There’s more than groceries at Whole Foods, to my surprise! I wasn’t surprised the natural and organic grocery chain offers food and wine classes, but allergy screening testing? Mommy and Me classes? Can it get any better? Actually yes … how about a play area for the kiddies like Wegman’s in Dulles? Still, they’re pretty awesome…
