    Me too. Best I've had is at the Eden Center in Seven Corners. But the ones at the food downtown are pretty damn good as well.

    Song Que was definitely the best. But now if I'm out there I'll hit up Banh Mi DC Sandwich in Falls Church. Super tasty.

    Yes they do! I also used to go to Ba Le in Langley Park, but they closed. You're in Rockville? Do you hit up tennis topia at all? Scott does my stringing.

    tennistopia is a cool place. i always go there to look at new gear. Darrell the owner is a nice guy. The employees there are mostly HS or college kids, so u get the feel of that there. He's the same owner as Drilling's in DC (in the 80s and 90s) btw, saw a 25 off 50 on groupon there if u shop there. I usually hit up R and J down the road for shoes but get most of my gear here. i wear size 15 wide and picky on fitting so getting shoes online is hard except NBs, for some reason they always fit nicely.

    i remember there's also Ba Le's in Rockville before it was sold. they got some great sandwiches and noodles there. i used to talk to the owner the all the time. their business model is set up a store and sell. it worked really well for them.
    welcome to twmac, our mantra is to talk about food more than tennis.

    just strung my racquet on my dropweight. last time i did it was almost a year ago, don't remember my fingers being so sore. wondering if i used zap's Bab Star 10,000 will make my fingers more comfy?

    Yeah it's a fun shop. I hang around sometimes and Scott tells me stories from the road, stringing at the U.S. Open and stuff. I rarely buy equipment there other than grips, tennis balls and the occasional pair of shorts or t-shirt. Mostly go for the stringing and the stories. Oh and to pick over the used racquets. They have two Austrian-made Prestige Tour 600s sitting in there that I always almost buy, but never pull the trigger.

    they got some good used sticks. i saw a prince experimental (James Blake) i almost brought as well there. I had no business buying that stick, felt like swinging a weighted 2x4.

    was the bldg a hospital b4 it got converted to a brewery? i saw a old hospital sign there next to the front door.
    the area is strange, one part looks like where the riots happened, another part its really industrial commerical factory looking, and another part looks like downtown bethesda.

    Yep. I hear Baltimore could field a squad so Howard 2 is in. Looks like a decent chance of rain to foul things up.

    That building was built as a brewery in the 1870's. I think in in the 1970's natty moved operations to a place in Halethorpe. Its all office/retail space and apartments now. Same as the Gunther brewery right across the street.


    Not sure about the hospital sign. But Johns Hopkins is pretty close by

    to live in the actual old brewerys the rent is like 1600 ish a month for 1 bedrooms and 2500ish for 2 bedrooms. They are straight luxury though with granite countertops and all that.

    The surrounding area which is called canton is pretty much your young business professional types and some of the smaller townhouses 2bed 2 ba 1200 sq ft sell in the high 250's. Just about everyhome in that area has been refurbished/rebuilt by now. And is pretty safe for Baltimore. Ill be in the area this weekend competing in what my friends call the lazyman tournament.

    We basically get drunk play stuff like horshoes, croquet, cornhole, yahtzee, beer pong, ring toss, darts, shuffleboard.
