  • Trinidad Market & Deli Shut Down

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:22 pm
    You can't read the date on the closure sign (below), but this happened within the last week. Apparently the cops went in first and briefly closed Trinidad Market and Deli, AKA Mike's, (which is WIDELY rumored to sell both Scooby Snax and Bizarro [$10 for a small bag], synthetic marijuana drugs related to K2 and Spice). Then DCRA and the Department of Health went in to conduct an inspection. Here's where the story gets really weird. I'm told that the employee who was on duty during the second inspection left the keys on the counter and disappeared out the rear door mid-inspection. Nothing odd…

  • if there's one person you should vote for this year, it's jill ortman-fouse

    23 Oct 2014 | 7:17 am
    I started getting involved in Montgomery County school issues about a year and a half ago, and through that I got to know Jill Ortman-Fouse, who's one of the hardest-working people I have the privilege to know. She's been a tireless advocate for Montgomery County schools, not just for her own children, but for the thousands of kids and families who don't get a voice in school matters. Montgomery County is one of the richest counties in the United States, but we also have growing poverty, and more students on free and reduced lunch than the DC Public Schools have students. MCPS is becoming…
  • sharrows tell drivers to share the road with cyclists, except when that road is a state highway

    17 Oct 2014 | 9:10 am
    Sharrows are great for streets where there isn't room for a traditional bike lane. But sometimes, they're used as a way to avoid putting in a bike lane, which is bad for bicyclists and drivers alike. New sharrows on Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring. Photo by Paul Meyer.Last week, sharrows appeared on Georgia Avenue between Sligo and Wayne avenues in downtown Silver Spring. It's one of eighteen state highways in Maryland where cyclists are allowed to ride in the right lane, and the sharrows let drivers know to look out for them. Reader Paul Meyer tweeted this photo of the lane markings and…
  • how the department of liquor control is like the public library

    6 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Say what you will about Montgomery County's liquor laws, but one benefit is that you can search the inventory of available beverages at all 30 locations in the county via their website. You can see all of the products available in the county, and what each Department of Liquor Control store has in stock.I was thinking about making an old fashioned. Screenshots from my computer.After a few minutes of clicking around, I realized that the interface felt really familiar. So I visited the Montgomery County Public Library's site, where you can also see what books are available, and which libraries…
  • montgomery county wants to turn this dying strip mall into the next mosaic district

    2 Oct 2014 | 7:47 am
    Over the past few years, retail developer Edens has transformed a gritty wholesale market and a suburban multiplex into trendy retail destinations. Their next redevelopment project, a dying strip mall in Burtonsville, might be a little more challenging. One of the few remaining businesses at Burtonsville Crossing. Photo by the author.Burtonsville Crossing, on Route 29 in eastern Montgomery County, has been hemorrhaging tenants since a highway bypass was built behind it in 2006 and is now 70% vacant. This week, Edens, which has owned the strip mall since 2003, signed an agreement with the…
  • family dinner at zpizza (sponsored post)

    18 Sep 2014 | 6:09 am
    If you follow Just Up The Pike on Facebook or Twitter (and you should!), you've probably heard me talk about my favorite restaurants in Silver Spring, places like Urban Butcher and Denizens Brewing Company. But I haven't spent a lot of time at zpizza on Ellsworth Drive, which at 10 years (has it been that long?) in downtown Silver Spring is practically an institution compared to some of these newer places.Started in California in 1986, zpizza (it is spelled lowercase) considers itself the first "chef-inspired pizza chain." It has locations in 15 states and the District of Columbia, as well as…
