Silver Spring News 'N Notes

- The MoCo smoking ban has resulted in a boom for the restaurant business. Tell that to Dietle's Tavern.

- Does anyone have any information on Piratz Tavern besides what little is available on the website? People seem to be excited about this new bar but seem to know very little about it.

- Here's some more photos of the Sligo Creek flood damage. Speaking of which, why is the stretch of Sligo Creek Parkway between Piney Branch and Wayne still closed? I drove down it the day after the floods and the road seemed fine at that point. It was closed the following day and remains so as of this morning. It is particularly annoying to me as it is part of my commuting route.

Well, sir, there's nothing on earth like a genuine, bona fide, electrified, six-car monorail!

This guy
thinks Silver Spring should build a monorail. Who is he, Lyle Lanley? (via Just up the Pike)
