Holy Cool – A Snow Bar!

I didn’t think it could get better than an igloo (see below) but a reader writes:

“I just thought I would share a few pictures from up north in Silver Spring Saturday evening. My husband and our neighbors decided to forgo the traditional snow fort in favor of a snow bar. It wasn’t long before we had about 20 neighbors and friends of friends showing up to enjoy the crisp snowy evening. It’s a rare occasion when our city-friends are jealous of a night in Silver Spring and this was certainly the night!”

    I normally am the biggest prick on this blog. In fact, I detest just about every single post on this blog. However, this is just too cool. Bravo!

      And might we Silver Spring penguins (the city mascot, if you didn’t know) be the first to congratulate you on your prick-free reply! If the Metro’s running, you should c’mon up and have a few more break-throughs.

    I saw a similar, though smaller, bar on Connecticut at Rodman – the Rodman St. Bar. It served some hot drinks as well as vodka with an option to have it mixed with elderberry juice. It was excellent. Every time I walk past it I wish the women who set it up were still there.
