- After that, MoCo's Department of General Services hosts the follow-up to last week's sneak peek of the new Silver Spring Library (above) tomorrow. You can check out final drawings of the soon-to-be-built complex at Wayne and Fenton, which will include County offices, an art gallery, and a future Purple Line stop in addition to a new library. That meeting will be at 1pm Saturday in the current library, 8901 Colesville Road.
- And Tonight, everyone's favorite youth media collective, the Gandhi Brigade, premieres their latest documentaries. Crossing Borders is a series of four short films produced alongside kids in El Salvador while on a ten-day trip there last summer. The screening is from 6:30pm to 8:30pm in the Cafritz Arts Building at Georgia Avenue and King Street on Montgomery College's Takoma Park-Silver Spring campus.
- After that, the Art n Soul open mike for teens returns to Moorenko's Ice Cream for its second month. Writers and musicians (in middle and high school) are invited to come out and perform starting at 7:30pm, with a sign-up beginning at 7. If you don't know, Moorenko's is located at Georgia Avenue and East-West Highway, next to Mayorga Coffee.
- Speaking of The Kids, commenter Skateboard Mom went to Wednesday night's meeting about the proposed skate spot in Woodside Park and had this to say:
". . . 30 skateboarders (most of them teens) showed up to speak up for the need for a legitimate skating facility in Silver Spring. They were so polite and so well-behaved, that at the end Mike Riley, Department of Parks Deputy Director, complimented them on that, and said their behavior was much better than a lot of the behavior he's seen when that room has been filled with adults."
