Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge, a hot spot for chocolate and art lovers that’s gained fans since opening in 2007 on the corner of 36th and Old Seward Highway, is opening a new, additional store downtown. To celebrate, the second Modern Dwellers will host its grand opening simultaneously with the store’s first First Friday, held Feb. 5, which will feature silver and gem jewelry made by local artist Meg Allen. The new store is located at 423 G St., across from Darwin’s bar in the space formerly occupied by Alaska Glass Gallery. The store will open at 10 a.m. Feb. 5, and the First Friday reception begins at 6 p.m. For more information about the new store, call 677-9985, or e-mail [email protected].
