What to do on a snow day

On a lovely snow day like today, wouldn’t it be great to live in a community in which you could walk to the grocery store or cure cabin feature with a short stroll to a movie theater or restaurant? Someday, we’ll have exactly that in the Pike District. We partially have it now, with North Bethesda I and Pike and Rose, and over the next decade or two, the White Flint area will become ever more walkable … even on snow days.

But if you’ve shoveled out your car, or are fortunate enough to already live in walking distance of the current fabulous Pike District restaurants, here’s a few ideas for making the most of your snow day.

Pike and Rose

Catch a movie at Ipic

Grab food and a drink at Del Frisco’s Grille, City Perch, Summer House, Stella Barra Pizzeria, Starbucks, Tutti Fruiti, or Chipotle

North Bethesda  Market

Stock up for a marathon baking session at Whole Foods  Market

Enjoy a drink or food at Paladar, Brio, or Seassons 52

And if you lose power and need a place to stay, don’t forget about the Bethesda North Marriott.
