Kate Spade at Bethesda Row pays tribute to founder

The Kate Spade New York boutique at 4803 Bethesda Avenue is paying tribute to the brand's namesake founder, who died at age 55 on Tuesday. A solid black sign in the front window reads, "Kate Spade, the visionary founder of our brand has passed. Our thoughts are with her family at this incredibly heartbreaking time. We honor all the beauty she brought into this world."

So if it is a solid black sign, how can you read the type?

Totally stupid. She hasn't been with the company for a long time and hasn't owned it in years.

On another thread a post mentioned "Bethesda Chevy Chase Back in the Day" on Facebook.

Between that and the resulting Pinterests...that was a fun hour of reminiscing! Seeing the various businesses in the old photos, remembering the people who worked at the shops, and how much fun it was for an 8-year old girl to spend my Saturdays walking and exploring around Bethesda.

What a terrific mention, so a big thank you, thank you to whoever posted it.

It was an apparent suicide. Dyer's post nor the sign seems to mention that key detail.

In which Dyer and/or his Little Helper compare him to Anthony Bourdain

Dyer is Bethesda's best known restaurant critic.

"The same anonymous nut at 1:52pm & 1:47pm,etc. watches Anthony Bourdain and shouts at the TV, calling Bourdain a freeloader, an alcoholic and demands Bourdain's tax returns."

Robert Dyer posted:

"Riemer's disdain for his suburban constituents, who represent a majority of County residents, raises questions as to how he intends to get anything done this year. It also brought to mind a quote from chef Anthony Bourdain:

"He’s a classic example of the smirking, contemptuous, privileged guy who lives in a bubble. And he is in no way looking to reach outside, or even look outside, of that bubble, in an empathetic way.”
