I headed over to Jackie's Side Bar in Silver Spring last night for a farewell happy hour for Dan Reed, the creative genius behind just up the pike. It was great to meet Dan in person after reading his blog for years now. I also spent some time chatting with local photographer Chip Py, and Casey, a local Silver Spring resident. As a relative newcomer to the Silver Spring area (going on six years now), I was really impressed by everyone's knowledge of and involvement in local politics. I definitely learned more about Ike Leggett's political past than I've ever wanted to know (and I'll just leave it at that). This was the first time I've met with local bloggers, and everyone was very welcoming. I definitely hope to stay in touch with this group who is so enthusiastic about our area and where it's headed in the future. Thanks, guys!
