So, the Fork & Wrench opened its hand-crafted, perfectly rustic doors in 2012. It is now 2014. And while we’re clearly not the first to sing the praises of this “boutique dive bar,” we will be the first to nab tickets for their Trinchero Napa Valley Wine Blending Dinner on Thursday, March 27th. Tickets go on sale (via the telephone) this evening, at 5pm. The website advises would-be-attendees to “act fast,” which, given the immense (and well-deserved) popularity of this place, is probably pretty sage advice. Read More →
Freelance radio and print journalist Lawrence Lanahan, senior producer of Maryland Morning from 2010-2013 was the project leader for “The Lines Between Us,” WYPR’s an ambitious year-long project about inequality, race, class, and community in Baltimore. The series recently won an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University award – the broadcast journalism equivalent of a Pulitzer.
“The Lines Between Us,” was lauded by Columbia University as an “exploration of housing, education, jobs, history and social networks - described not only by the experts but by those who earn their expertise through lived experience – this series performed a real service to the people of Baltimore.”
Along with being rising star in journalism (“not a growth industry” he says to anyone considering it for a career; it’s more of a calling) Lanahan is a new father, and a musician. His first album in ten years drops this summer, and its going to be soulful. Can anyone say trifecta?

This column, That Nature Show, is about the nature right under your nose: in our backyards, playgrounds and parks! Stop and look around, you’ll be amazed at what surrounds you.
My kids are 6 and 8 and a very young, immature, slow-cooking, innocent 6 and 8 at that. It’s Mister Rogers over here, okay? Oblivious postcard Americana of the 1950s. So imagine the droppage of my jaw when we’re rolling up the wooded drive, home from some meaningless suburban errand — okay, if you must know, we were at Costco getting ridiculous sums of avocados — when my son shouts from the backseat, “Stop the car, Mom! We have to help those foxes!” Read More →
This place is a circus. No, really. It is. Clear the way, because here comes—say it with us—The Greatest Show on Earth. In today’s modern world of high-tech, CGI effects, and lightning-quick-Internet-information-sending, it’s nice to know that some things are still just the same as we remember them. That’s not to say that Ringling Brothers Circus doesn’t dazzle—or that it won’t blow the minds (and eyeballs) of kids being brought up in the era of iPads and Avatar. The wondrous skill and talents of the world’s greatest circus performers truly stands up to the test of time—but they’ll only be here for a hot minute. Read More →
Our daughter “Emma” has been out of college for a few years and is in her late 20s, so my wife and I don’t have much influence over her anymore. She has a job and a boyfriend about 2 hours away from us and sees us maybe five or six times a year, usually vacation time for her and during the holidays.
What’s bothering my wife and I is that Emma has been putting on weight steadily since college and is getting noticeably heavy (at least to us). Her mother and I both know that nagging doesn’t work, but my wife especially thinks that this weight gain is worrisome, and to tell the truth I’d like to see my daughter the way she used to be. Is there anything we can do besides telling her how we feel?
What do you have in mind? Ground her if she doesn’t listen to you? As you say, you “don’t have much influence over her,” so recognize that you are not going to be able to get Emma to change her habits. What you can do is to maintain contact with her via email, or phone, or whatever is her transmission device of choice. Read More →

Courtesy of LWON or lastwordonnothing.com - The latest snowstorm was only somewhere around 5 inches, depending where in the yard I stuck my ruler, and as usual the Capital Weather Gang had nailed it. I’d written them asking if I could interview them for this post, but at the time they didn’t answer, so intent they were on predicting the upcoming storm down to the last flake, path, county, minute, percentage, and error bar. This time they’d said 5 to 9 inches – the National Weather Service was going with 8 to 12 but eventually came down – unless the dry, cold air got here faster than the models showed, which it did. The Weather Gang are open about their passion for snow, but they earnestly consider all scenarios and their pronouncements are such that one can have faith in them. I take the Weather Gang as my personal savior.
