Sides shine at Jackie's Restaurant

By Abir Muhuri | Feb. 24, 2014, 1:05 p.m. | In Restaurant Reviews »

A delicious Nutella Day celebration

By Dylan Ahunhodjaev Zoe Johnson | Feb. 6, 2014, 9:15 p.m. | In Recipes »

Well Blazers, it's that time of year again. A time when the clouds and winter cold seem a little less bleak, when everyday stresses and "important work" seem inconsequential and everywhere you look people are alive in the warm spirit of a blessed holiday.


Hollywood East Cafe

By Samuel Popper | Jan. 6, 2014, 12:58 p.m. | In Restaurant Reviews »

Hollywood East Cafe is located in the "Restaurant Row" section of the Wheaton Mall located on Veirs Mill road in Wheaton about a 10 minute drive from Montgomery Blair High School. The restaurant itself seems kind of hidden under a canopy of the mall so it can be kind of tough to find from the outside. The Hollywood East Cafe was not a very big restaurant, it was smaller than it looked but still seemed to fit about 50-60 people on a busy day.

By Caroline Gabriel | Dec. 19, 2013, 1:15 p.m. | In Recipes »

Cozy Pacci's Pizzeria is Superbly Delicious

By Sarah Trunk | Oct. 29, 2013, 4:12 p.m. | In Restaurant Reviews »

Pacci's Neopolitan Pizzeria in Silver Spring is tucked away in an inconspicuous corner in Downtown Silver Spring, right by the World building. Inside, Pacci's seems pretty small, with a bar, an open pizza oven, a few tables and dim lighting that adds a cozy feel. Their outdoor seating is very spacious. Although it's right on a busy road, it's quiet and tranquil, in part because of the soothing water fountain nearby. Green vines creep up the walls and bad pop music plays in the background. It's the perfect place if you want to try new things or if you are going for something traditional.


Playing It Safe With Fire Station 1

By Martha Morganstein | Oct. 29, 2013, 1:02 p.m. | In Restaurant Reviews »

With its big firetruck out on display, Fire Station 1, located in Downtown, is sure to get noticed. It has enough space to seat over 300 people and is located in a restored 100-year-old fire house. Although it has fun décor and great service, the food leaves something to be desired.


Irene's Pupusas: Queen of Latin comfort food

By Abir Muhuri | Sept. 26, 2013, 5:57 p.m. | In Restaurant Reviews »
