Jersey Mike's Subs Opens this Wednesday in Riverdale Park w/ Fundraiser for Joe's Movement Emporium!

Jersey Mike's Subs is opening its first Riverdale Park location this Wednesday, August 1st!  To kick off their grand opening, they're holding a free sub fundraiser from Wednesday, August 1st to Sunday, August 5th in support of Joe's Movement Emporium! What does this mean? It means that if you use this coupon (print or show on phone) during those days, you can get a free sub just for donating $2 or more to Mt. Rainier's Joe's Movement Emporium!  👏 Lunch this week? Done! ✅

Jersey Mike's Subs Riverdale Park Maryland

I stopped by Jersey Mike's Subs Riverdale Park location a couple of weeks back to get a sneak peek and chat with Kyle Yancey, Jersey Mike's VP of Operations for this area. In addition to sharing how all the subs are sliced to order, how the bread is baked for the day and the vegetables are all from local producers, Kyle shared that he's a native of Greenbelt and currently resides in Hyattsville with his family. Yay! Dig all the local love going on right there!  😊 I will also note that Kyle is really down to earth dude who worked his way up through the ranks at Jersey Mike's over the years; I imagine he'd be a good boss. Putting that out there as he mentioned that they were hiring for all types of positions at this location.  

I also dig how Jersey Mike's Subs makes it a priority to give back to the local communities by hosting Day of Giving fundraisers that, since 2010, have raised over $34 million for charities in their local communities. 👏

Jersey Mike's Subs is located at 6761 45th Street, Riverdale Park, Maryland (10am-9pm, seven days a week). If you stop by, let me know what sub you got and what you think! :)

DC's Taqueria Habanero Coming to College Park, Maryland

Thanks to a tip from Route One Fun ladyfan, Annie Campbell, it looks like DC's Taqueria Habanero will soon be opening a new location in College Park, Maryland! Appears that the Mexican restaurant will be located along the Route One Corridor in the Campus Village Shoppes (same area as where Pho D'Lite, Poh-Yo Rotisserie and College Park Liquors (It all clicked for you after I mentioned that last one, didn't it? 😆))

According to Taqueria Habanero's website, owners Dionicio Montero and Mirna Alvarado worked for Chef Jose Andres soon after immigrating to the United States twenty years ago. Their DC location gets tons of good reviews, with folks applauding their "authentic Mexican" cuisine, including tortillas, huaraches, salsa and quesadillas made on the spot. The menu is full of tacos, tortas, quesadillas, fajitas, enchiladas, chilaquiles and a section for vegetarians, including mushrooms tacos, cactus tacos and memelas!

Not having been to DC's Taqueria Habanero before, I asked Annie for her thoughts on this Mexican restaurant, to which she noted: "If it's the same place that's on 14th in Columbia Heights, LOTS OF 👍👍👍👍."  Seeing as Annie is the local fiber artist and the creative force behind Black Radish Handmade, I'm gonna take her word for it!

🌮 Between Edmonston's Taqueria La Placita, Riverdale's Las Comadres and Taqueria El Mexicano in Hyattsville, we really do have great Mexican restaurants nearby - and soon we'll have one more!

As gratitude for this knowledge drop, go ahead and check out Annie's Etsy shop here - beautiful handmade goods like vibrant cowl-neck scarves, vegan rainbow wraps,  merino shawls and more!

Inside Streetcar 82 Brewing Co in Hyattsville, Maryland!

Streetcar 82 Brewing Company Hyattsville
Streetcar 82's Mark Burke
Streetcar 82 Brewing Company in Hyattsville recently opened its craft beer doors with special hours as the Gallaudet grads put the final touches on what's already become a go-to spot for beer lovers all along Maryland's Route One Corridor and Washington, DC! Haven't had a chance to stop by yet?  Then enjoy this delightfully amateur video of the inside magic of Streetcar 82!

This week's beer taps included a Stout with Belgian yeast, a Stout with English yeast, an American Pale Ale and a New England IPA. 🍺 While I didn't get to imbibe this round, I'm looking forward to checking out all of the beer taps soon! :)  Speaking of, be sure to check their Facebook and Instagram accounts for latest operating hours. Cheers! 🍺

Have you stopped by yet? Will you buy me a round? ðŸ˜‰

More about Streetcar 82 Brewing Co from their website:

The name:

"Our brewery takes its name from the 82 Streetcar line which ran from 1888 until its closing on September 7, 1958. This line started at 5th & G St and continued through the neighborhoods of Eckington, Woodridge, Mt. Rainier, Hyattsville, and College Park. The video on the introduction page chronicles the route starting at the intersection of Florida Ave and New York Ave in NE DC and runs through all the neighborhoods listed above. The route follows Rhode Island Ave (Rt. 1) for the majority of the trip. We chose this name because all three of us live on the path this line took through our neighborhoods and we can easily imagine ourselves hopping onto Streetcar 82 and meeting up at our brewery to make and drink craft beer!"

The Location:

In one word...community. Community is very important to the three of us. We all graduated from Gallaudet University, a tight-knit community which is right down the road from our location. After we graduated, we left to start our careers in different parts of the country. All three of us came back here because of the community support that is unique to this area. We have the support of a large Deaf community, each of our neighborhoods (Eckington, Woodridge, and Hyattsville) has a unique, distinctive identity, and small town feel. We know our neighbors and we can say, "Hello, how is your spouse/family/dog/cat doing?" This is something that we all feel deeply about and want to create a place where people can come together, be neighborly, and enjoy beer.

In short:

Local? ✅ You betcha! Mark Burke lives in Hyattsville, Jon Cetrano in Woodridge and Sam Costner in Eckington.
Food? Bring your own Baby changing table? ✅
Kids' games? ✅ (cornhole and hopefully soon getting a life-sized tic-tac-toe game)
Delicious beer? ✅
Dog-friendly? ✅

If you want some Streetcar 82 gear, head over to their Kickstarter page and check 'em out!

Streetcar 82 Brewing Co is located at 4824 Rhode Island Ave, Hyattsville MD 20781

Help Local Mt. Rainier Family Recover After Devastating House Fire

A local Mt. Rainier family recently lost everything in their lifelong home of 25 years when it caught fire last Friday night. Neighbor Beth Skirkanich has put together this GoFundMe page with a goal of raising $5,000 to help Nicholas and Ligia Williams get through the next couple of months. Time and again, our local communities have come together to help one another, especially at times like this. If you have a minute and the means, please visit the GoFundMe page and do what you can to help Mt. Rainier's Mr. & Ms. Williams.

According to an email from Carthy Boston, the family has an immediate need for the following items:
  • Rain jacket shell, umbrella, Shoes:5.5” women’s and 8.5” men’s. Pants, men’s 34” x 30” woman’s pants. Small or Petites in women’s clothing. Blankets, used laptop, flashlight, hammer.
  • And any Glut Certificates (they start at $10, $25 etc) for Food items.
"Mayor Miles has given CERT the go ahead to use The police Department as a drop off point for any goods. Please identify them as CERT - Williams. If the police department is closed feel free to send an email to [ cdorset at yahoo dot com ] and we will have the items collected and get them to the family."

Excerpted from GoFundMe page:

"Nicolas and Ligia Williams are the kind-hearted and gentle Mount Rainier residents who recently lost everything in their lifelong home of 25 years when it caught on fire, burned to pieces Friday night. Our town, the City of Mt. Rainier is a close-knit community where love and art comes together, and city residents aren’t bashful about sharing, caring, swapping goods and helping each other out. I was moved to do this act of kindness because 15 years ago the Williams family welcomed me into this artsy city with opened arms. They are more than my neighbors they are good trusted friends.

Last night, in less than one hour everything they owned was gone, burned beyond recognition. The firefighters of this great city did a fantastic job keeping the fire contained and city residents came together to offer support in this unfortunate tragedy. I was moved at how unique this town truly is – a loving supportive community. I would like to thank and I know they would as well, everyone for their gracious and generous assistance that has been provided thus far; the Williams will need a lot more help to get back on their feet.

We are all very grateful that there was no loss of life, I know there will be hard times ahead for the Williams. I'd like to ask all of you reading this to donate what ever amount you can, nothing is too small, to help them through their very rough transition in the next few months. They are my neighbors and my friends and welcomed me into the neighborhood when I moved here. I'd love to show them support from the city that they have poured their hearts into since they first became residents 25 years ago. Their home was possibly one of the oldest in the city, dating to pre-1900s. and this Go Fund Me page was created to help them get on a path of getting their basic and immediate needs met.

If your reading this page, it means that you care. Please donate any little, or any amount to help the Williams get back to the life they once knew, having a place to call home. (all proceeds with the exception of a small fee which GFM takes, will go directly to the William's Family)

To help me get the word out, and get others that you know might want to help to donate please share this link to your Twitter pages, Facebook Timelines, email the link to friends/family, and any known Mount Rainier residents.

Thank you for all your kindness."

&pizza Now Open at Hyattsville's Mall at Prince George's!

Walked by the other day to see that &pizza just opened at Hyattsville's Mall at Prince George's!

&Pizza Hyattsville Mall at Prince George's

Dig that they have a number of options for a variety of dietary needs.  For instance, they're dairy-free mozzeralla, spicy chickpea and vegan sausage. They also offer gluten-free crust.

I believe &pizza is only accessible from the outside (right next to the new Chipotle). I hope they can add a couple of tables and chairs for some outdoor seating. 😃

&Pizza Hyattsville Mall at Prince George's

Looks like it will be open 7 days a week, 11am - 10pm.

Between Hyattsville's Pizzeria Paradiso, Riverdale Park's MOD Pizza, College Park's variety of pizza places and now &Pizza, think we're reaching pizza lovers paradise!

Have you stopped by &pizza yet? Is it kid-friendly (inc. changing table in bathrooms)?  Will check out soon, too, and report back!

Where am I Wednesday?!?

⏰Time for #whereamiwednesday! ⏰ Do you know where in Prince George's County these beautiful works of art by local Prince George's County Public Schools' students can be found?

High School Mural Project, Gorgeous Prince George's

There are, in fact, a number of paintings on the walls of this location that are part of the Gorgeous Prince George's: Then & Now High School Mural Project. According to a nearby description: "The Gorgeous Prince George's Mural Project gave high school visual arts students the opportunity to depict a scene in Prince George's County from colonial times to the present. One hundred and forty-two students from 12 high schools participated in the project....As a result, students researched the history of Prince George's County and the history of their school's neighborhood and community."  

Here's another from the walls of this secret place: 

Sooooo - where have you seen these murals before?!?  Play along in the comments here or on Route One Fun's Facebook and Instagram pages!

According to this article here (which you cannot read until you've made a guess!): "While it’s a little worse for wear, 'Huey' still serves as a shining example of timeless aerospace design."

Spotted! Funky Bike Shaped Bike Racks in Riverdale Park

Now when you bike to the Riverdale Park Farmers Market, or Town Center Market, or Archie Edwards, or Bikram Yoga or maybe even to the MARC Station, you'll have three more ways to lock those wheels up!

According to the Town of Riverdale Park's Waverly Pollitt, the Town installed the bike rack recently at the intersection of Queensbury Road and Rhode Island Ave. Fun, funky colored rack is a nice addition to the area!

MOM's Organic Market reopens College Park Store with PINBALL Machines, Cafe & Vegetarian Eatery!

MOM's Organic Market reopened their College Park store in the former REI spot, which means that it's got way more space to showcase their goods!  We stopped by the other day and have got plenty of pics to share - including thoughts on MOM's Naked Lunch eatery, it's Witches Brew Café and its PINBALL room! Yes, there's an entire room at MOM's filled with pinball machines - 29 to be precise (and more to come)!

MOM's Organic Market Pinball Arcade College Park Vegan Vegetarian
Friendly Carlos, reading & willing to help! :) 
As you enter, fresh produce is to your right and the Witches Brew Café is straight ahead. Nice being able to get a coffee right as you start your shopping expedition! (It's worth noting that as before, they still offer free, smaller cups of coffee for customers (towards back of the store.)) 

MOM's Organic Market Pinball Arcade College Park Vegan Vegetarian

After I made my way though as many aisles as I could with two rambunctious kiddos in tow, we made our way to the prized pinball room.  Feast your eyes:

MOM's Organic Market Pinball Arcade College Park Vegan Vegetarian

Make sure to bring a couple of dollar or five dollar bills as most machines cost $0.50; there is a change machine located inside the room. 👏 My youngest was a bit too short to be able to properly play without assistance, so afterwards I asked the manager if they'd consider buying a couple of step stools for the younger/shorter crew. He seemed really receptive so hopefully that will save some of you with young ones in tow from future meltdowns!

MOM's Organic Market Pinball Arcade College Park Vegan Vegetarian

Naked Café is definitely going to be on one of my go-tos! Their menu is quite expansive, food was swiftly prepared and the service was terrific. After picking up my order, we made our way to the seating area by the windows to enjoy some delish, vegan cauliflower tacos (roasted cauliflower, seasoned chick peas, kale slaw, salsa verde and vegan crema). 🌮 (They're also got burgers, juices, desserts, etc. Full menu here.)

There's also a seating area by the pinball room.

On the food front, I noticed at least three, tall refrigerators specifically for frozen gluten-free food as well as an aisle for dry, gluten-free products. On the logistics side, they now have at least 5 cash registers, making check-out a breeze! And they still will carry your bags to your car for you should you desire (love this courtesy)!

OK - that's what I've got from our quick jaunt there!  Have you been yet?  What did you see or like?  Share below!

Where Am I Wednesday! (+ Help Restore Patriotico!)

What a fitting #whereamiwednesday for this 4th of July! 💥 Do you know where Patriotico, this beautiful bird sculpture by Gloria Valdes "Tarasca" calls home?

According to the Hyattsville CDC, Patriotico was part of a public arts program called "birds I view," created with the goal of promoting tourism in the area, highlighting local artists and raising funds for youth art programs. According to local resident Sarah Elder, the sculpture was purchased by several local families to be displayed at the local school. (I'll update with correct location as soon as one of you enters the correct answer!)  Unfortunately, someone shot the bird with a beebee gun and it now has a hole in it, which morphed into a crack. 😢

Sarah is raising money to help restore Patriotico back to her shining glory! She's located a local sculptor who will make the necessary repairs at a cost of $3,600. Sarah has proposed a match to challenge folks to donate (i.e. for every $100 donated, she will match $100 up to $1,000).

Interested in helping Patriotico get her groove back? Check out the GoFundMe page here!

Cafecito y Alfajores by the Hyattsville Library? YES! Vie Cafe to Open this Fall!

A number of times when I'm on my way to the Hyattsville Library, usually kid (or three) in tow, I've longed (in an up to now unrequited way) for a nice post-library coffee - one that I can get to without needing to cross East West Highway or Belcrest Road. Basically, one right by the library. Turns out, my longing has not been for naught as Vie Café plans to open on the ground level of nearby Vie Towers later this Fall!

Vie Cafe Hyattsville
Café y alfajores! 😍
I caught up with Joana Filgueiras last week and peppered her with questions about the forthcoming spot. Initially, I was concerned that it was just going to be a Keurig-style place (no judgements; we have a Keurig, too, but coffee out = no Keurig unless you're at a hotel). I digress.  Back to Joana:

Vie Cafe Hyattsville
Courtesy Vie Café.
"Our coffee is Grand Havana, a Miami-based brand, woman owned. We will be serving some delicious Cuban coffee (Cafecito). We are working with local companies for food and we already have an incredible vegan vendor - also woman owned - and a company that will have alfajores for us."

Vie Cafe Hyattsville
Git in mah belly! 📷 source Vie Café Instagram

When I asked whether this would be a sit down or a to-go type place, Joana shared: "We will have a lot of sitting space and planning on having other events and specials, like maybe live music, poetry, book readings, etc." She also confirmed that they will indeed have free Wi-Fi.

Score on all accounts! And if you've never had Cuban coffee or an Alfajor, you're in for a treat!

Vie Café will be located at 6515 Belcrest Road, Hyattsville, 20782.

Have you liked Route One Fun on Facebook yet? Go ahead! Do it! :) 

WaWa Coming to the Adelphi Pool (practically)!

You heard me right!  Well, kind of. 😉 A WaWa is likely coming to the NW corner of Adelphi & Riggs Road, which means it will be a stone's throw from the Adelphi Pool. 👏 (And everywhere else, of course, but we're especially excited as we frequent this intersection many times a summer on our way to the Adelphi Pool!)

There are currently three WaWa locations in Prince George's County (Beltsville, Upper Marlboro, and Capitol Heights). In terms of timing, this location is just in the planning stages, so an actual, customized WaWa sandwich in hand is a ways away, but still! 

Source: WaWa's Instagram Page
Why is this a cause for celebration?  Because WaWa is pretty much the best convenience store around. It's consistently clean, excellent variety, coffee is decent, staff are usually Ok-to-friendly and you can make a bunch of stuff to order using their nifty touch screens. This is a relief for someone like me who is quite particular (read: high maintenance) with her sandwich / hoagie / hero order.  Ordering up their own sandwich via WaWa's touchscreens is also something that the kiddos look forward to on long road trips up to NY via Delaware/New Jersey.

Source: WaWa's Instagram Page
Still curious? Go ahead - just ask anyone who's lived in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware or Florida what they think of WaWa. The affection rises to the level of that for Wegmans, you feel me? And if you haven't been to Wegmans in Lanham (or any location) yet, me and my part-Buffalonian heart wonder if there's any hope left for you. 😆

There's a reason why WaWa's known as the Trader Joe's of convenience stores. And soon, you'll know why! :)
