I don't know if this is still the case but at one time not so long ago in Anne Arundel County only one license could be granted to a business entity. So a company like TGIF could have as many restaurants as it wanted to open but only one could serve alcohol.
I have never understood why MD, being as liberal as it professes, has restrictions on liquor but tobacco is widely available. I don't drink so my interest as a consumer is minimal but I do see the value with recapturing the tax dollars spent on alcohol in VA and DC. I heard there have been discussion in Annapolis and the to relax the current law but don't know for sure when or if that will happen.

Yea, the owner of that Shell station opposed the overall project but did try to convince them to build the store without the gas station.

I see that ,where in the post did I say MGM borderd a county,I said one even borders a state ,that would be VA
Yes , compare how many customers go through a Whole Food or a Wegmans in a day ,week ,month or year to D&B and I bet you have a much higher customer count .

U had one in Wheaton and it FAILED, so maybe MOCO residents aren't as "High class" as u think lol

Lol your funny thinking a person has to be from those particular areas to be well off......Please take a drive to Darnestown, Clarksburg, Gaithersburg (Kentlands/Lakelands) South Germantown, West Rockville (towards Rockville Town Square/Kings Farm/Fallsgrove area), North Potomac.. do some research on Montgomery County and you'll see you don't have to live in Bethesda, Potomac, and Chevy Chase to be very comfortable

FYI I LIVE IN LEAMAN FARMS (South Germantown) look it up... so please STOP and smack yourself

G1 everything you stated I 100% agree with....they will see for themselves that D&B will NOT last.....I'm going to say it one more time give it 2 years. It will be fights that will ruin it for everyone!!.....I think what a lot of people are forgetting D&B was doing GREAT at White Flint Mall....It was Investor that wanted residential/retail and a new style for North Bethesda (with upcoming Pike and Rose developments). Do your research and you'll see D&B didn't want to leave the mall (they were forced out)......

There are lots of expensive real estate in Silver Spring and Takoma Park and LOTS of upper midde and upper class people. Silver Spring and Takoma Park are crazy diverse both ethnically and economically. You have poor, low income, working class, middle class, and affluent and then AA, white, Jews, Hispanics, Asians, Ethiopians, west Africans, aliens lol.

Montgomery county doesn't really have hoods compared to D.C., PG county, and Baltimore city. The few hoods MoCo has are just working class and middle class areas/apartment complexes that have hood elements but not dangerous. 88 (Piney Branch and Carroll ave down to Flower ave area), Maple ave (the high rises), Houston ave, 650 Lockwood (White Oak, the apartment complexes along Lockwood drive), 38 (Castle Blvd in Briggs Chaney), Tobytown in Potomac, Lincoln Park in East Rockville, 108 in Olney, Bel Pre in Aspen Hill, Hampshire Towers, Rosemary 88, that's the MoCo hoods I know of.

This is not even remotely related to the topic. I mean I tried to make the connection, but couldn't. What does this have to do with Dave & Busters or retail?

and you delusional thinking that a house in any of those areas trumps a equally fabulous one on waterfront property in Fort Washington. or one on beautiful rural farm land in Upper Marlboro. Maybe YOU should get out of MOCO and drive through other parts of Maryland lol. Do u think only nice neighborhoods exist in Montgomery County? BTW Your neighbor Howard County is the wealthiest county in Maryland and has been for a while not Montgomery county. So if anyone should be bragging it should be them
