Thank you all for your support of and love for Route One Fun!

Cheeky’s Vintage Holds Hyattsville Grand Opening this Saturday!
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.

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!

This touring hunk of artistic love is making a two-day stop at Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center in Hyattsville on October 9th and 10th.
