Canton Residents Take Security Into Their Own Hands

0 Written by: | Monday, Jul 28, 2014 11:59am


Although violent crime is down across the city, Canton has been the site of numerous break-ins/robberies/thefts in recent months. Many residents are concerned, but fancy security systems are quite pricey. So what’s an anxious Cantonite to do? Why, join the Canton Neighbors Security Camera Group, of course.

Farmstead Shack 3

The new fast-casual (and delicious) Farmstead Shack is now open in Canton.

Former Dogwood Cafe Chef Galen Sampson is at the helm here, as well as at the larger (and affordable!) full restaurant, Farmstead Grill. At Farmstead Shack, you can grab ‘n go (or sit awhile) from from 7:30am to dusk. On the menu: breakfast biscuits, house-made dogs and brats, fresh-pressed juices, smoothies, and beer and wine. Soon they will add snowballs, happy hours, lawn parties and more. Did you say LAWN parties? Are they like field parties from high school? Okay, probably not.  Read More →

Canton Man Kayaks, Swims to Rescue Puppy from Harbor

Canton Man Kayaks

Matt Corasanti of Canton may enjoy kayaking in the harbor after work, but I’ll bet he’s not typically very eager to swim in its notoriously polluted waters. But sometimes there’s a puppy that needs your help.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Corasanti was just wrapping up his evening kayaking session when he was approached by a “frantic” man whose dog had fallen into the water.

Corasanti, who quickly re-kayaked, paddled his way toward the puppy. But when he found he couldn’t reach the dog, he did something every Baltimorean hopes he will never be forced to do: take a dip in the harbor.

Corasanti, doing his best “not to get any water in [his] eyes or mouth” swam to dog and and handed him off to his owner who reached down from the dock.

The first thing Corasanti did when he got home? Took a shower. Let’s hope the puppy got a bath.

I’ll admit, Chick-Fil-A is pretty good, as far as fast food restaurants go. Those waffle cut fries are delicious! But I can guarantee you, you’ll never ever catch me camping out in front of a fast food restaurant, awaiting its opening.

Baltimore-Developed Parking App: Will It Solve Your Federal Hill Parking Woes?

0 Written by: | Tuesday, May 27, 2014 8:30am


This morning, the Baltimore Sun has a big article on a new app developed by a 24-year-old Canton man. Haystack aims to help beleaguered Baltimore drivers find parking spots by allowing users to alert each other to open parking spots. Why Haystack? Because “anyone from Canton, Fells Point or Federal Hill knows that finding parking can be like finding a needle in a haystack.”

Of course, Haystack developer Eric Meyer doesn’t expect people to engage out of the goodness of their hearts. If you find a parking spot using Haystack, you pay $3; if you leave a spot that someone else takes, you get $2.25. Haystack pockets the remaining 75 cents.

Not everyone is excited about Meyer’s app, which he describes as “kind of like Uber meets Tindr,” and which he predicts “could be big for Baltimore and really help solve a major problem.”

The app should be available for both Android and iOS systems as of this evening.
