From the fine folks at the Uptown Deli:
Join us for Candle Lighting, songs, warm Potato Latkes and Hanukah Cookies. A Traditional Hanukah menu will be offered all week with Roast Chicken and herbs, Brisket of beef with gravy, Maple Glazed Salmon, Potato Pancakes with Sour Cream and Applesauce.
All eight days we will be playing “
Spin Win or Donate”. Where a child will spin the dreidel, if they get a Gimel or Heh they get a Hanukah Cookie, a Nun gets them a candy and a shin they have to donate any monetary amount to which will be pooled toward a local children’s charity.
Just received some very interesting information regarding a commercial opportunity on Rubgy road in Bethesda just off Woodmont Ave. The lot for sale has commercial/office/retail possibilities and plans for a 16,000 sq foot project. Your Bethesda Actually team will take some pictures of the spot in question and post them in the coming days, it will be interesting to consider what would be an interesting and fruitful use of the space.
PS Business people – if you are interested in purchasing the lot give me a call or drop me an email!
Our reporting at Bethesda Actually is generally upbeat community news, but crime can impact the community as a whole and I wanted to flag this case – in part because it took place at Bethesda Metro station.
David Glenn Bonett, 23, from Mt. Airy, Md., was sentenced on Monday to 30 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release. The former Montgomery College student was charged with distributing drugs – namely Oxycodone and marijuana – and selling firearms without a license. More of this story here.
Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School beat Bowie 4-1 at UMBC’s Retriever Stadium last weekend, taking the top spot in Class 4A, in the Maryland high school girls state championship.
Well played girls! Read who won in the other classes here.
I’d never been to a Taylor Gourmet eatery before the latest one came to Bethesda, and I’ve finally gotten around to giving it a try. What can I say? I had a chicken hoagie and it was absolutely fantastic! This is a great addition to our town and, even though it’s a bit more pricey that other subs and sandwiches, definitely makes up for it in “gourmet”!
All hoagies are named after popular spots in Philadelphia, where founders Casey Patten and David Mazza come from. Names include Island Avenue, Penn Square and Art Museum. In fact, the story of how Taylor Gourmet came about is pretty inspirational. Here’s an excerpt:
Casey Patten and David Mazza, young Philadelphia natives with Italian roots, had been searching for a hoagie that would satisfy their tastes since their move to Washington D.C. in 2002. After discovering there was no place to purchase a hoagie with the true Italian quality they were accustomed to, the two decided it was time to start traveling, researching, and tasting in hopes of opening their own version of a Philly-style Italian deli. Read on!
You can find it at: 7280 Woodmont Avenue (301) 951-9001.
What a stormy night we had here in Bethesda! I woke up at about 2pm to the sound of torrential rain and high winds. Fortunately things seem quite calm this morning and I did not see too much damage on my way in to the office. Hope everyone managed to escape unscathed!
Friends, looks like Bethesda Green have picked a super location for their first Thursday happy hour in December. The event will be held at Redwood (hurrah!) and should be a lot of fun. Here are the details:
Lighting the Way to a Greener Community!
Kick off the holiday season with an evening of casual conversation and networking with Bethesda Green and Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light. We’ll mark the second night of Hanukkah — the Jewish festival of lights — by sharing the extraordinary work local congregations are doing to save energy and go green.
Help raise funds for Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light, which helps local congregations of many traditions to save energy, go green, and respond to climate change. And support Bethesda Green as we enter our fourth year of lighting the way towards a local model for sustainable living.
* Meet Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light Director Joelle Novey, and learn from green team leaders in Bethesda’s diverse congregations
* Enjoy complimentary vegetarian appetizers
* Happy Hour drink specials
Contribution: $10 at the door will support the good work of Bethesda Green and Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light to light the way towards a greener community.
Redwood will also contribute 10% of sales.
Redwood features a seasonal menu rooted in American Tradition, showcasing mid-Atlantic ingredients, with organic and sustainable produce whenever possible.
Just saw this – perhaps Bethesda Green will hold a meeting at the same time to discuss alternatives to Nuclear power?
Friends, we will be holding a seminar on 203k loans at our Weichert office in Bethesda on November 20th. For those of you not familiar with this program the short version is:
