Quincy's for lease in downtown Bethesda (Photos)
Bethesda was hit the hardest by Riemer's fiasco of any town in the County. The other Quincy's locations remain open for business. To add insult to injury, Riemer had promised restaurant and bar owners he would end the County government's antiquated and arcane liquor sales monopoly, only to later do a 180° and take steps to preserve and strengthen that hated monopoly. That liquor regime alone puts a heavier financial burden on MoCo restaurateurs and bar owners, compared to their peers in D.C. and Virginia, in an already-slim profit margin business.
