At each Discover Long Branch! event, customers will get the chance to personally meet the business owner, enjoy special discounts and be entertained by innovative arts and music in the diverse neighborhood whose boundaries include Piney Branch Road between Flower Avenue and New Hampshire Avenue.
The first Discover Long Branch! event will be held at El Golfo Restaurant on December 3, hosted by owner Ada Villatoro.
El Golfo will offer customers a 25 percent discount on its famously diverse Latino food and desserts. For children of all ages, there will be a giant (8-foot tall) tricycle to ride, weather permitting. The giant tricycle was created by local sculptor Howard Connelly. There will be other artistic attractions as well.
The series is part of a larger community revitalization effort being spearheaded by the newly reformed Long Branch Business League in partnership with MHP and a wide variety of other local non-profits, artists and arts organizations.

About Long Branch Business League
The Long Branch Business League (LBBL) was first organized in 2005 by a group of locally-owned businesses (with help from Montgomery County’s DHCA). In 2011 it was formally reinstated with new officers, and with new plans and ambitions. Its goals include getting the word out about what is already happening in Long Branch -- the comfortable commercial area tucked between Takoma Park and downtown Silver Spring.
