Lina's Diner & Bar officially opens Tuesday in the former Piratz Tavern in Downtown Silver Spring: "The inspiration for Lina’s comes from his childhood experience going to a diner in New York City in the Meatpacking District that he said, “just blew my mind, it was such a cool place. You were seated next to transvestites, prostitutes, business people. It was open 24 hours a day. It was really kind of what I guess New York was in the 80s and 90s.” https://www.sourceofthespring.com/silver-springs-newest-restaurant-officially-opens-next-week/
