More Tortillas for Baltimore, Hooray!

Fells Point’s Tortilleria Sinaloa is my favorite spot in town to buy tortillas. The small (only 8 seats!) Mexican cafe makes its tortillas fresh every day, and customers can walk away with a stack of warm, paper-wrapped tortillas to take home. Lucky for us, Tortilleria Sinaloa is opening another location in Baltimore–which means more tortillas. Which means more happiness. Read More →

Little Italy’s Open Air Film Fest

Film Fest

catch of the day fish (2)You’ve got to hand it to the folks who invented pizza and pasta—they know what makes a good time and what makes a party. Just as a traditional Italian meal includes course upon course of meticulously crafted food, Little Italy’s summer outdoor film series offers so much more than just the chance to plop down for a flick. In Little Italy, the evening begins with a stroll through the neighborhood and (if you’re smart) a movie night dinner special at one of its amazing restaurants. Many even offer carryout for the occasion. Then there’s live music at 7pm and a film at 9. So we can easily guarantee you’ll be full by the time you head home. Read More →

Baltimore Orioles Take Over Mustang Alley on Day Off

Manny Machado Celebrity BaseBowl

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado is “Miami 305 to the heart,” but the bat-throwing, salsa-peddling All-Star said he’s been looking for a way to give back to the Baltimore community. He settled on hosting the Manny Machado Celebrity BaseBowl on Thursday.

I have not patronized every bowling establishment in the city, but I would be surprised if there were swankier one than Mustang Alley’s Bar Bowling and Bistro in Little Italy, where the BaseBowl took place. Seriously, you have to see this place. Read More →

Condo Cum Gallery, Plus Contents, In Canal Street Malt House

Hot House: 1220 Bank Street #102, Baltimore, MD 21202

Luxury industrial style loft condo, circa 2005, in historic building, circa 1881.  Brick exterior with interior walls of exposed brick and  concrete. 18’ ceilings. 1,599 sq. ft. with 1 bedroom, 1.5 baths, gourmet kitchen, spa master bath. Private rear patio. Parking, w/ direct access to condo from garage: $569,999 * (see NB)

What: The Canal Street Malt house takes up a full block in what’s left of Little Italy, just north of Harbor East. It was actually a brewer’s malt warehouse back in the day, when Central Avenue was called Canal Street because a water channel (now underground) ran straight down the middle. Two new wings were added when the malt house became luxury condominiums back in 2005, but happily, this loft is in the original building and retains some nice details and an industrial feel. It’s an impressive space, with soaring ceilings perfect for large-scale art work, tall south-facing windows, vertical iron beams and exposed piping. The floors command attention too – wide plank Brazilian cherry, cork upstairs, textured marble in the bathrooms.  (The art and much of the furniture, including an amazing clear blue acrylic table designed by Elizabeth Paige Smith, is for sale.) The space’s distinctive look is the result of a collaboration between designer Tracy Reichert and decorative painter/painting contractor Christopher Licata. The interior has open floor plan, with sleek kitchen overlooking the larger living space. Metal staircase rises to the loft master bedroom, which has custom designed built-ins, walk in closets, dressing area and spa bath with separate shower. Downstairs again, the back patio off the main space is private. A gate leads to central courtyard garden.  Condo fees are $302/month, includes maintenance, sewer, snow and trash removal, water.

HWE28 PRIVATE SECURITY PATCH GOLD ON BROWN

As you may have heard, Baltimore is having a pretty crime-y summer. In circumstances like these, it’s hard to fault anyone for wanting a little more protection. But are private security patrols — like those hired or considering being hired by Charles Village, Little Italy, and Highlandtown — a good idea?

EVENT OF THE DAY: CINEMA AL FRESCO

6:00pm – 9:00pm | FREE!

One of Little Italy’s more popular events, the Open Air Film Fest has thrived since 1999. Arrive early to set up a lawn chair (limited folding chairs provided), stroll the neighborhood and eat dinner at one of the neighborhood’s many restaurants before settling in to watch an Italian-related feature film. Movies are projected onto the outside wall of Ciao Bella Restaurant in the Da Mimmo Ristorante parking lot from a rowhome across the street, thanks to the kindness of its owner. Ray Lancelotta, nephew of the previous homeowner, the late “Mr. John” Pente, wholeheartedly supports the Film Fest, as did his uncle. Mr. John had allowed a projector to be set up in his third floor bedroom window since the inception of this event, all for the good of the neighborhood. Mr. John passed away in 2011 at age 100 and had lived in the house all of his life.
TONIGHT’S FILM:  July 12 – To Rome with Love (R, 112 minutes) Romance! Adventure! Hilarity! Italy! Woody Allen leads this all-star cast on a rollicking ride through the streets of one of the world’s greatest cities. Lovers and fiancés, opera singers and architects, the talented and the famous, and the youthful and the wise, are all players within this engaging film as their stories and lives magically crisscross and collide.
