- In a comment on my previous post, someone noted that D.C. mayoral candidate Adrian Fenty complained that D.C. residents are forced to look at the Silver Spring signs at the district border. Anyone have more detail on this (or a link to the exact quote)?
- There was some discussion of the service (or lack thereof) at Mandalay in yesterday's washingtonpost.com chat with food critic Tom Sietsema. I've never personally had a problem with the service there, but even if I did, the food would still make it worth going. This comment caught my eye:
As wonderful as Mandalay may have been on that one occasion, that does not excuse their POLICY of turning off the lights and blasting "Closing Time" at 5 minutes before their posted closing time.I've never been there at closing, so I don't know if they are saying that someone comes on and says "closing time" or they actually play the Semisonic song of the same title. I hope the former is true, because the latter would be really lame, even at some cheesy college bar.
- Thanks to $500K of federal money, the south entrance to the Metro station will finally be opened. (Its hard to walk around the corner!) Speaking of the Metro station, it also has new bike posts.
- MoCo will be deploying more cops in Silver Spring in response to an increased number of killings and robberies in certain parts of the county.
