Has the pandemic made you a cocktail-making connoisseur, spending evenings getting familiar with spirits, liqueurs and maraschino cherries? Spiritually feeling the head nods, I claim you as my people. As such, you may have also found yourselves scanning your “barware” collection only to find sippy cups and hardy Ikea-type tumblers among the crowd. Again, I feel you. You put in all this work to create a delicious Whiskey Sour or Old-Fashioned only to have it rest in a chalice unworthy of its weight. I understand your complicated emotions. Which is why I was tickled to learn that Cheeky’s Vintage – full of eclectic bar, table and kitchenware – will be having its grand opening this Saturday (10/2) at its new location in Hyattsville!

It’s the home of my favorite thrift!”, I responded. “No, you do not know Lewisdale,” she said, meeting my internalized side-eye with a deserved, external one. And Yolanda Rivera-Quintanilla was right.
