GEORGETOWN—A Farmers & Fishers bartender is among the plaintiffs of a class-action suit filed yesterday against MRP Realty in connection with the Potomac River flood damages earlier this week, according to the Washington Business Journal. The suit has been filed "on behalf all employees, retailers, restaurants and businesses that have lost or will lose income or revenue as a result of the destructive flooding." [WBJ]

EXPANSIONWIRE—Alexandria's cheese-and-wine shop Cheesetique outgrew its original location three years ago and now it's expanding out to a second location. ARLnow reports that Cheesetique is opening in Shirlington this fall. A call to the original store confirms that it is indeed a second outpost, not a relocation or a takeover of the Curious Grape operations, as some had apparently believed. [ARLnow, EaterWire]

Soft opening is tonight. [PoP]
