Best part of Amber Parcher’s article on the Taste of Wheaton is the great news that Marchone’s, and presumably other nearby spots, did a booming business on Sunday, outside of the festival. Hopefully that will carry forward. Mrs. Me and I were in line behind Amber (and Mr. Amber?) when she interviewed David Kessler, waiting for fish pies. Oh the exciting brush with MoCo celebrity! Alas, no photographic evidence.
Also in the Gazette, maybe good news about developer interest in various Wheaton sites. It could be fabulous news, depending on deal specifics, future rents, environmental reviews (!) and so forth.
Fire Station 1, the long (long long long…long) awaited brew pub in Silver Spring on Georgia in the former fire house, is finally ready to open, probably next week, according to CityPaper (and h/t JUTP). Menu somehow manages to be both too big and too generic, but we keep our hopes tentatively high.
