Pines of Rome – a Bethesda Institution

Pines of Rome

The Pines of Rome was always my uncle’s favorite Italian restaurant in Bethesda. We used to meet there with him and his sons to celebrate big occasions like birthdays. The food is classic old school Italian cuisine that we all grew up with before Italian food became upscale in this country. If you want spaghetti with meatballs on a red and white checked tablecloth like Disney’s Lady and the Tramp, the Pines of Rome is the place for you!

Vinyl or Hardwood?

Vinyl or Hardwood

Vinyl or hardwood is a choice many homeowners have to make. Vinyl plank flooring is a favorite among homeowners who want the look and texture of natural wood or stone without the financial investment.

But if you’re replacing your floors with an eye toward resale, it’s important to know that vinyl plank flooring won’t charm every buyer – particularly if it is not top of the line. Understand your market and potential buyers to decide if vinyl plank flooring is the best upgrade for your soon-to-be-sold space.
