Interesting...turns out it's really more of a Wing Hub/Maggie's hybrid.
Thanks, mtureck for linking to Carole Sugarman's article in Bethesda Magazine. I was catching up on the City Paper's Young & Hungry blog
and found Stephanie Haven's take
on the "rebranding" of Wing Hub.
The switchover, first reported by Bethesda magazine, will mean more than a name change. Maggie's will remain a sports bar, just one that Trilling hopes will be more accessible to women. It will have the same wings as Wing Hub but several new additions, like New York-style pizza and a tiki bar on the patio. “So many girls I know wouldn’t come in more than once or twice a month,” says Trilling. “I asked them if they’d come in if I changed the restaurant name to Maggie’s, and their instant reaction is, ‘Absolutely.’”
The name is an homage to a Tenleytown pizzeria called Maggie's, first opened in the 1950s, that Trilling's father owned from 1964 to 1979. After he sold it, the original Maggie's continued to operate until 1998. “Playboy had them as the No. 1 one bar in the country for a ridiculous number of years," Trilling says. (Although he probably shouldn't tell that to the women he's trying to attract to the restaurant.)
