MARYLAND/WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Nighthawks had no trouble filling the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club tonight.
Rick Brown, owner says, "We have live music every night. We had Maggie Rose, Marcus Johnson, next week we have Branford Marsalis."
Brown says nightlife lives here. To be clear, Bethesda has bars, music, good food, but is it the, let's say, khaki pants to Adams Morgan's tatted-up trendsters?
Bottom line, Montgomery County wants to attract and keep a younger nightlife crowd.
Ike Leggett, Montgomery County Executive believes to the degree that people move into the county, they want things to do in the county, to the degree that the work in the county, in enhances our tax base.
We thought we'd take our own pulse. Tonight, we pit Bethesda against Adams Morgan.
