Risky Rum co-creators Dan McNeill and Meg MacWhirter March 18 invite everyone to celebrate the grand opening of MISCellaneous Distillery, a local alcohol producer that’s set up shop in neighboring Mount Airy, Md. Establishing the new distilling operation took roughly two years but has already yielded the debut rum and Restless Rye, a whiskey made from locally sourced grains.
The 2,500-square foot facility, located at 114 S. Main St., houses the production area, barrel storage and tasting room. The agenda for the grand opening celebration includes an official ribbon cutting at 2 p.m., followed by a reception with cocktails and appetizers, as well as distillery tours and tastings. Free tickets to the opening are available via eventbrite.
The owners of Mia’s Pizza in Silver Spring, Md., have tweaked the menu, renovated the interior and changed the name to Alatri Bros. According to Bethesda Magazine, the new restaurant will feature expanded and cheaper dining options, as well as cocktails and local beers.
