Welcome Chick-fil-a and Trader Joe’s!

I remember not too long ago when the only grocery store option nearby was a run down Giant. Anyone with me? And I still decided to move to Cheverly ūüėČ Now we have an awesome Aldi (my personal fav), a Costco, Wegmans, Mom’s Organic Market, Yes Market, Whole Foods in Riverdale and now a Trader…

Real Estate and More!

Good morning all! I hope this is the last day of cold weather. I’m so looking forward to spring and to see all of the flowers bloom in Cheverly. I wanted to let you all know that the home above (3112 Parkway- near cheese park) is going on the market this week. I know the…

You can get tacos for $2, Margarita’s for $8 and Sangria’s for $5 on Tuesdays- Sundays from 5-6:30. I can’t tell you how excited I am to visit this place. Anyone been there yet? They opened on Jan…

Breakfast Anyone?

Pre kids my husband and I would drive over to College Park to¬†a diner for breakfast. It was lovely to sit and talk and drink coffee for what felt like hours upon hours. We had nothing on our schedule and all the time in the world. Alas, how time (and children) changes things… I’m still…

Taqueria Taco Rico

Today is the day. I’m headed over to 4811 Edmonston road. Taqueria Taco Rico, which I have yet to try, is already amazing. Why? Because they say YES every time someone in Cheverly has a fundraiser. For that alone, I’m going to get myself some tacos. When I first looked this place up I couldn’t…

Ivy City SmokeHouse Tavern & Market

I just picked up the latest edition of the Washingtonian magazine. I love it because there are all sorts of gems inside and this past month they focused on The Chesapeake Bay. When oh when are they going to feature Cheverly?! Trust me, I’ve sent an email or two to the editors. My husband mentioned…

Going Out Local

Why am I just finding out that College Park has a cafe¬†called, “The Board and Brew“? ¬†Have any of my readers been there? I really want to go. Apparently on Mondays if you buy $10 worth of food, you can play an unlimited number of board games for $1. Date night. Boom. Our next door…

Snowmen, Cheverly Sledding, Cheverly Pool, Contest and Happy Hour

How about this for a snowman?! Check out the Star Wars characters right next to Frosty. I love it. What a week we’ve had in Cheverly. What a week!! Frankly, I’m a bit worn out. I’m ready for my life to turn back to ‘normal’ whatever that means. This morning I was dreaming about the…

Bird Kitchen and Cocktails

What a fun name. That’s right folks, Bird Kitchen and Cocktails is coming soon to a town near us- Mt. Rainier. If you don’t yet know where Mt. Rainier is, look it up and make your way over- it’s only a few minutes away from Cheverly and it is starting to boom with new restaurants….

A Few Of My Favorite Things: Franklins Restaurant
