A big ol’ Rockville welcome goes out to the folks at the all-new Pickle Barrel Restaurant in the space formerly occupied by Brenda’s Restaurant just off of Ashland Road. They’re serving up good down-home cooking at reasonable prices and are open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Check ‘em out!
Join the Rockvlle Ruritans for Bingo Night on Friday, March 10, at 7 p.m. at the Rockville Center on Pouncey Tract Road.

Teens and ‘tweens are invited to the Cochrane Rockville Library on Tuesday, March 14 for Make and Take Movie Night beginning at 4:30 p.m. You’ll have the chance to hang out with friends, news sh on pizza and other snacks, and make a cool themed craft while watching the movie inspiring it.
