Downtown's new boutique Magpie -- featured in this October BCR story, and over at Durham Magazine's joint as well -- is arriving in West Village this Wednesday, co-owner Tad Schwendler informed us in an email this afternoon.
We're curious to see what the interior looks like; the owners have had the construction area well-obscured, and hinted it would be a fun looking space inside.
That's assuming you can get there -- coz thanks to the never-ending construction efforts on W. Main St., some days it seems like you practically have to be a magpie to fly in to the Walker Warehouse. Fear not; Schwendler shares these handy tips for navigating your auto to their parking lot:
Unfortunately we understand that our block of Main St will be completely closed down from Tues 12/1 through at least Thurs 12/3 for road grinding / paving work. Hopefully the street will reopen by the weekend. In the meantime, people can still park in the lot bordered by Morgan / Main / the old bus terminal and walk across Main St. Or people can also access the rear entrance to our parking lot via Duke St (directly across Duke St from Peabody).
