Silver Spring News 'N Notes

I tried that once, it don't work. You get four guys fighting over who's gonna be Mr. Black. Since nobody knows anybody else, nobody wants to back down. So forget it, I pick. Be thankful you're not Mr. Yellow.

- Montgomery Blair students now get color coded badges and lanyards to indicate what their status is at the school. There are so many things wrong with this. Who wants to be branded as a freshman and/or ESOL student? Or as a member of the science magnet? (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

Of course, sometimes you don't need to be color-coded for people to know you're White & Nerdy.

- Piratz Tavern gets its first semi-official review from the Diamondback Online. If Piratz wants to enhance their decor, they ought to be bidding on this. UPDATE: This review is a modified version of the review that appears in the Silver Spring Voice. The Voice version also includes photos.

Yeah yeah but "Mr. Brown", that's little too close to "Mr. Shit".

The Voice reviewed Piratz Tavern this month. Sara Wald is a writer for the Voice and a UM students. She wrote the story for the Voice and then revamped it for the Diamondback (with permission from the Voice). Here's a link to the Voice story:

Good blog, BTW.

Speaking of reviews, I thought Resrvoir Dogs was a really over-rated movie. Why do people think this Tarantino guy is so great?

I'd go along with Wald's review. Our waiter last night was very friendly, but forgetful in a way that suggested it was his first night waiting tables. The cutlery has improved, though: steak knives were large and sharp. Food quality was just right for the price -- $100 plus tip for a table of four, including a round of surprisingly good wine. A work in progress, for sure, but we'll be back in a little while. Matey.
