To the lovers of sports bars residing in Silver Spring: be patient, for you'll get your new watering hole soon enough.
Babe's Sports Bar & Grill owner Ron Bouchard says his new joint at 1115 East-West Highway should be opening the weekend of Dec. 18, since the bar's final inspections have been scheduled for next week.
Bouchard originally wanted to open during Thanksgiving weekend, but he couldn't get the restaurant licenses in time for that.
The sports bar, formerly a Tenleytown institution until it was sold to make way for condos, will breathe some life into the space vacated by the club Gallery.
The bar will have televisions throughout, 10 pool tables, two outdoor patios with bars, and a menu chock full of items such as beef franks.
