Pepco snips wrong wire, shuts down Bethesda restaurant (Photos)
If you noticed Bethesda Barbecue Company closed at 4917 Elm Street in recent days, it wasn't by the restaurant's choice. BBC says a Pepco worker mistakenly cut the wrong power line on April 17, causing the restaurant's ventilation system to shut down. The resulting damage has taken days to fix, but they had the smoker ready yesterday.
The restaurant is scheduled to open on time this morning, at 11:30 AM.
This may be where the wire was cut, below Elm Street
