Neelys at Woodmore Wegmans, Bethesda condo residents say PGCo people disrespect their neighborhood, Chocolate Martini coming to National Harbor, and Carolina Kitchen owner Lance London enters burger fray with TKO Burgers AND one is opening in PGCo

One voucher needed per family (2 adults and children). Limited vouchers available. You need both folks.
TKO Burger InteriorLance London, owner of Carolina Kitchen, opened TKO  Burgers, a boxing themed burger restaurant in DC right next to his newly opened Carolina Kitchen at Rhode Island Row.  Plans are underway to open a TKO Burger in PGCo at The Mall at Prince George’s.  Let’s get ready to rumble then. What I’m extremely glad about is that Lance London is not leaving Prince George’s County out of his equation for success.  Yes there’s a lot of money to be made in DC, but there’s a hefty piece of money to be made in PGCo too.  There is one caveat: the food must be good.  I’m not going to a restaurant just because it’s in PGCo.  TKO Burgers boasts a daily brunch from 11-3 and pays homage to southern cuisine with it’s Rocky Mount wings, southern friend green tomato burger, macaroni and cheese burger and an offering called Spanky’s bbq-cheddar hot dog. There are alcoholic drinks, bottomless mimosas and bloody marys along with shakes and homemade desserts.   
Chocolate Martini BarNational Harbor is opening another restaurant this Fall; that place is booming.  The Chocolate Martini Bar name  is a lil misleading. Hey Honey, let’s pack up pop-pop, grandma and lil Jimmy and head on down to the Chocolate Martini Bar.  Might want to tell lil Jimmy that you’re going to the Chocolate Shop or something another so his story about what he did over the weekend doesn’t land you with a CPS appointment.  In addition to a kid’s menu, appetizers, entrees, full drink menu, The Chocolate Martini Bar offers flatbreads, desserts-WHY DID I LOOK AT THE DESSERT MENU?!!! There are shakes, crepes, hot chocolates, chocolate everything.  OH MY.  Focus Ceemac focus.  There are also entrees under 550 calories, which is where I should start. 
Parva Lounge InstagramAccording to Bethesda Now, Latin restaurant and dance lounge, Parva, located in Bethesda will get to keep its alcohol license, despite a challenge from nearby Fairmont Plaza condo dwellers who say the restaurant is too loud and a magnet for drunken behavior.  What struck me the about the complaints from the Bethesda condo residents is that they say the Parva patrons are coming from Prince George’s County and disrespecting the surrounding properties.  I’m thinking REALLY.  It’s just us.   “One of the chief complaints of the residents — that The Parva’s customers come from outside of Bethesda and show little respect for the area — sparked a fiery response from [Parva lawyer Alan] Steinhorn, who happens to live in Prince George’s County.  “I’m personally offended by this protest pointing out Prince George’s County residents frequent La Parva,” Steinhorn said. “I really don’t know if I want to come to Bethesda anymore if the people who live there don’t want people from Prince George’s County.” Fairmont Plaza residents said they took exception to what they called “race-baiting,” from Steinhorn. Montgomery County Police officer Mike Schmidt, who works off-duty security for The Parva three nights a week, said the restaurant is far from the loudest or most disruptive in Woodmont Triangle. Schmidt also said many of the residents’ complaints directed at The Parva are actually about patrons of other bars who hang out in Veterans Park around closing time.”  I’ve perused the social media accounts for Parva.  Looks like a mostly Latino, sprinkles of Black and caucasian crowd.  I wonder…

So, there I was driving down Branch Ave. after some errand, trying to get back to “civilization,” when suddenly my vision was obscured by clouds of smoke rolling out of a barbeque barrel in a parking lot. I slammed on the brakes, did a U-turn, and have not regretted it. Check it out. The Tender Rib. 3443 Branch Ave, Temple Hills, MD 20748 (301) 316-1019 OMG.
