Silver Spring News 'N Notes

- "Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?" Apparently there are a number of species of snakes in Sligo Creek Park, although I've never seen any of them.

- It appears that the new Silver Spring Downtown website replaced the old "Silver Sprung" site, as entering www.silversprung.com will automatically re-direct you to the former.

- Tickets for the Silverdocs festival at the AFI Silver are on sale now.

- Slate Magazine points out that Silver Spring realator Cynthia Houser's name is an aptronym.

- Since we have been discussing defunct Silver Spring businesses, can anyone tell me where the Luau Hut used to be located, and when it closed down? Thanks! Duh, I know where this was. On Ramsey avenue by where the Ride-On buses stop. What other building could house a "Luau Hut"?
