Here's the part where you tell me how wrong (or how right!) I was on a review. This week's bar review is about Growlers of Gaithersburg, which received a face-lift from new management this January. Growlers is handsome and spacious. And, "For beer lovers, [it's] a treat. By the bottle, the bar carries 16 brands, but they are mostly your standard domestics and imports.

Have you been since the renovation?

Steven Leibowitz is trying to run as fast as he can, but the trail is muddy and tree roots are hiding under the soil, slowing him down. Now there's a stream blocking his path, with no way to cross, save a few widely spaced rocks. But Leibowitz can't give up. He has to keep running. It might sound like a scene from "The Hunger Games" or "The Blair Witch Project. " But for a runner in the XTERRA Trail Run Series, it's just the path to the finish line.
