I decided a while ago that Howard County needs its own Dan Reed. In case you don’t know, Mr. Reed writes the blog “Just Up the Pike” about goings-on in Montgomery County. To be more precise:
New restaurants? Old restaurants? Real Estate? Bikeability? Politics? Schools and redistricting? Mr. Reed covers it all. For those in Howard County who say we should simply do things the way they do in MoCo, you might be surprised to learn that they have many of the same challenges and they are struggling just as mightily as we are.
When local podcast Elevate Maryland was asking for names of possible guests, I immediately suggested Mr.Reed. The good news: he’ll be the guest tonight. The bad news: I have Back to School Night for work.
Please go on out to La Palapa on Main Street in Old EC this evening and show Mr. Reed a proper HoCo welcome. (You know, the kind without protest signs and matching t-shirts.) This is going to be a fascinating episode. Being there in person while they tape truly adds to the experience. Get some dinner, maybe a margarita or two. It starts at seven.
But don’t miss it. And tell me all about it tomorrow.
