Brother Ali said it best in his song Room With a View when he dropped lines like, "I see all this from the desk that I write my rhymes from, pen starts to write on its own, my minds numb, but you can call me a modern urban Norman Rockwell, because I paint a picture of the spot well."

I'll be thirty later this year, but in the 80's when I was growing up in Germantown, we were plucking joint roaches from the missing mortar brick walls of what now is the Nach Bar. Then, it was Steve & Judy's, a semi-rough biker bar on the wrong side of Goss avenue. Things have definitely...

An old-school favorite returns to the ‘217, this time with yummy food
Since moving to just south of Eastern Parkway outside of Germantown, my husband and I have missed the selection of bars and restaurants we took for granted when we lived in the Highlands.
