what's up the pike: end of an era?

You've probably noticed that we haven't done a "what's up the pike" round-up in a few weeks. If there's anything I've become increasingly bad at, it's keeping up with the e-mails that flood into the JUTP inbox. If you've sent me an e-mail that I haven't responded to, please forgive me!


- You've probably already seen the Post's write-up of friend of JUTP/blogger/clothier Lydia Sullivan of Snoburbia. Check out Lydia's recap of the experience - along with talk of those fancy $300 door handles - on her blog.

- Apparently, people in the suburbs can't handle spicy food, says City Paper food critic Tim Carman. (He is aware that the suburbs lay claim to he area's best ethnic food, right?)

- The Blair Mansion Restaurant hosts Noel Paul Stookey (I believe he's the "Paul" in Peter, Paul & Mary) for "an intimate dinner show" next Sunday, November 21 at 5:30pm. The Mansion's located at Georgia and Eastern avenues in Silver Spring. For tickets and more information, check out the Blair Mansion's website.

- The annual Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade returns to downtown Silver Spring on Saturday, November 20 at 9:30am. I'm sure you know the rest. For more information, visit Silver Spring's website.

And last, but not least:

- A Potomac man robbing a house in Silver Spring in April. Ironic, isn't it?

- Historian for Hire has a new website!

In a similar vein to better ethnic food in the suburbs, true New Yorkers know that you have to go to the outer boroughs for a decent slice of pizza. With few exceptions, what they call pizza in Manhattan is miserable, damp stuff.
