downtown silver spring: Silver Spring Laundromats - You've come a Long Way, Baby! - 01/12/12 04:04 PM
I haven’t been in a laundromat in a long, long, long time, maybe 12 to 15 years ago. 
The last time I needed to use a laundromat I went to the one near the corner of University Blvd & Piney Branch Road  and also the one in the 16th Street Strip Mall that was on the level under the McDonalds there.  They were both crowded places and kinda dingy and dark.  There were 2 different sizes of washers and dryers that took coins.  I couldn’t wait to get my laundry done and get out.
I recently went into the new Tropicana Laundromat on Fenton Street to wash some real bulky items … (1 comments)

In Silver Spring, every year we have a summer attraction that causes a lot of excitment.  During Shark Week the Discovery Building has an ginormous inflatable shark swimming through it.  It is quite a sight to see in the skyline at the corner of Colesville Road and Georgia Avenue at the heart of Downtown Silver Spring.  The Shark has been nicknamed "Chompie".  I heard a rumor on Twitter today, which was confirmed by Silver Spring Patch, that Silver Spring's Jaws will not be in the sky this summer.  Apparently Chompie is going to be given a rest this year, but the big … (1 comments)

downtown silver spring: Gil's Restaurant - Worth the Visit - A New Place Just on the Outskirts of Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland - 03/09/11 12:59 PM
There is a new and "improved" corner in Silver Spring.  Gil's Restaurant has opened @ the corner of Silver Spring Avenue and Piney Branch Road.  It's the corner store at the end of  the old strip shopping center on Piney Branch Road near the  intersection of Dale and Piney Branch.   
I hardly recognized this place.   It's was the site of Matchu Pitchu restaurant and then something like Lembada's (not sure of either spelling), just remember the restaurants there before were "scruffy", beat up looking, raucous at night and not very appetizing. 
The place has been painted, spruced up and there is new landscape in the front.  The … (1 comments)
