There was a GF's on Georgia in Wheaton. Don't know how long it's been gone. Last time I ate there was in the late 80's.

My brother worked at a GF's in the Chicago area back in the late 70's. When he made pizza to bring home to the family, instead of using canned veggies to top the pizza, which was standard operating practice, he raided the salad bar and got fresh ingredients!

Kiddy Land was at New Hampshire Ave. and East West Hwy. My mom used to take us grocery shopping at the old A&P, which is now ALDI. No car seats, and two toddlers crawling around in the backseat, playing with whatever we found in the ashtrays. We would go to the car wash next door, which is still there. Ice cream at Weile's which is now a pawnshop. The local pawnshop had a big black and white photo of Weile's on the wall until they got bought out by First Cash. One of the employees took it. We used to get shoes at Shoe Giant and Daniel's Bootery. I've got an old sign from Shoe Giant that used to hang on the back of the building.

Weiles's. After every game we would make ourselves sick eating quarts of Ice cream.

I go back to the area every now and again, it ain't the same

EDIT: what was the name of that little hole in the wall pub in Silver Spring across from where the metro is now.. it was down a flight of stairs, Georgia Ave. and Ellsworth? I doubt it's still there but man the stories I have from that place..
"The Quarry" comes to mind for that place. I think it burned.

Ledo's Sauce is still supreme though.
one of my younger brothers was there at that time. Rob Engels. remember Master Bates. lolol.
