Monday Morning Notes

Monday mornings are much more bearable after a Redskins win...

- The Mica Condos, still struggling to clear out their inventory, have a new sales gimmick: they are hosting "football open houses" on weekends. It looks like this past June's crab feast wasn't as successful as they had hoped. Where do you watch the game, exactly? In the lobby? Presumably, you will be pestered the entire game about purchasing a unit. Exactly who is this supposed to appeal to?



I hear they've even got Gil pitching condos over at the Mica these days.



"Ohhh, Gil really needs this sale!"

If you can put up with this and already live nearby, you at least ought to show up and snag some free food and drinks.

- Saturday's Wall Street Journal has an article on Silver Spring resident Joseph Ngoupou, who works at the World Bank while also serving as the chief of Koupa Ngagnou, a village in Cameroon.

- Poor Piratz Tavern. It finally opens but is forced to close the next day due to an "electrical emergency". They are scheduled to open again on Tuesday. [Thanks to reader Nate for the tip]

I dined at the Tavern on Friday night. At some point soon, I'll be posting my mini-review.

Sligo -- Appropriately, I stopped by the Mica and grabbed some cookies (soft and chewy!), wings, and a soda on my walk home. I bought at the Silverton and have had issues with Tommy Hart (the salesman for both the Silverton and Mica). Tommy recognized me and asked what I was doing there, knowing I had already purchased at the Silverton, and I told him I stopped by for the free food. He smirked and walked away. I have Tommy and Trip.

Sligo, when you post your Piratz review, I'd be interested in finding out if they're eventually planning to offer takeout. (We've got a toddler at home, so takeout frequently works better for us.) The PT wasn't offering it over the weekend (bummer), so I wondered if this was only because they are just opening, or if its a permanent decision.

Does anyone know anything at all about the quality of the condos at the corner of Bonifant and Fenton? Looks like a nice building and there's a for sale sign up in a rather unattractive looking ground floor unit. Still, might be a good buy. The owner puts it at $379 though, which is a bit much.

Was there anyone else there? Where exactly in the building were they showing the games?

urbannomad said...

twoste, the building looks nice from what I've seen but the units are very small. The "bedrooms" look more like closets or small offices. Not to mention the units for sale in there have been on the market for a very long time... which could be a plus if they are willing to negotiate the price. Check out ziprealty.com for more info on them. Personally, I'd wait before buying in DTSS because we are about to see a huge amount of inventory coming onto an already weak market.

Anyone know how much the Mico condos are going to cost (roughly)?

Sligo said...

They've been on sale for quite awhile. Now they are from the 200's but I belive they USED to be from the 300's...

Terry said...

I'm currently renting at Summit Hills. Prices will need to drop a wee bit more before I'll pay for a condo that's smaller than my current (essentially rent controlled, thanks Mont. Cty) apartment.

Piratz is open and according to a friend that had lunch there, the food is good and the ambience is entertaining.

Elliot Tobin aka Sligo.......next you will complain that the sun setting in the west is an incoveniece to you.....

Sligo said...

A. Who the hell is Elliot Tobin? It sure isn't me.

B. Was I complaining about anything being an inconvenience to me?

I second the comment about Tommy the salesman and have come across many such opinions about him on this and other blogs. I've seen him misrepresent facts freely, is incredibly unprofessional in his correspondence and treats his clients or even potential customers like he is doing them a favor by dealing with them. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of reasons for the ill-will towards Mica is thanks to having to deal with him.

Maybe he treated you poorly because all you seem to do is complain like you do here. He probably was sick and tired of you like the rest of us here listening to your sorry complaints. Wouldnt surprise me at all.....
