Has the pandemic made you a cocktail-making connoisseur, spending evenings getting familiar with spirits, liqueurs and maraschino cherries? Spiritually feeling the head nods, I claim you as my people.

Which is why I was tickled to learn that Cheeky’s Vintage – full of eclectic bar, table and kitchenware – will be having its grand opening this Saturday (10/2) at its new location in Hyattsville!

(And this is where the veering-into-creepyland anthropomorphizing will stop.)
Hyattsville City Council passed a motion at its May 3, 2021 meeting to rename the City’s Magruder Park as David C. Driskell Community Park. This new name honors former Hyattsville resident Dr. David C. Driskell, a preeminent artist, historian, curator, and scholar of African American art.
