Johnson's Florist and Garden Center in Tenleytown to close, cites raised rent - Washington TimesSunday, February 11, 2018
American University, to allow the longtime shop to continue operating there.American University has rented the commercial space that Johnson’s occupies at Van Ness Street and Wisconsin Avenue NW for the last decade.On Jan. 3, the shop — which employs about 50 people and sells a wide variety of items including house plants and floral arrangements — posted a notice saying the university had increased the rent, forcing it to close.“They increased the rent by about 30 percent,” Johnson’s general manager, John Williams, told The Washington Times.Tenleytown neighbors formed an ad hoc committee to help Johnson’s remain open and requested meetings with AU President Sylvia M. Burwell. On Wednesday night, the committee met with university representatives in what turned into tense, back-and-forth exchanges. Ms. Burwell did not attend the meeting.The verbal exchanges often spun in circles due to a non-disclosure agreement in Johnson’s lease. This was especially clear when Charles Smith, the university’s commercial property manager, said the shop had released information online about its rental negotiations “that wasn’t true.”“It was our understanding that you raised the rent,” said one resident.“I’m not going to get into the specifics,” Mr. Smith replied.When neighbors asked whether the space...

So for Valentine’s Day last year, the 25-year-old La Crosse resident surprised his girlfriend, who lives in Madison, by taking her for a getaway to Eau Claire’s hip Oxbow Hotel. He scored big points with dinner at the boutique hotel’s Lakely Restaurant and champagne delivered to their room. They also had a retro Lakely cocktail or two, which he described as one of the highlights of the visit. “It was a great time and we saw Grammy Award-winning musician Sean Carey of the band Bon Iver playing there that night,” Remiker said. The special dinner-and-stay package included a four-course dinner. For Valentine’s Day 2018, they returned in late January for another visit as part a special Supper Club dinner at the Lakely. On Feb. 14 they plan to see Bon Iver in Milwaukee, which Remiker said is “Eau Claire-related.”This year, th...
