what's up the pike: flags of the world

Happy Flag Day, y'all. Now, with that out of the way:

- East County eight-piece swing band Swingtopia returns to the Greek Village Restaurant in Colesville for another month of Monday shows. It all starts at 8pm tonight at the restaurant, located at New Hampshire Avenue and Randolph Road. In the meantime, check out this video (courtesy of the band) from one of their previous performances.

- ReadysetDC interviews Silver Spring-based filmmaker Steven Greenstreet, whose documentary 8: The Mormon Proposition premieres nationwide next Friday, June 18. Come to read about the Mormon Church's involvement in passing a gay marriage ban in California, but stay for surprisingly sexy photos of Greenstreet's apartment in the Enclave, a high-rise complex in White Oak better known for its insect tenants.

Briefly noted:

- Hungry in Wheaton? Own an iPhone? There's an app for that or, more accurately, a nifty mobile version of the downtown's existing website.

- What, another Bethesda blog? "Bethesda is a town with a culture, vibrancy, style and economy all of its own," boasts Bethesda Actually. For a more accurate depiction of Bethesda's "culture," you might want to read Snoburbia instead.

- County planners at The Straight Line give an update about the garden they've planted outside their offices in downtown Silver Spring.

Hey thanks again for the plug. There will be only two more chances to hear us there before we break for the summer so I hope some of you will be able to stop in. The food's really good too!
