what's up the pike: special thursday lunchtime edition

Perpetual Building, Cameron at Georgia
- Jerry McCoy points us to a new website celebrating the work of the Bank Building & Equipment Corporation of America, who designed the Perpetual Building at Georgia Avenue and Cameron Street. If you're a fan of mid-century modern architecture, you'll find no shortage of 1950's-era glory (like this cutie in Newport Beach, CA) there.

- Good Eatin' compares the banh mi at Saigonese and Hung Phat in Wheaton but, of course, finds no comparison to the former, and much better, sandwich.

- Planner Josh Sloan at The Straight Line enjoys the public art in the plaza at the new United Therapeutics building at Cameron and Fenton streets.

- A positive review, with photos, of Cuba de Ayer in Burtonsville.

- Washington Gardener Magazine, published by East Silver Spring resident and friend of JUTP Kathy Jentz, is looking for college-aged summer interns interested in learning about magazine journalism. The unpaid intern would spend 10-20 hours each week conducting interviews, proofreading and editing articles, blogging and doing a social media campaign, among other tasks. For more information, e-mail Kathy Jentz at wgardenermag at aol dot com.

The United Theraputics building is a gem, isn't it? So nice to have them in Silver Spring.
