HAPPENING In & Around Prince George’s This Weekend

I have NO IDEA what’s going on this Friday because I’m tired.  This blogger is meeting the girls for a decompression dinner in Shirlington and calling it a wrap.  Yes I looked for someplace interesting in Prince George’s County but came up with nothing I was willing to try on such an empty stomach.  I’ll do better this weekend.  WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ME!  *giggle*

    This restaurant is near the Prince George’s County Court House. It has a patio that can be closed in when it gets too cool and provides heat lamps. I enjoyed the food and atmosphere at the bar area. All types of people frequent this restaurant because it is near the courthouse. They also frequent it after hours. They do music events, etc. too.

    There are 2 locations and soon to be 3. The first location is next to Magic Johnson Theaters in Largo. I frequent the newer location in Hyattsville because the restaurant and bar are laid out well. The crowd is family and urban professional oriented. The staff at both locations has been amazing each time I went. The customer service is second to none.

    This restaurant had great entertainment the last time I went there. I always hear good things about the entertainment and the mature, upwardly mobile crowd.

    Mrs. K’s Restaurant and motel

    This is a historic location to African Americans. I think it was one of those motels African Americans making the ride down south or up north would stop at during segregation. Currently, Mrs. K’s makes the BEST blueberry pancakes I have ever, ever, ever tasted. They melt in your mouth. The owner, cook, wait staff, cashiers, and support staff seem to be one big happy family and they love their customers. This restaurant attracts all types of people. You can work on your laptop (not sure if they have wi-fi, read the paper, or watch their big screen tv while waiting for your food.
