Last night, I was lucky enough to attend a soft opening for friends and family at Birroteca’s new Harford County outpost. Let’s just say, this place is going to do very well in the land of Outback Steakhouse and Bertucci’s. It’s nice for folks up in Bel Air and Fallston to have a locally run option with approachable, delicious food. Read More →

I’m not the biggest fan of the word foodie. I don’t hate it, I just don’t use it. I’m pretty sure I am what people would call a foodie (yep, I write about food and keep chickens), but I really just think of myself to be someone who really loves good food and beverages…enjoying it, preparing, sharing it.

The Fells Point bar Bad Decisions has the Baltimore region’s first bitcoin ATM. Before their Coin Outlet-brand ATM was installed Monday night, Baltimoreans would have had to travel to New York, North Carolina, or Ohio to find a machine that dispenses the anonymous and wildly fluctuating digital currency.

Oysters are something most people love or are completely grossed out by. I’m the former. For sure. Love ‘em.
My connection to local oysters is through two people, really. First is my friend George Hastings, U.S. National Shucking Champion. And he’s from Baltimore – how great is that? I first met George at First Friday at the Hon Bar in Hampden on one of the very first oyster nights there. Back in the day, the oysters were free and you just tipped the shucker, George. Then it got a little crazy (people seemed to be more excited that they were free vs delicious) and they went to $2.00/plate. George was always so nice to me. Friendly, knowledgeable, extremely skilled. Read More →
Come February, Canton will get a new Mexican dining option, as Bel Air’s La Tolteca will be opening a location at the former Horse With No Name space at 2324 Boston Street.
(By the way, I never went to Horse With No Name, but let me tell you, they had the best mission statement in the business, dedicated to “the creation of Meta-Shared Experiences” that “have perceived value.” You could seriously read the whole website and have no idea it was a bar.) Read More →
