The esteemed listicle compilers over at Thrillist endeavored to name the most iconic bar in every state (and DC). They sought to narrow it down by using three criteria: (1) open since 1990 (but really the older the better), (2) famous and (3) still loved. In the end, Maryland’s winner was Fells Point’s The Horse You Came In on Saloon. Read More →

Few spots in Baltimore are as effortlessly romantic as Fells Point. And few restaurants as well-regarded as Waterfront Kitchen, where chef Jerry Pellegrino prepares exquisite “seed-to-plate” fare that’s seasonally focused and as locally sourced as possible.

It was a mere four months ago that the Huffington Post decided Baltimore was a great place to visit. I guess they felt as though people didn’t get the message, because they’re at it again, with a list of “10 reasons why Baltimore should be your next weekend getaway.”
I am so glad Baltimore magazine brought this list of “The 10 Most Hipster Campuses 2014″ to my attention.

Remember, people, hipsters are not just about the flannel and Pabst! They’re also way, way about the jeans! (It’d have to be about more than flannel and PBR, or else most of my Northern New York redneck relatives — whom I adore — would qualify.) Read More →
Confession time. We are avid watchers of all those competitive cooking shows. Chopped, Hell’s Kitchen, Cupcake Wars, you name it.
