Bethesda Central Farm Market is celebrating Father’s Day June 15-16 and we’re all welcome to join! From the website:
Celebrate Father’s Day at the markets! There will be a Kids Club at both markets where kids can make photo-block gifts for dad. This weekend there will also be music, wine, lots of food, and a special Cook’s Corner at Pike Central where Chef Lynn will be making lamb sliders from 10am-12pm.
See you there!
Just received an interesting note from our friends at Cork & Fork (Bethesda Lane). They are putting together an event that will link the Tour de France bike race with their own “Tour de Vin.” It starts on June 29th and seems quite fun! Here is a little blurb from their annoucement:
Wines of the week… Each week, we will feature wines from the regions of the race with highlighted tastings on SaturdaysThe wines selected for the celebration of 2013 Tour de France went through the arduous test of passing the palate examination of each of the three buyers for Cork & Fork, Dominique, Anna, and Antoinette. We picked one wine from every wine region the Tour will cross, and are planning on adding more to our selection. We are excited to share this selection with you and share also our knowledge of winemaking in France.
More info on this to follow!
Just saw this nice review for the music and events of Strathmore Music Hall. What acts/ performances have you seen recently at that venue?
Just a little addition to our previous post re. Sunday’s book signing at Bethesda Central Farm Market: Bethesda Central Farm Market is located at 7600 Arlington Blvd. at Old Georgetown Road Bethesda, MD 20814. The event takes place Sunday from 10am-12:30pm.
Friends – just a quick reminder that Bethesda Green’s networking happy hour is at Ri Ra Irish Pub on June 6th. Should be fun and interesting.
We received a nice note from a member of the Bethesda Actually community asking us to highlight Westmooreland Berry Farm and Orchard. They are one of the participants in the Bethesda Central Farmers Market and our reader bought some cherries from their stall on Sunday. Two positive things came out of this – one apparently she loved the fruit and two, she was thrilled that Westmooreland Berry Farm uses biodegradable bags for those folks who forget to bring their own bags from home. Thanks for letting us know! Don’t forget to send your Bethesda thoughts to us via email email@example.com
For the soccer fans among you, today features a number of high profile “friendly” games. One of them is the England v Ireland game which kicks off this afternoon. If you are interested in catching the game, one good option could be to visit our friends at the Harp and Fiddle in old Bethesda. They have lots of nice pub grub on the menu and today could be a good day (for those over 21) to have a nice cold beer (just don’t drink and drive!).
If you do make it to the game, and fancy leaving periodic updates in the comments section here that would be appreciated!
I thought that this was an interesting, and encouraging, indication of the local economy here in Bethesda. The Bethesda Court Hotel is slated to become a high end Westin hotel under new plans that the county needs to sign off on. This is the money quote for me:
Stephanie Coppula, a spokeswoman for the Bethesda Urban Partnership, a nonprofit that handles landscaping, maintenance and marketing of downtown. “It seems to be exactly what’s needed,” Hartman said. “The fact that they have a signed hotel is such a good sign for the economy and such a good sign for Bethesda.” County planners are seeing more projects in Bethesda, Krasnow said. “We are definitely seeing a flurry of activity right now,” she said. “Developers see a lot of opportunity for hotel and apartments.”
The whole article is certainly worth a read!
