North Ave just regained a tiny bit of its old charm, as the Centre Theatre facade finally got some letters back up there. The renovation is part of joint effort by Johns Hopkins, MICA, and the Maryland Film Festival to spruce up and occupy both the old Parkway Theatre (read about that here) and Centre Theatre across the street.

House of Cards fans

If your typical House of Cards style is to binge-watch each season as it comes out, you should know that researchers say it “should no longer be viewed as a ‘harmless’ addictive behavior.” Instead, it should be viewed as an indicator of depression, loneliness, and an inability to control compulsions. (By the way, for this study, watching even three episodes at a time counts as binge-watching.) Read More →

Raven Will Hill with a warrant for his arrest

Everyone was hoping the Baltimore Ravens would stay out of trouble this offseason. After the team’s postseason loss to the New England Patriots, head coach John Harbaugh “remind[ed] the guys that how we handle ourselves is always important.” He said he thought “that was enough.” Well, I don’t even think the offseason has technically begun, and safety Will Hill, 24, has got a warrant for his arrest in New Jersey for unpaid child support.

Grand Cru Wine Bar to be Sold to Unitas Grandson

4 Written by: | Thursday, Jan 22, 2015 1:57pm


I guess I knew this might be coming. Grand Cru, the wonderful little wine bar at Belvedere Square, is being sold. As many know, Grand Cru’s former owner, Nelson Carey, died suddenly last summer. I wrote about it. That was a hard one to write, since I knew Nelson pretty well and always loved seeing him in the bar. We’d catch up, talk about food and wine, but mostly just enjoy each other’s company. What a good and kind person he was. Read More →

Ravens coach responds to Deflategate

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh
