until the construction is completed in a couple years. In the meantime, the much-loved coffee shop will make its home in a temporary space nearby. That location has yet to be revealed. Something to look forward to as you take a look back.

More pictures from Thursday night, below.

  1. Don’t let developers destroy the history or charm that remains on Capitol Hill and replace it with condos and Subway sandwich shops…and 15 bars per block.
