Have you seen the newest public art addition to Bethesda Row? Look for "What Lifts You" in the alley by Quatermaine Coffee Roasters, which is officially known as "Hagar Lane" for GPS purposes. Sammy would be proud. #Bethesda #BethesdaRow #WhatLiftsYou #SammyHagar #art #mural #painting #publicart #alley #city #urban #CityLights #night #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Sears Auto Center has closed in Bethesda. Is the Bethesda Sears store itself next? The next round of Sears store closures reportedly will include some profitable stores along with struggling ones. Westfield has already bought the Sears building at Montgomery Mall. #Bethesda #westfieldmontgomery #MontgomeryMall #mall #Rockville #rkv #suburban #suburbia #suburbs #Sears #SearsRoebuck #SearsAutoCenter #automotive #autorepair #closed #abandoned #vacant #ruins #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Suma Restaurant + Bar at 4921 Bethesda Avenue has been closed for several days. A sign posted on the door says the closure is "due to renovations," and that the restaurant will re-open "next month." Rumors are swirling regarding the ultimate fate of the restaurant, so stay tuned. #Bethesda #dining #restaurant #city #urban #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

The sign is up at Pet Parents, opening early fall in the ground floor of the Bainbridge Bethesda luxury apartment tower on Fairmont Avenue. An upscale pet supply store, Pet Parents will also offer dog walking services, and make deliveries. Great for downtown Bethesda pet parents. #Bethesda #BainbridgeBethesda #pets #pet #petsofinstagram #petstore #dog #cat #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Book lover's dress: Westfield Montgomery Mall has a new art exhibit on display from Laurel-based non-profit ManneqART, which is helping promote Westfield's Refashion the Future campaign. ManneqART seeks to bring "wearable art" to the attention of the American public, and these dresses are made from recycled materials. #Bethesda #westfieldmontgomery #MontgomeryMall #mall #Rockville #rkv #suburban #suburbia #suburbs #fashion #shopping #dress #dresses #mannequin #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

How about those Bethesda gas prices? Did you know some of the large Wall Street banks control large amounts of commodities, including oil, and can artificially drive up gas prices? #Bethesda #gasstation #Shell #gas #oil #gas #fuel #roadside #sign #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

More taxpayer-funded retribution against drivers who complained about illegal closure of Leland Street by Montgomery County: a police trap awaiting those who turn right from Woodmont Avenue between 4-7 PM. The Montgomery County Council continues to "look busy" to convince their wealthy patron(s) on Leland that they are delivering special VIP treatment. #ThrowTheBumsOut #Bethesda #street #suburbs #suburban #suburbia #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

A digital middle finger from the Montgomery County Council and their wealthy patron(s) on Leland Street, who were busted red-handed trying to illegally close the road at Woodmont Avenue, to the drivers who complained loudly about their stealth scheme. Now they've put up this sign that expensively announces the same turn restrictions already posted on a sign at the corner. #Bethesda #ThrowTheBumsOut #corruption #scandal #BurtMacklinFBI #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

That moment when a hardware store passes you on Wisconsin Avenue at midnight. The last 19th century building in downtown Bethesda was moved from next to the Apex Building up to Middleton Lane overnight. Best known as Community Paint & Hardware, it began life in the 1890s as the Wilson Store. See my blog today (link in my bio) for videos and photos from the move. #Bethesda #history #CommunityPaintAndHardware #historic #historicpreservation #architecture #building #city #urban #CityLights #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland
