Magpie lands at West Village this Wednesday

Magpie_boutique 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).

This construction needs to end ASAP


Agreed- for anyone who has ever wished that all our existing overhead utilities could be buried, this project kind of makes you think twice! Can you imagine??
