News 'N Notes - Catching Up Edition

Work has been incredibly busy the past couple weeks, hence the lack of posts during that time. I’ve still managed to cobble together a few miscellaneous Silver Spring tidbits, so here you go…

- The old Storehouse Furniture location at Georgia and Ellsworth will be the home of the Washington area's first Marimekko store.


The 4,000-square-foot space at 8519 Georgia Ave. (formerly Storehouse Furniture) will house 120 bolts of Marimekko fabric as well as housewares and clothing.

Here's the website for the new store.

- Our old friend of "Tour de Montgomery" fame is back with a follow-up post. Feel free to comment.

- Silver Spring has 300 active gang members. We've even got 12-year-olds stabbing people. I've personally killed way more gang members than that over the past week or so, but of course that was playing Crackdown on my Xbox...

- If you want to see traffic around Silver Spring, Google Maps now has an overlay which displays traffic data. Here it is for Silver Spring. If you want a live view of traffic conditions, you can also view the traffic camera images on the county's website.



- Here's an interesting old postcard for the Villa Rosa restaurant, which was once located at Fenton St. and Ellsworth Dr., now the heart of the "revitalized" Silver Spring.



- Well, it looks like the predicted protests over Discovery’s “Jesus’ Tomb” show never materialized, although the security is still at a higher-than-normal level. Personally I didn’t watch the show, though it is sitting on my DVR awaiting viewing.

- I'm sure everyone's already seen this by now, but the Post had an article on the conversion of the old Silver Spring firehouse to a Hook & Ladder brewpub.

Have a great weekend.

Wow! Wish I had had that postcard of the Villa Rosa restaurant to use in my book, "Historic Silver Spring."

Regarding the "Tour de Montgomery" guy: Why bother commenting? He's adding nothing to any discussion of DTSS development, trolling, and feeling important when people comment on his blog. And the fact that SS bloggers are linking to him makes him feel that much more special. Who cares if he didn't like Silver Spring? Would anyone have ever seen his blog if he didn't write about a negative experience?

That Finnish stuff is ugly.
Also, I can swear in Finnish.
And did you know that Finnish is actually more closely related to Hungarian than to any other language in the region it's located in?

I LOVE Marimekko! The fabrics are gorgeous. I do, however, wish that the stuff was a bit cheaper.
