As the weather gets warmer, a young Baltimorean’s thoughts turn to frosty pints, or spiked lemonade, or minty mojitos, or crisp glasses of Vino Verde. There’s something extra-refreshing about having a drink outside on a balmy night; here are some of our favorite places to do just that. Add your own favorites in the comments! Read More →
Read our Big Fish with Larry Gibson, Correcting Facts on “Young Thurgood”: Big Fish Q&A with UM Law Professor Larry Gibson.
Some of the greatest finds are found in the weirdest of places. Wonderful pieces of jewelry come from the world’s dingiest street markets, and that painting you never knew you needed is generally in that random antique store you’ve only stepped in once in your life. The main reason to even go to this sort of thing is to discover just what you’ve been missing your entire life. Thankfully, the people who bring you the Kinetic Sculpture Race every May, and a multitude of other wonderful programs throughout the year at the American Visionary Arts Museum, are throwing a Barn Sale this Saturday. From 9:00a – 4:00p, bring your own reusable bags and fill them to the brim with deals on the wonderful, absurd, and quixotic. As they say on their site, “ Help us clear out our hoard & get your hands on some amazing artwork, books, cards & publications, copiers, computers & office supplies, vintage & not so vintage Apple equipment, retro AVAM & Kinetic memorabilia, plenty of art fixins, & loads more… it’s a picker’s paradise! Free & Open to the public, cash & credit accepted, all proceeds benefit AVAM.” Read More →
Baltimore has a wealth of talented musicians. From the rowhousehold names of Dan Deacon and Beach House, to whoever may be playing at Joe Squared on any given night, it is obvious that we are rich in musical artistry. I am quite the proponent of all things WTMD, but especially of their weekly segment, Baltimore Unsigned, which highlights only local talent every Tuesday starting at 9:00p. It was through Sam Sessa and Baltimore Unsigned that I learned of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, a Baltimore funk/electronic/jam band.
The Pigeons play regularly at the 8×10 in Federal Hill, which is precisely where they’ll be tomorrow night. The only thing better than an hour of highlighted Baltimore music on WTMD, is an entire live show of Baltimore music, in Baltimore, while sipping a ‘Boh. Read More →
Yesterday, we feared we wouldn’t have anything to talk about this week besides planning our Super Bowl party. Then this little notice came across our desk: 72-hour hot stone massage deal from the Healing Path. Suddenly, we’ve forgotten all about chicken wings and football-shaped cakes and that Ray Lewis person. If you need us, we’ll be lying face down on a table saying “ahhhhhhhhh” over and over again. And you can, too. And if you purchase the special deal that Healing Path is offering right now, you can enjoy one hot stone massage this week (relax before the big game) and one next week (to celebrate our inevitable victory).

Now, we’re going to try really, really hard this week to not have every single Catch of the Day (or thing we talk about in casual conversation) be about this coming Sunday. But seriously, it’s kind of hard. Super Bowl Sunday has taken on a sort of semi-national holiday status. We make plans. We prepare the meal. We dedicate an entire day to this event—even if we know absolutely nothing about football. Add to that the collective (and palpable) uplift that the Ravens’ participation has brought to the city, and this is basically a mandatory celebration for Baltimoreans. The Super Bowl is America’s second ranking holiday in terms of food consumption (Thanksgiving takes first place, but apparently game day beats out Christmas). To us, this means that we need to be planning big time—whether by creating individually-sculpted raven-shaped marzipan treats Martha Stewart-style or ordering a king-size bucket of wings from the place down the street. And so, topping our list of Things To Order For Sunday is Dangerously Delicious Pies’ special Super Bowl Pie. Read More →
Federal Hill has Purple Pride to spare, but this past weekend’s victory over the New England Patriots set off an unprecedented celebration on Charles Street. Although the heavy police presence proved unnecessary, there were certainly scenes that are inappropriate to display on this site (go to YouTube for those). Here is a glimpse into that magic night.

We’re sure you’ve all marked your calendars, but just a friendly reminder: tomorrow is the 204th birthday of Edgar Allan Poe. Not only did he give us a mascot for our professional football team, he also inspired that one Simpsons episode where Lisa’s rival builds a diorama based on “The Tell Tale Heart” and Lisa steals it, only to be haunted by the mechanical ticking of the diorama’s hideous heart. Surely this is what compelled the Poe Toaster to arrive at Poe’s grave in the wee hours of Poe’s birthday, every year for 75 years. The Toaster, a silent, hooded figure, would arrive at the grave, lay three red roses at the grave, pour him/herself a glass of cognac, toast, and leave the rest of the bottle at the grave site. Nothing more. The phenomenon ended a couple of years ago when the Toaster failed to make their usual appearance. Alas. Read More →
