Yelp and Strathmore Music Hall!

Just saw this nice review for the music and events of Strathmore Music Hall. What acts/ performances have you seen recently at that venue?

Bethesda Green Happy Hour: Ri Ra Irish Pub

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.


Westmooreland Berry Farm and Orchard: Cherries and Biodegradable Bags!

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


Where to Watch England v Ireland in Bethesda?

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!


High End Hotel Coming to Bethesda

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!

Rock Bottom Bethesda Tapping of “Summer Ale” Tomorrow 7pm!


Just saw that there is a very nice “Summer Ale” event being held at Rock Bottom Brewery tomorrow. Geoff, the brewer, describes the ale this way — should be a fun event:

Summer Ale is light amber in color with a light body.  It has a pound and a half of hops per barrel.  All the hops are loaded in the back end: toward the end of boil, post boil, and post fermentation.  Bright citrus and floral hop notes dominate the aroma and flavor.  You’ll be expecting that mouth puckering bitterness to follow, but, it doesn’t.  It finishes with light caramel malt sweetness with just a little bitterness to balance.  It is a unique and interesting.  I hope you enjoy this first of the summer time beers.

Just wanted to remind you that on Oct 5th 2001 Bethesda Green will be holding their Second Annual Gala recognizing Bethesda Magazine‘s Green Award Winners. The event will be at the Round House Theatre in Bethesda!
