-Wheaton doesn't want to be like Silver Spring? I sure as heck don't want Silver Spring to be anything like Wheaton.
Downtown Wheaton merchants would rather keep their ethnic eateries than make room for a Starbucks.Sorry, Wheaton already has TWO Starbucks. Besides, the Post already wrote this article two months ago. Seriously, though, there are some businesses in Wheaton that just deserve to go (and those that don't). There was (is?) this crappy furniture store on Georgia Avenue that for months had a large, presumably professionally printed sign in all the windows that read "GOING OUT FOR BUSINESS SALE". It was obvious that they meant to say "out OF business", yet no one corrected it and that sign must have been up for at least six months. I guess it wasn't going out of/for business that quickly. In general, though, isn't the objective of all sales to "go out for business"?
- Check out the first ever Rock-n-Romp Showcase on Thursday, June 29th at the Quarry House Tavern in downtown Silver Spring.
You will get to see awesome music played by some RnR favorites, have a couple of beers (excellent selection, btw), eat good food and support some fantastic bands who have played or are scheduled to play Rock-n-Romp! Some local lucky few of you may even get to stumble home on foot after the show!The bands Spoils of NW, The Chance, and Greenland will be performing.
A regular Rock-n-Romp event (kids invited) is scheduled for June 25th. Check out this FAQ for more info on RnR. These photos will also probably give you a good idea on what Rock-n-Romp is all about.
