An anonymous reader sent me some tidbits on Piratz Tavern and a retailer that is considering setting up shop in Silver Spring:
Yesterday, I saw a man leaving Piratz Tavern and decided to say hello. He said that they hope to be open by the end of the month and they have been floored with how much interest their is in the restaurant. I guess people keep knocking on the door asking to see inside. I can't wait until it's open.Anthropologie... (shudder) You will never find me within a hundred yards of that place. However, there are probably 1,000 women at Discovery Communications who would be there on a daily basis.
Finally (this is a biggie) one of my best friends from college called me last night to say she is coming down from Philly for work next week. She works in the market development dept. of Urban Outfitters. She said they are looking at a space in Silver Spring that is getting redeveloped with Bed, Bath, & Beyond as an anchor. An Urban Outfitters would be pretty sweet. They also are the parent company of Anthopologie, which would be cool I guess, but they don't have guy stuff.
