The most romantic place for Dinner in Silver Spring is a small, suptuous italian restaurant called Sergios.

 I just discovered a great Doggie Daycare place for Charlie.  The best part about it, it's only a 3-5 minute drive from my house.  It's Clever Dog.  This is Charlie's 2nd Day there.  He went for the first time on Tuesday. He comes home happy and tired when he's been to Daycare. He can be with other dogs in a pack or he can play with them.  He gets walked every few hours and the staff plays with him.  The place is clean and very spacious.  They have the dogs separated by personality and size. Another cool thing is they have a live NANNY CAM or Doggie … (11 comments)

md: Searching for Sushi in Silver Spring, MD - 08/23/07 04:29 AM

I have finally found the best Sushi in Silver Spring!  I am very picky about my sushi, for years I would drive to Bethesda or have to head up the dreaded (crowded, congested with a traffic light every 1/4 mile) Rockville Pike to have sushi, because there was no place to get it in Silver Spring.  For a while, a sushi place opened up in Downtown Silver Spring, it was, to say the least, horrible sushi and a kinda scary place.  I don't remember the name of it because it was gone in less than a year. 

I was delighted when Whole Foods got Sushi … (4 comments)

md: Silver Spring, Md Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks Connection - 08/18/07 01:24 AM
The song Silver Springs was written by Stevie Nicks.   Legend has it that she got the idea while riding in a limo on the Capitol Beltway after a concert and seeing the sign for the Silver Spring, Maryland Exit.  Die-Hard Silver Springers and native residents will tell you they hate it when anyone makes Silver Spring plural.  That extra S drives a lot of us crazy (especially when a public offical makes this FAUX PAS!) if you listen carefully to the song Stevie never uses the plural or the dreaded extra S in the song.  The only place you'll find that extra S is in the … (3 comments)
