Silver Spring News 'N Notes

- Can someone explain to me why ever time I go to the Majestic 20, there are dozens of people in the ticket line, yet almost no one using the ticket kiosks? I don't understand why people elect to queue for 10+ minutes when they can easily get their tickets from the machine in a matter of seconds. If you are a kid and don't have a credit card I can understand, but apparently a majority of the adult theatre-going population in Silver Spring is either non-creditworthy or doesn't trust modern technology. I'm not complaining because it means I never have to wait for tickets- I am just trying to comprehend the psychology behind this behavior. (P.S. X-Men: The Last Stand is pretty good.)

- The Quarry House Tavern's jukebox gets high marks in today's Washington Post. I still need to check out the "new" Quarry House one of these days.

- One of the last (the last?) Little Taverns is for sale. Maybe someone can buy it and replace the one that was torn down on Georgia Avenue...
