NEW HOURS AT BARNES & NOBLE SUGGEST BETHESDA TURNS IN EARLY (PHOTOS)
Now popular Bethesda Row hangout Barnes & Noble is having second thoughts about late nights, as well.
Starting today, the bookstore is cutting back its closing time from 11:00 PM to 10:00 PM, Monday through Thursday. Sunday and Friday-Saturday hours will remain the same, as on the now-outdated sign below. That means the store will still be open until 11:00 on Fridays and Saturdays.
Will the doors locking early make the small plaza less welcoming to people hanging out there at night? It seems whatever's been done so far to boost nightlife, it hasn't worked yet in Bethesda.
