- Pete's New Haven Style Apizza has announced that its new Silver Spring location will officially open for business this this Wednesday at 11AM. They've also posted some photos of their completed kitchen and dining areas as well as a map of their delivery area. You can't go wrong opening a pizza joint these days - Americans love them some pizza.
- The Parks Department has proposed the construction of a downtown Silver Spring dog park in the section of Ellsworth Park immediately adjacent to the current Silver Spring library. You can view the complete proposal here (pdf).
- Curbed DC, a website which generally doesn't acknowledge the existence of Silver Spring, has elicited the usual ignorant anti-Silver Spring vitriol in the comments section of a post reporting on something that is not in Silver Spring:
Granted, the photo chosen to lead off the post is a poor representation of Downtown Silver Spring, though it does have Matthew Lesko in it.
And I've got some bad news for you wanna-be hipster Silver Spring haters currently residing in imaginary places like "NoMa" or "The Atlas District": once your children start approaching kindergarten age, you'll be moving out here with us and will learn to appreciate what we have.
