Claudia was a very popular server and beloved team member. We are incredibly sad and will miss her greatly.” Read more here.

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.”

MICA Named 10th ‘Most Hipster’ Campus in US

MICA, 10th most hipster campus in US

I am so glad Baltimore magazine brought this list of “The 10 Most Hipster Campuses 2014″ to my attention. I may have otherwise never had a chance to read these opening sentences: “Hipsters appreciate more than rocking flannel and chugging Pabst Blue Ribbon. They also appreciate skinny jeans, bands you never heard of and, above all, a place of higher learning where they’re able to find like-minded individuals.”

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 →

Wow! Dinosaur Bar-B-Que to Come to Fells Point!

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.

Meet Baltimore’s First Female Bricklayer

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 →
