  1. Bethesda Magazine is reporting that the raw bar at Black's will be replaced with a fish market a la Black Salt. The article also mentions a Black Salt pop up, for a few days while Black Salt is closed for renovations.
  2. When I first read the headlines for this it made it sounds like "Bethesda" was purchased, not the game company. Don--Was that what you were going for with your post?
  3. Gentleman Jim's has been around as Gentleman Jim's since 1970 as Gentleman Jim's and from the 1940's in DC as the Cavalier (according to their website). They are known for their square "Maryland Style Pizza" (like Ledo's). Unlike Ledo's, their pies are actually square and not rectangles. The crust is a bit flaky and the sauce is sweet. Their "secret" is Swiss cheese (supposedly you can get mozzarella or provolone by request). Last night we tried it for the first time and we were skeptical, but it was really good (if not different). All three of us really enjoyed it and only were able to
  4. Weekly drops from Other Half (which is coming to DC soon in a big way). Priced the same as at the brewery.
  5. Somehow, all of a sudden, there are two of the best beer shops in the DMV within a 5 minute drive of each other. Downtown Crown Wine and Beer at the new Crown is now the "OG" of good Montgomery County beer selection, including weekly drops from Other Half. They also get many more unicorn exclusives. The newcomer, which is about a mile or two away is On The Vine. On The Vine is pretty new, maybe less than a year old and is on the ground level of new apartment complex (across the street from "Dunkin'"). Their selection is impressive and I think for the time being prices are a bit better tha
  6. The DC Branch of my office is pretty much across the street. I don't spend much time there, but when I realized this place was a Szechuan specialist I had to give it a try. Too bad, that was at the height of the pandemic and they were closed. The last time I did a tour at the DC office they were open and I finally got to try something. I had bean sprouts with chicken. I had never seen this on a menu and asked about it. May said it was very good. I asked for it "Jah La", which means extra spicy and she laughed and knew that I knew what I wanted. The dish did not disappoint. It was a pit
  7. The former location in the Kentlands is being replaced by a Popeye's: "Love that Chicken!" (Source--The MoCo Show)
  8. On Lombard Street in Baltimore there were at different times several competitors in the same block, so I guess Marc isn't worried about being to close to Brooklyn.

    Ceiling Fans

    So we went with Hunter, and yes, I know that Hunter owns Casablanca, but Casablanca is supposed to be higher end. For our purposes the Hunter fans have been good. They are virtually silent, which is very nice. I also like that fact that 3 years later this thread still had you on your feet with anticipation!
  10. Closed--according to mymcmedia.org. Very sad. One of the DC area's OG bagel shops. Evidently it changed hands from the original owners a few years ago and has never been the same/failed to adapt to modern times and tastes.
  11. Had food delivered through their hood drop, with a drop off location a few doors down from my house. Wife and I each had the oyster mushroom schwarma, daughter had falafel. Everyone was very happy with our selections. I thought the flavors were very good and bright. The pita is amazing. The sandwiches are definitely overstuffed and a full meal.
