  1. Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and the County Council are investigating the county’s ability to force lower fees charged to restaurants by food delivery apps, such as Uber Eats, Grubhub, and DoorDash: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/montgomery-county/food-delivery-app-fees/
  2. Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot has lent his support to a Montgomery County Council request that the state extend the alcohol delivery and carryout provisions allowed during the COVID-19 emergency. The council made the request, which was signed by all nine councilmembers, in a May 22 letter to Franchot (D) and Gov. Larry Hogan (R).
  3. Area nonprofit Silver Spring Cares has teamed up with a group of Silver Spring/Takoma Park restaurants to provide meals to needy area residents. To fund the effort and help to support the restaurants’ employees, SSC last week launched a Community Connection Go Fund Me page, according to Heather Foley, SSC’s executive director.
  4. The points per game say it all: 2003-2004: 21.0 2004-2005: 20.8 2005-2006: 26.9 2006-2007: 28.5 2007-2008: 25.7 2008-2009: 22.8 2009-2010: 28.2 2010-2011: 25.6 2011-2012: 22.6 2012-2013: 28.7 2013-2014: 27.4 2014-2015: 24.2 2015-2016: 21.4
  5. The former location of Ethio Express Grill at 952 Sligo Ave. in Silver Spring opens today, Feb. 8, as Debab Restaurant under new owners. Ash Edossa and his wife Abebech “Emu” Taddese took over the business in January: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/business/debab-restaurant-to-open-in-ethio-express-location/
  6. In this post, I justifiably poked fun at the sports media for proclaiming every "next great thing" as "The [X] Jordan" - Harold Miner was "Baby Jordan," Tamir Goodman was "Jewish Jordan," etc. Len Bias could have been the next Michael Jordan, and was quite possibly the only player I've ever seen in my life who was *that good*. Like when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded, I remember exactly where I was, and exactly what I was doing, when I heard the news of Len Bias's tragic death - the two events happened only six-months apart. To young people today: I realize it's prematur
  7. @DonRocks, you probably already know this, but a Montgomery County player just signed with Clemson: "Bresee Signs Letter of Intent To Play at Clemson" by Joe Yasharoff on mymcmedia.com
  8. I know relatively little about Dwayne Haskins - I didn't realize he went to Bullis High School in Potomac, and had originally committed to Maryland: May 15, 2015 - "Dwayne Haskins Commits to Maryland, Targets Recruits To Join 'The Movement'" by Tyler Donohue on bleacherreport.com Oct 11, 2015 - "How Will Randy Edsall's Firing Impact Haskins and the Rest of Maryland's 2016 Recruiting Class?" by Brandon Parker on washingtonpost.com Jan 18, 2016 - "4-Star Maryland QB Dwayne Haskins Decommits, Flips Pledge" by Daniel Martin on nbcsports.com Bullis is no Churchill when it comes to a
  9. The Koiner Farm in downtown Silver Spring has been granted the county’s first conservation easement for urban agriculture. The easement, in partnership with the Maryland Environmental Trust, permanently protects the one-acre from ever being developed: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/nonprofits/koiner-farm-granted-conservation-easement-agriculture/
  10. Grammy-award winning trumpeter Arturo Sandoval will headline the 16th annual Silver Spring Jazz Festival, according to an announcement from the Silver Spring Arts & Entertainment District. The free festival will be held Saturday, Aug. 24 from 3-10 p.m. on two stages, with performances by festival cofounder Marcus Johnson, The Eric Byrd Trio, Paul Carr and The Real Jazz Ambassadors, and others: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/county-news/sandoval-headline-silver-spring-jazz-festival/
  11. Olironstomach, Gubeen, and I went out to Schmankerl Stube Bavarian Restaurant in Hagerstown for an over the top German luncheon. We preordered their Knusperige Schweinshaxe, a whole pork shank, slow roasted so the skin is crispy and the meat inside is fall off the bone delicious. First off, the restaurant is very classic- from the waitress' outfit to the German music to the faded 1970s-80's Bavarian tourism posters. We started with 1 liter & 1/2 liter mugs of Spaten lager and tried some appetizers. The Wurst sampler was really good, particularly the Weisswurst. We also had a plate of pickl
  12. Chestertown Have a non food-related event to attend this weekend in Chestertown, MD and wondered whether anyone has any good haunts out there....I suspect that most people heading to the Eastern Shore from the DC region, when asked about great food or restaurant recommendations, would recommend Cantler's or Mike's or another Annapolis/Kent Island area hangout. Since we're only traveling from Annapolis to Chestertown, not very far really, I thought it would be nice to grab a bite out there and make an afternoon of it. Anyone have any good recommendations in town? Thanks!
  13. Takoma Trukgarten, Takoma Park’s annual craft beer, wine and food festival, will be held this Saturday, June 1, from noon to 5 p.m.: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/entertainment/takoma-trukgarten-festival-set-for-saturday/
  14. Mt. Airy's Black Ankle Vineyards, one of Maryland’s best—and best known—wineries is owned and operated by a couple who live in the North Hills of Sligo Creek neighborhood of Silver Spring: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/business/one-marylands-top-wineries-owned-silver-spring-couple/
  15. Frostburg The +1 and I will be spending a (hopefully relaxing) weekend at the Savage River Lodge, conveniently located near Frostburg, MD, in mid-September. They have a restaurant attached to the Lodge that I've never heard boo about. Anybody care to comment on the lodge restaurant? And, even if you have no comment on it, any thoughts on places to eat in Frostburg? A search of chowhound revealed a 6 day old reference to a "mexican place on Main St." and a 2 year old reference to an "Italian place half block off main street." Wine lists are totally unimportant to us, and cost isn't particular

  17. This is sort of like the Northern Snakehead in reverse. "Maryland's Blue Crabs Reportedly Invade Spanish Waters" by Lillian Reed on baltimoresun.com
  18. One player who may not belong on this list, but was an *amazing* finisher given his physical attributes was Muggsy Bogues. I mentioned somewhere that I saw him play for the DC team in the 1983 McDonald's Capital Classic (click on "About," then "Final Scores" for some fun pictures), and he was the MVP in leading the Metro All-Stars to a two-point victory over the US All-Stars. Now, that does not a pro make, and it certainly doesn't put him on any all-time Best Finishers list, but it did give me a fairly intimate view of his incredible driving capabilities - he was like this little black dot, tw
  19. I just started two new forums: Colleges and High Schools, which are only visible to members (just for a little extra member-privacy). I'm hopeful that this will bring our membership closer together through common life experiences. We can even start a "Military Brat" thread for those of you who were shuttled around during your youth. I went to Springbrook, in Silver Spring, MD - yep, I'm a native Washingtonian. Any other Blue Devils here?
  20. Dunbar (Baltimore) has produced Muggsy Bogues, Sam Cassell, Kurk Lee, Reggie Lewis, Reggie Williams, David Wingate, Skip Wise, Keith Booth, and Keith Dozier. Please continue listing non-basketball alums from Dunbar - this isn't supposed to be a basketball thread; but it's a fine place to start. The school (like many others) is named after the esteemed African-American poet, Paul Laurence Dunbar.
  21. Most of us know him as "the chef at Grapeseed who makes your hand disappear when you shake his," but in his previous life - which now must seem an eternity ago, Jeff played for one of the most legendary high school football teams in the history of the Washington, DC area, the dynastic Seneca Valley Screaming Eagles of Germantown, MD, who hold a record 12 Maryland State High School Football Championships, even though the school opened fairly recently in 1974. During Heineman's time at Seneca Valley, they won the Class A State Championship his freshman and sophomore years, 1979-1980 and 1980-198
  22. I've been heavily into podcasts lately. One of my favorites is Radio Lab and this story blew me away. I had never heard of Henrietta (Henrietta Lacks), but evidently, there's a best-selling book about her life and HBO will soon premier a movie based on her life starring Oprah. In a nutshell, it's the story of scientists trying to make human cells live and reproduce outside the body. They failed over and over again until they got a hold of Henrietta's cells from a cervical cancer biopsy. The resulting "HeLa" cells marked the beginning of BioTech by serving as the catalyst for all kinds of
  23. Astro Lab Brewing announced the brewpub will hold its grand opening this Friday, Oct. 19, 2018 from 4 p.m. to midnight at its location at 8216 Georgia Avenue: https://www.sourceofthespring.com/business/astro-lab-brewing-grand-opening-set-friday/
