Beyond two velvet black curtains lies an eclectic-urban hangout with fluorescent lights and fading brick walls. After a grueling start to the week, a Southern comfort menu marries beautifully to a chic city eat-out.
Well Blazers, it's that time of year again. A time when the clouds and winter cold seem a little less bleak, when everyday stresses and "important work" seem inconsequential and everywhere you look people are alive in the warm spirit of a blessed holiday.
Hollywood East Cafe is located in the "Restaurant Row" section of the Wheaton Mall located on Veirs Mill road in Wheaton about a 10 minute drive from Montgomery Blair High School. The restaurant itself seems kind of hidden under a canopy of the mall so it can be kind of tough to find from the outside. The Hollywood East Cafe was not a very big restaurant, it was smaller than it looked but still seemed to fit about 50-60 people on a busy day.
Although they're delicious, most holiday-themed cheesecakes are frighteningly complicated to make. This gingersnap cheesecake makes some simple changes to a classic cheesecake recipe for an easy, delicious and festive dessert.
One great recipe that satisfies summer-yearnings and sugary cravings is the s'mores cookie bars. I love eating s'mores, however I'm not willing to make them in the winter cold. This recipe is the best of both worlds as it lets you enjoy them even during the winter.
With their sultry colors, dim lighting and vibrant Spanish and Mexican art, the restaurant provides you with a piquant dining escape. Their cultural paintings and traditional Spanish and Mexican food come together to craft an experience that is not to be forgotten.
Pacci's Neopolitan Pizzeria in Silver Spring is tucked away in an inconspicuous corner in Downtown Silver Spring, right by the World building. Inside, Pacci's seems pretty small, with a bar, an open pizza oven, a few tables and dim lighting that adds a cozy feel. Their outdoor seating is very spacious. Although it's right on a busy road, it's quiet and tranquil, in part because of the soothing water fountain nearby. Green vines creep up the walls and bad pop music plays in the background. It's the perfect place if you want to try new things or if you are going for something traditional.
With its big firetruck out on display, Fire Station 1, located in Downtown, is sure to get noticed. It has enough space to seat over 300 people and is located in a restored 100-year-old fire house. Although it has fun décor and great service, the food leaves something to be desired.
Tucked behind the Staples in Glenmont Shopping Center, a small establishment attracts a few customers for Saturday brunch. The front entrance has painted flowers on window glass and signs for Weekend Karaoke. With the latin sounds and flavors of El Salvador and Honduras, this is Irene's Pupusas.
The burning heat typical of Maryland summers has finally arrived and sometimes keeping cool with the creamy classic is the best—not to mention the tastiest—option. Luckily, SCO is here to review the best destinations to satisfy your sweet tooth.
