TBD has been running for a month or two and Patch is even newer than that I think. And Patch already has a bunch of Wheaton-specific stories up, including a half-review, half-news feature on Sergio’s Place, and also a rave review of Dusit Thai. Patch also has restaurant listings with good information, though I would disagree with their description of crappy-strip-mall-ensconsed, neon-and-formica-rife Dusit’s atmosphere as “elegant” — nothing wrong with being in a crappy strip mall, in fact that can be a very good sign, but let’s call a dive a dive.
TBD seems to be mostly aggregating other blog/web content, for Wheaton-area stories anyway. Patch posted a huge amount of Wheaton content yesterday, will be interesting to see daily/weekly volume going forward. Could be a great source of local info. Would also love to know more about their business plans..
