Solid Brunching Going On At Nickel Taphouse

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Mar 25, 2015 2:05pm


I recently attended a fantastic brunch event hosted by Evolution Craft Brewing at Nickel Taphouse in Mt. Washington. We were treated to everything from craft beers and drinks, to brunch and lunch fare and more. I have to say I’ve never been a huge brunch (or Sunday Funday) person, as Sundays have always been my catch up day – how boring, I know. Read More →

Last night, I was lucky enough to be a guest at a special and intimate dinner at Wine Market Bistro in Locust Point. Opened in 2004 by Chris Spann, Wine Market has been putting out beautiful food for a good while now – in the restaurant world, 10 years is quite substantial. And Le Garage is a welcomed addition to the ever-changing Baltimore food scene and has quickly become a neighborhood go-to for me. When Chris invited me, I knew right away that this was one dinner I could not pass up.  Read More →

Sparkling Grapefruit Sangria To Toast The End Of Winter

grapefruit sangria
Yes, it snowed in Baltimore on the first official day of spring. Poo. Everyone’s pretty sick of winter. Even, me…and I love snow. Well, I have to admit it’s mainly because for the last 13 years I worked at a school, so I’d get snow days. Yes, snow days are the best.


I’m ready for spring. Soon, we’ll be seeing strawberries, asparagus, peas and more at local farmers markets. And, soon it’s time for a nice cocktail – outside! This sangria on Serious Eats caught my eye, not only because it’s colorful, but also because you can make it in a big batch (punch = a party even on a boring Tuesday night.) Highly recommend this sangria – and it’s fun to have Lillet Rosé around! Read More →
