The Damascus Rite Aid and Pharmacy (9840 Main St.) will be closing permanently on October 21st (Pharmacy will close on October 8th), according to Everything Damascus.
”Nobody goes there.” was the response I was given by three different Damascus residents when I informed them of the news.
Honey Pig in Germantown (19743 Frederick Rd.), a Korean BBQ restaurant, is rebranding as Honey One starting Tuesday, September 11th. Honey One will offer all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ.
Honey Pig recently opened a new Rockville location (12015-G Rockville Pike at Montrose Crossing), but that location will not be changing.
The switch to Honey One will offer Up-County residents an all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ option much closer than Rockville.
The restaurant remains under the Honey Pig umbrella.
A few weeks back I ran into a former student who suffered from alopecia. I hadn’t seen him in nearly a decade, but one of the first things he did was ask me if I liked his hair.
He told me that he recently went to a place in Bethesda that was able to use a procedure called SMP (scalp micropigmentation) to make it appear as though he had a full head of hair.
It looked great, and I could tell how happy and excited he was. He told me the place was called Scalp Allure and I knew I had to check it out.
I called Scalp Allure and spoke with owner, Daniel Yerenburg. We set up a time for me to stop by and see what this was all about.
Scalp Allure is located in a quiet office building in Bethesda (10411 Motor City Drive, just behind Montgomery Mall). Daniel has been there for 5 years. In that time, he has completed over 5,000 procedures and claims a 100% satisfaction rate.
He moved to the United States with his family when he was just a kid, back in 1989. In the early 90s his family moved to Gaithersburg and Daniel has been there ever since (he’s a 1997 graduate of Gaithersburg High School).
Daniel began his battle with hair loss when he was just 18. He even joined the hair club for men, but didn’t know if having to worry about a hair piece was any better than being bald, so he shaved his head completely.
He ended up finding out about scalp micropigmentation online and went to a local tattoo artist. It was a big mistake. Daniel ended up with a blue head filled with massive dots. He later got this fixed in New York, but he knew he found something he was passionate about and wanted to change lives the same way his was changed.
After being trained in New York he came back to the area and began performing the scalp micropigmentation procedures himself.
Of his 5,000 procedures have been, approximately 85% have been men, but he has worked on hundreds of women as well. In addition to clients with thinning hair, he’s executed procedures on clients with alopecia, scars from injuries, surgical scars, cancer patients, and almost any type of hair loss you can think of.
Daniel prides himself on being able to complete these procedures with minimal pain. He says the feeling is more of a slight discomfort than pain and that he’s never had to stop a procedure due to pain.
The procedures are semi-permanent and require touch-ups every five years or so. Without any touch-ups, he estimates the procedures would last about a decade or longer.
His patients have included over a dozen doctors, CIA agents, dancers, teachers, mma fighters, and a lot more.
More than anything, he loves being able to give people the confidence that hair loss has caused them.www.instagram.com/danielyerenburg

I’m told a plan has been submitted to convert 8019 Snouffer School Rd. to a new Checker’s location.
A preliminary plan has been approved and Checkers is now awaiting final approval for a restaurant that will be specifically designed for the property (previously a bank).
This location would have a drive-thru and many of the design features found at a typical Checkers restaurant, but will also provide outdoor seating and amenities that would make it a destination dining location.
They’re still in the early stages of planning, so it may take a while for final approval...assuming it happens. This would be the second Checkers location in MoCo (the first location is also in Gaithersburg, on Shady Grove Rd.).
BoBaPop Tea Bar (312 Main Street) will host their Grand Opening event this Friday, 9/7/18, and will celebrate by offering 50% off of their signature teas (Friday only)!
The celebration continues Saturday when BoBaPop will offer a free thermos with the purchase of any two drinks, and on Sunday when they offer a free logo coaster with the purchase of any two drinks.
The Vietnamese based company has over 140 stores worldwide, but the Kentlands location will be their first in the United States.
It will be locally franchised and operated by Gaithersburg resident Sam Lin and his wife Susan Hsu.
I was able to sample their Kumquat Winter Melon, a flavor combination that was brand new to me, and loved it. It’s a tangy/sweet drink that makes for a perfect dessert. I also tried the Matcha (without red beans...just a personal preference). It has a creamier taste than other Matcha drinks I’ve had before. I loved this one as well, but make sure you’ve tried matcha before ordering it. It’s not a taste for everyone.
Though the sweeter drinks are my preference, you’re able to adjust your sugar and ice levels for lost drinks (30, 50, 70, and 100%).

Federal Realty announced today that Fogo de Chão (fogo-dee-shown), the internationally renowned Brazilian steakhouse, or churrascaria, is coming to Pike & Rose. Fogo de Chão will be located at 11600 Old Georgetown Rd, North Bethesda, MD, taking over the space vacated by a Nike pop-up store.
Fogo de Chão specializes in the centuries-old Southern Brazilian cooking technique of churrasco – the art of roasting high-quality cuts of meats over open flame, all of which are carved tableside by Brazilian-trained gaucho chefs. Founded in Southern Brazil in 1979, there are currently 52 locations throughout Brazil, the United States, Mexico, and the Middle East. This will be the 41st location in the United States.
At Pike & Rose, Fogo de Chão joins more than 50 tenants in approximately 350,000 square feet of thoughtfully merchandized retail space, a 177-key Canopy by Hilton boutique hotel, 765 luxury apartments, 99 condominiums and 80,000 square feet of best-in-class office space.
Fogo de Chão will open at the beginning of 2019.
