Have you seen this American Flag thief?

This guy with a skateboard stole an American flag made of wood from a porch in Bethesda on Oldchester Road.. and the homeowner’s surveilance cam caught it all. Her neighbor tweeted out the video which shows the guy walk up … and takes a second or so to take the painted wood flag down. On neighbors facebook pages… there’s chatter that similar thefts have happened before in this neighborhood. If you recognize the guy.. call Montgomery County Police.

A taste of Italia comes to Bethesda. We were there for the VIP Grand Opening of Vapiano on Bethesda Row. Between the ages-old  olive trees and the warm mod decor… a blend of past and present was strong in the new restaurant. Vapiano’s offers a neat set-up… celebrating the concept of mediterranean group cooking. Guests’ meals are made-to-order right before your eyes. We tried the bruschetta, warm breads, basil pasta, chicken alfredo and of course thin crust pizza. In the end.. you get a hearty affordable meal while dining among an urban upscale feel.
