Chase Away the Winter Blues in Bethesda

After the epic blizzard, Snowzilla, last weekend many Bethesda residents are experiencing cabin fever!  We found today that a delectable dessert like Lemon Almond Cake at Praline Bakery in Bethesda chased the blues away! Sick of the melting snow everywhere?  There’s nothing like a sunny slice of heaven melting in your mouth to make your day a little brighter.  We highly recommend a slice…or maybe the whole cake!   Praline Bakery is located […]

Spring Has Arrived in Bethesda!

As the sweet smell of cinnamon and sugar wafted around me this evening on Woodmont Avenue, I realized that spring has indeed finally arrived in Bethesda!  Rita’s Crepes is open for business!  Now the hard part…how to choose just one!

Top 5 Things to do in Bethesda in October

October is, in my opinion, the most wonderful time of the year.  It started at a young age for me…my birthday is in October.  At my current age however, that is no longer a good thing.  Yet the month remains my favorite of the year!  Football season is in full swing, the weather is wonderful, the leaves are changing color, Oktoberfests abound, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin pie and all things […]

Date Night at Whole Foods Bethesda

Have you ever tried to find a parking spot in Bethesda at 7 PM on a Friday night?  You may have better luck with the lottery!  After an unsuccessful double pass around the garage on Bethesda Ave and a precarious pass up and down a few streets weaving around pedestrians, we decided this evening to set out for less dense surroundings and an alternative plan for dinner. We found ourselves […]

Belly Up to the Chocolate Bar in Bethesda

UPDATE: Max Brenner Chocolate is no longer in Bethesda.  Check out the new business in that space on Woodmont Avenue. Looking for a fun date night idea or a unique venue for a birthday party?  A new and original bar coming to Bethesda Row has the solution.  Unlike Max Brenner’s other restaurants in Philadelphia and New York, this new location has been dubbed a chocolate bar and will be serving […]

Top 5 Reasons to BowlMor Bethesda!

Bowlmor Bethesda is a great place to enjoy some family time or a ladies night out!  We recently brought our son (a kindergartener at the time) for his first bowling experience!   When he heard that we were going bowling, you would have thought he won the lottery!  He was so excited he nearly cried. We rolled into the parking lot at 5353 Westbard Ave and embarked upon on an […]

Step into History while you Enjoy a Sandwich

One of the great benefits of living in Bethesda is the proximity to Washington D.C. and all that the Metro area has to offer.  Today reminded me of that perk.  Brian and I were out touring homes for sale during Tuesday Broker’s Open Houses in Bethesda and afterward popped into Spring Valley for lunch.  We decided to grab a bite at Wagshal’s Delicatessen located at 4855 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington DC […]

Day 94: The Pines of Rome in Bethesda

“Where can we go for some good pizza in Bethesda?” the young couple asked their handsome real estate agent (that’s me) after a long afternoon looking for houses.  What immediately came to mind was The Pines of Rome, located at 4709 Hampden Lane.  The Pines of Rome is named after a trio of symphonic poems written by the Italian violinist turned composer Ottorino Respighi.  Each symphony depicts the pine trees […]
