Baltimore, this is the best restaurant news I’ve heard in a long while. The biker- and blues-oriented barbecue chain Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is finally venturing south of New Jersey. And Fells Point is going to be its first location!

When you think of great American barbecue, you probably don’t think of Upstate New York, but you should! The original Dinosaur location in Syracuse was crowned America’s best barbecue by Good Morning America in 2009. And as crazy as that may sound, it is not undeserved. In fact, it was a long time coming. I can tell you from experience that their ribs, pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, salmon fritters, and fried green tomatoes are all show stoppers.

According to the Baltimore Business Journal, the 8,295 square-foot space at 1401 Fleet Street will seat 251 (including 19 at the bar). The restaurateurs will meet with the liquor board on Sept. 4.

Bricklaying is a predominantly male profession; that was even more true 40 years ago, when Baltimorean Barbara Moore got her start. “It was kind of rough at first ’cause, you know, a lot of the older guys didn’t think I should be there and I was taking a job from a man,” Moore said in an NPR StoryCorps interview with her daughter, Olivia Fite. “But I believed that I could do that job.”

Sellers loved this home!  Here are a few of their favorite things:

Walk to EVERYTHING. Water, Harbor East, Canton, Patterson Park, Hopkins, and of course Fells Point Square. Don’t forget about the FESTIVALS and concerts and open air movies all summer long.  If you’re a sports fan, you know when the Os win because you can hear the fireworks. Speaking of fireworks: watching July 4, New Years, and Flag Day fireworks from the roof deck.  The fun doesn’t stop when the weather gets cold- Parade of Boats, Santa’s tugboat arrival, Olde Tyme Christmas keeps things toasty  in the winter.  If you love entertaining, parties, parties, parties all year long in the big backyard!

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 →

Black Olive Co-Owner Woody Harrelson to Host Charity Dinner at His Newly Purchased Inn

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 →
