    Breaking food news: The General Store in Kensington/Silver Spring is closed, apparently due to issues with the building’s owner and back taxes. I will be crying buttermilk fried chicken flavored tears for a minimum of 7 weeks. Nothing like beating the crap out of Bobby Flay on TV and then closing up shop.

    “It’s with heavy hearts we’re announcing that The General Store is closed. For the entire 4+ years we’ve been involved with this building we have been bullied by the landlords. The landlord has not paid his back taxes and the county is taking back the building. We want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for being more than just customers. We consider all of you friends.”
