pirateofdestiny: I have a question...
Does anyone here know the Gaithersburg area well? There's a concert I've been wanting to go to that's at the Old Town Firehouse in Gaithersburg next month. I went to the bands site to get the directions, but they have none :/ So, I was just wondering if anyone here knows the area or heard of the place.

Gaithersburg is a bit of a drive from southern Maryland, at least an 1.5-2 hours away for most areas. It's toward the north-western part of Montgomery county, so you need to drive up 495 and then take 270 to Gaithersburg. I don't know enough about it to give specific directions (I'll leave that to google maps) but it's a nice area. On the way up, you could eat in Rockville or Bethesda if you really want a good restaurant selection. Leave plenty of time for travel and keep rush hour in mind. Just going from College Park up to 270 from 4pm-7pm can take an hour or more on the wrong day, and there are a lot of wrong days on the Beltway.
