  1. Just saw in the paper that Liberty Road Seafood is for sale and I drove by Rib City they had a sign in their door they were closed as well.


    • the quizno’s in Mt. Airy closed too, and I think maybe even the one at the movie theater? it looks like the entire frederick-area chain of quiznos closed.


      • Yes, all Frederick area Quiznos restaurants are closed. The one in Westview on Buckeystown Pike (near the movie theater) went bankrupt and they were evicted. The one on Rt. 26 closed sometime ago. The last remaining one was the one on Route 40 (Golden Mile) near the old Giant (also closed), but it recently closed as well. The only one left in Frederick County is in Thurmont, and that one is not doing too well either.


  2. Heard the owner of Liberty Road Seafood went bankrupt. Rib City got pretty poor reviews and I’m sure after the big office buildings over there emptied out they lost a lot of lunch and after work dinner business.


  3. Liberty Road has been in business for a long time. I agree, I wasn’t a big fan of Rib City it was just okay. They need something to draw more people to that shopping center!


  4. Saw the liberty road article and also see Frederick Mayor Randy has sold his bagel shop. New owners but at least they are continuing onward. Hate seeing empty shops… but restaurant work must be so hard, long hours, on your feet, imagine profit margins are quite slim.


  5. I spend some time visiting with the elderly and wonder if there is a radio station that plays 1940’s music. Can anyone help?


  6. I know I’m a little late, for the open thread but I’m hoping you all can help. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a place to go if you are a newbie to Yoga in Frederick? I’ve never taken a class, only done a few videos.

    Thanks for any advice!!



    • Ananda Shala has beginner workshops. I haven’t taken it, but I’ve been to a few of the classes there and it’s a really peaceful setting and I’ve always had good and helpful instructors. They have tons of info on their site. I’ve found their class descriptions/levels to be very accurate.

      There’s also the Center of the Four Winds Studio, which in my opinion wins the coolest most awesome yoga studio concept ever. Rose is an amazing yogi who will have you relaxed within the first few minutes. Plus, she practices “seva” which means you pay what you wish/can afford for classes and make a commitment to serving others. Love her classes.


  7. Join us for a documentary screening of “Community Acupuncture – The Calmest Revolution Ever Staged”

    Join us for the Maryland premiere of a new documentary by award-winning filmmaker Brian Lindstrom, co-produced by Frederick resident and business owner Jessica Feltz. The film is: “Community Acupuncture: The Calmest Revolution Ever Staged.” Lindstrom is well-known for his cinema-verite style, shooting and editing himself. The film follows six diverse community acupuncture patients and shows the impact of affordable acupuncture on their lives and communities. Lindstrom tells the story of the community acupuncture movement: how a small group of loud-mouthed, over-educated, under-employed activists and a massive group of ordinary people with average incomes revolutionized healthcare services by using large empty rooms, old recliner chairs, and two-cent needles.

    Doors at MDL Holiday Cinemas will open at 6:00 pm on January 30th, with the screening beginning at 6:30. Tickets for the documentary are $10 and are redeemable for one free acupuncture session at The Turning Point. Tickets can be purchased in advance at The Turning Point, 243 W Patrick Street in downtown Frederick. They will also be available in advance and at the door at MDL Holiday Cinemas.

  9. I just walked by the former Ethiopian restaurant on E. Patrick street. It’s closed and the Coming Soon sign that is in the window says Sabor de Cuba. Someone mentioned it on here recently that this was happening and just wanted to verify that it has. No clue if this is the same people who used to run That Cuban Place.
