MIA'S PIZZAS HOPES TO REOPEN TODAY AFTER POWER OUTAGE - DUE TO SNOWPLOW ACCIDENT(!) (PHOTOS)
At least 2 Bethesda restaurants appear to have sustained damage from Monday's minor blizzard - and a snowplow. While Pepco restored power to hundreds of customers after a dump truck (with snowplow raised in the air) struck power lines on Cordell Avenue, Mia's Pizzas remained without electricity last night. A pole in front of the pizza parlor remains on the ground.
Next door neighbor Gringos & Mariachis seems to have a non-electrical problem: damage to its brand-new awning out front. Examine this photo to see for yourself:
Was it what Roscoe P. Coltrane would call, "a horrendous crash?"
Mia's is hoping to reopen today. Gringos and Mariachis is open.
