I’m told the Olney McDonald’s is going to be formally applying to add a second drive-thru to the restaurant.
Currently, there’s one drive-thru, but I’m told the thought process behind adding a second includes alleviating traffic and reducing the occasional back-up the fast food restaurant causes on major roads in Olney.
Two-Time NCAA Champ And Olympic Gold Medalist, Kyle Snyder (Good Counsel), Is Wrestling In His Final Collegiate Match Today
Kyle Snyder is widely considered the greatest wrestler the United States has ever produced. Before he was winning NCAA Championships and gold medals, he amassed a 179-0 record in high school (Snyder is a Good Counsel alum).
Snyder has won 2 NCAA Championships with Ohio State and an Olympic gold medal as a heavyweight for the United States. He’s the first wrestler to ever win an NCAA Championship after winning a gold medal.
Tonight he wrestles in the finals of the NCAA tournament in an attempt to become the heavyweight champion for the third straight year.
He has only lost once since his freshman year, earlier this year to Michigan’s Adam Coon, the man he will be wrestling in just a few hours. Though Snyder has since beaten Coon in the Big Ten tournament, Coon outweighs Snyder by over 50 lbs.
Win or lose, Good Counsel’s Kyle Snyder has already left a huge mark in the wrestling world. Congratulations on an amazing college career!
Below you’ll see Kyle Snyder’s thoughts on the Sunshine Burger from the Sunshine General Store.
There have been approximately 1,000 incidents handled by Montgomery County Fire & Rescue since early this morning.
The images below show just a small fraction of the damage from different areas across Montgomery County.
The Corned Beef King will get his second gas station location when he opens up shop at the Liberty gas station in Rockville (Rockville Pike and Twinbrook Parkway).
CBK already has one gas station location at the Exxon on Georgia Avenue in Olney. Their food truck was stationed at Hank Dietle’s even a few days after the legendary bar was destroyed by a fire, according to the CBK Facebook page.
The Greater Olney Civic Association will be hosting a County Executive Debate on Monday, March 5th, at the Olney Theatre Center.
We polled almost 2,000 people in three locations in the county (Gaithersburg, Bethesda, and Wheaton) and were able to get these statistics through our research:
Approximately 5% of people could name a county executive candidate.
Less than 10% of people had voted in a local election (city/county).
Over 95% of people polled cared about issues the local government plays a role in controlling.
Just over 55% of people polled said they would at least “probably vote” in the election for county executive after we spoke to them.
I invite everyone in MoCo to join me at this debate (free to attend). I’d love to meet a bunch of you and talk a little bit about MoCo.
See you there!
Good Counsel alum, Stefon Diggs, catches a 61 yard touchdown as time expires to send the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship.
Diggs also played his college ball at the University of Maryland. His younger brother, Trevon Diggs (Wootton and Avalon), won a National Championship at Alabama last week.
Looks like the rumor that has been around for a year is finally becoming reality.
I just received a tip from someone who spoke directly to the people working on the old Sakura location in Olney. They are expanding it so that it can become an IHOP.
Some of my favorite restaurants in MoCo are the ones you step foot in and feel like you’ve entered 1991. The food is usually really good, but you’d never know it by looking at the restaurant from the outside. The bar is often filled with the same regulars that have been taking up seats for decades. I don’t want to call them “divey” cause there’s a negative connotation that comes with that and most of the time these places hold some of our favorite memories (all images via the Restaurants Facebook pages).
Here’s 10 of them:
Gentleman Jim’s (Gaithersburg): In MoCo for over 40 years (originally in Rockville), but in the current Gaithersburg location since 1997. Swiss on pizza??? It works.
Outta The Way Cafe (Derwood): Serving some of the best wings in MoCo since 1987.
Stained Glass Pub (Glenmont): One of our ‘Best Pizza In MoCo’ winners has been at their location in Glenmont since 1976.
Stop by Pandora Seafood House & Bar in Rockville Town Square and pay just $1 for a whole lobster (2 entree minimum).
Hershey’s Restaurant (Washington Grove): I was told they opened in 1952 when I called, but Google lists 1969. Either way, the Redskins are still great when you step into Hershey’s.
Crisfield Seafood (Silver Spring): Crisfield has been serving up affordable seafood dishes since 1945.
Village Cafe (Montgomery Village): A local hangout for many since 1980, I am told that the Village Cafe will be closing by March 1st, 2018.
Olney Ale House (Olney): The oldest of the bunch, Olney Ale House has been serving patrons since 1925.
Seibel’s (Burtonsville): As the only place on this list I’ve never been to, I’m told I have to try the ice cream at Seibel’s. Can’t wait to check it out, it has been there since 1939.
Jonathan’s (Rockville): Jonathan’s opened as Barnaby’s (formerly in Wheaton) sister restaurant in 1983.

Welcome to The MoCoShow’s Best Pizza in MoCo list!
I made the decision to go with two different lists this year, giving the the brick oven/woodfired/Neapolitan style pizzas their own category in a Top 5 list. Almost every other type of pizza is included in the Classic Style Top 20 List.
Please read a few of the rules we used at the end of this article to avoid any confusion.
