Fells Point Cardboard Tube Fighting Tournament

Cardboard

catch of the day fish (2)So, we thought we should let you know about this weekend’s Cardboard Tube Fighting Tournament. Just your regular old Sunday afternoon activity, right? Sure, you probably get your cardboard tube battle in regularly, but it’s not everyday there’s a full-on tournament. Oh, and just in case your usual cardboard tube is in the shop, they’ll be happy to provide you one on site. So there’s really no excuse not to come and battle your heart out. To be honest, we’re not exactly sure how one decides who wins in a cardboard tube battle. First one to draw blood from a paper cut? Hard to say. But whether you want to throw down or just ogle, the rest of the city’s cardboard enthusiasts will surely be happy to see you at the square on Sunday. Read More →

Woody Harrelson

Remember when we told you a few months ago that Woody Harrelson is now a co-owner of the Inn at the Black Olive?  At the time, we fantasized about hanging out with the guy, and now’s our — and your — chance! He and his co-owner are having a dinner on July 27  to benefit Great Kids’ Farm. See the details, below! – The Eds.

From Citybizlist – At The Inn at the Black Olive, corporate social responsibility comes in a “benefit corporation model” — where putting people before profits feels good, is earth friendly — and tastes great. On July 27 at 6:00pm, the eco-friendly, all-suite, Inner-Harbor view property with ultra-organic menus will be the site of a charity event dinner to benefit Great Kids Farm. It’s a chance to enjoy inventive and healthful fresh food and wine, and support entrepreneurship with a social mission. Read More →

India Rasoi Looking for New Life in Upper Fells Point

India Rasoi

India Rasoi at its old location

The films that once screened at the Apex Theatre in Upper Fells Point were as spicy as they come, er, so I’m told. And that’s as much conceptual continuity as I can find between the porn theater that shut down in December and India Rasoi, which seeks to open in that space.

The Indian restaurant closed its Little Italy location after 13 years of operation last year. Owners Dilawar and Jasvinder Khatkar have been looking for a way to reopen ever since. 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.

Vintage at Bottle of Bread

catch of the day fish (2)Bottle of Bread has been providing Baltimore with super cute, exquisitely inspired clothing, furnishings, and art for over a while now. But only recently did the doors to the actual, brick-and-mortar Bottle of Bread shop open. You can now pop into the lovely little boutique in Fells Point for all things charming, dainty, a little rough-around-the-edges, and yet totally dreamy. We love the model at Bottle of Bread that combines well-worn vintage classics with unique pieces made by local designers and artisans. Whether you’re looking to dress up your living room or yourself, Bottle of Bread has the kind of exceptional pieces of chic we just love. Read More →

Watching the FIFA World Cup at Slainte

FIFA at Slainte

catch of the day fish (2)Even if you’re not usually a soccer fan, you’d have to be living under a rock to not hear the now constant buzz about the FIFA World Cup. It lasts through mid-July for a month of brutal and riveting games that pit country against country in the sport that America loves to ignore, but that every other nation on Earth just plain loves. So, if you feel like stepping outside of our national comfort zone just a wee bit to get in on the action and see what all the world-wide hype is about, you may just need the right bar in which to eat, drink, watch, and yell at the screen. The consensus: Slainte Irish pub is the best place in the state where you can do exactly that. Read More →

Salt’s New Locust Point Bar to Focus on Small Plates

0 Written by: | Monday, Jun 16, 2014 9:15am

The House in Locust Point

It was nine months ago that we learned the folks behind Salt of Butchers Hill had bought 1157 Haubert Street in Locust Point. (The address had previously hosted The House and Down the Hatch.) At the time, we were told the new eatery would be “some sort of bar that sells food.”

That certainly didn’t put too fine a point on it. So kudos to the City Paper for teasing out a little more information.

Salt chef/owner Jason Ambrose recently told CP that the Locust Point would boast a menu of mostly small plates. He also promised it would be cheaper than Salt and more bar than restaurant. Read More →

porch-pounders-ad-JUNE Ever heard of a Porch Pounder? It’s the label wine industry people give to wines that go down easily, won’t break the bank and always deliver. It’s a crowd pleaser. Open one at the end of a long week, and you’re sure to start off the weekend in a good place. We’ve partnered with Bin 604 to bring to you the Porch Pounder of the Month and a few other wine suggestions. The staff at Bin 604 regularly tastes over one-hundred wines every week, so you can count on the selections to be ones you’ll want to pound on the porch…or anywhere at all!

Baltimore Bar Named One of the Best in America — And It’s Not the One You Think

Rye_Back_Table-1024x767

Whenever I read a headline about some national magazine putting one of our local bars on its “best in America” list, I always assume they’re talking about Brewer’s Art. After all, the brewery/bar was named the best bar in America (!) by Esquire not so long ago. But this year, Esquire decided to honor a different Baltimore bar for once.

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

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

screen568x568

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.
