It's increasingly rare to find an authentic neighborhood bar these days, particularly in this area. The Dietle's Tavern on Seminary Road was definitely one, but that closed after the MoCo smoking ban went into effect.
The Corner Pub in Four Corners definitely fits the description of a neighborhood bar. If you didn't live in Woodmoor or one of other the surrounding communities, you could probably pass it by a hundred times and never know it existed. I don't know exactly when it opened, but it's been there as long as I can remember. You can go to the Corner Pub at noon on a Tuesday and find blue collar types at the bar sucking down beers (Pepco employees, perhaps?).
Well, at least you used to be able to - anyone trying to grab a pizza and a cold one at the Pub today was greeted by a locked door on which this sign was posted:

Former (?) owner Randy Hurowitz today posted the following message on the Pub's Facebook page.
