Thanks to a reader for sending the Takoma Park Police’s press release:
At approximately 1:42 a.m., Takoma Park Police received a call for shots fired in the area of Flower Avenue. Shortly after, they received another call for the report of two white males lying in a driveway in the 7300 block of Flower Avenue. Officers responded out and confirmed both males deceased suffering from gunshot wounds. They were located in one of the deceased person’s driveway located in the 7300 block of Flower Avenue, Takoma Park, Maryland. At this time, investigators do not believe that there were any other individuals involved in the incident. Until the autopsies are completed tomorrow by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore, the exact cause and mechanism of death has yet to be determined.
Preliminarily, investigators believe that the two men were friends and were coworkers at a special education school in the District of Columbia. It is premature to determine what circumstances led to or why this shooting occurred. There was no indication of hostility prior to the shooting. All initial information leads to the belief that this was a Homicide/Suicide. We would ask that respect and privacy be given to the families of both men.
The individuals are identified as:
David Draa, 30, of Takoma Park, Maryland; and
Steven Kyle Hickman, 30, of Washington, DC.
From a press release:
The organizer of the hugely successful Fenton Street Market, in conjunction with the Old Takoma Business Association, will be bringing a new market to historic Takoma Park, MD in Spring 2013. The new Grant Avenue Market will showcase antiques, collectibles and other funky finds and will take place on one block of Grant Avenue in the Takoma Junction neighborhood in Takoma Park. Market goers can expect to find the same winning format as the Fenton Street Market – vendor booths, music and food – adding yet another activity to the busy Sunday line-up in Old Takoma which already offers the popular Takoma Park Farmers Market from 10am-2pm.

Thanks to everyone who sent links for this huge news coming to Takoma Park. A new restaurant from Jeff Black (owner of Logan Circle’s Pearl Dive and Black Jack among many others) is coming to 6937-6939 Laurel Ave not far from the Takoma metro in Takoma Park, MD. The Post’s Tom Sietsema reports:
Still to be named, their modern American restaurant will embrace a dining room, two spots for drinking, a patio, live entertainment a couple times a week and — to absolutely no one’s surprise given Black’s multiple seafood-themed establishments — a raw bar.
A few weeks ago we also learned that a Busboys and Poets is also likely coming to Takoma.
What an awesome sculpture/tribute from up in Silver Spring. The dedication says:
The unofficial “Mayor” of Silver Spring was a homeless man who collected hand-outs of money and food. Norman Lane walked the streets of Silver Spring for almost 25 years, doing odd jobs around the neighborhoods and handing out flowers to women on the street picked out of the Bell Flowers dumpster. Norman Lane was a mainstay in the community, and his enjoyment of life has been immortalized in a bronze bust created by artist and friend, Fred Folsom. The plaque beneath Norman Lane’s likeness reads, “Remembering the Caring Kindhearted Forbearance of the People of Silver Spring.” This is a tribute, not only to this local legend, but to the citizens of Silver Spring like Robert Phillips, owner of the Silver Spring Auto Body Shop, who kept a cot and a hot plate in the garage as a permanent home for Lane.

Thanks to a few people for sending this update from the Washington Post:
Piratz Tavern in Silver Spring headed to Davy Jones’s locker, as they say, this week after the Spike TV reality show “Bar Rescue” chose the bar for one of its Season Two episodes.
The bar reopened the night of Feb. 18 as Corporate Bar and Grill with a menu serving gourmet burgers, tuna steaks and shrimp ceviche.

Piratz tavern was located at 8402 Georgia Avenue.
Corporate Bar and Grill is, uh, not the most creative name… I’m sure many people would hope that Piratz tavern, like their Website says, was still open!
