in search of a good milkshake?

THIS WEEK ON JUST UP THE PIKE: A look at last Saturday's East County Transportation Forum, and the unveiling of a new Ride-On route; some answers about a Colesville controversy I mentioned over a week ago; guest blogger Adam returns to further explain the Annual Growth Policy.

From Annapolis, former East County resident "Blue C" e-mails us to reminisce about the old Colesville McDonald's:
"Hey, thanks for the picture of the Mickey Dee's, where our kids grew up (we used to live across the street from Springbrook High School.) We got tired of waiting for the [inter] county connector, so after nearly 30 years, we left the county. It's a bit more backward where we are now, but there's less traffic, more water and better food!"
She's got us there. Sure, Anne Arundel County might have an eccentric, penny-pinching county executive, but they also have Ann's Dari-Creme (above), which may have the best milkshakes you can get anywhere. Maybe Blue C had the right idea . . .

MEANWHILE: Well, this week's Post Sunday Source did a feature on several area bloggers, including Rick from Laurel Connections and, of course, yours truly. You might notice that I didn't list any East County blogs as ones I read regularly.

See, I explained to Christina Antoniades, the reporter, that picking between them was like "choosing your favorite child," but of course that didn't make it into the story. I probably hit up each East County blog twice a day, but I must look like a turncoat to our beloved "Silver Spring Blogging Collective," as Henry from the Silver Spring Scene likes to call us.

Sigh. If only the Collective could forgive me.

Haven't been to the Tastee Diner in a while, but they once had a pretty good mile shake.

For those old enough to remember the Dart Drug- not only had a great shake but a damn good sundae.

Saw your blog in yesterdays Washington Post and I think it's great! Our neighborhood started a blog 3 years ago and it has been a huge success - great to know others are out there around this area. Check us out if you have time...

You sound like you're feeling guilty.

How come every time I go to the Tastee they say "the milkshake machine is broken"? - I have yet to taste one. Congrats on the Sunday Source piece - I have to sit down and read that when I get a few minutes breather from alying out our current issue on "Groundovers: Getting rid of your Turfgrass Lawn" - NO relation to the downtown SS turf controversy, LOL.
