It was a sad day in the DMV, back on February 14th, when we woke up and learned that the iconic Hank Dietle's Tavern on Rockville Pike caught fire overnight and burned to the ground.
The bar was the first in MOCO to receive a liquor license and had been a fixture in the community for over 100 years.
But the good news is, owner Tony Huniak says he's planning to rebuild! He met with county officials and received the preliminary ok to repair the property.
It's estimated that Dietle's could reopen by this summer! YAY!
A fundraiser will be held in April and bands that played at Dietle's over the years will be performing.
