OwlBar2-0Want to buy a piece of the Owl Bar? Figure out what you’re willing to bid.

The Owl Bar, located inside the Roosevelt Hotel, is holding an auction of historic items on May 31. The prime items up for bid will be six wooden banquettes that sat around the bar’s perimeter, dating to 1903.

“They have been replaced (we tried to incorporate into the new look, but to avail) with new ones, covered in faux zebra skins and rich oxblood mohair,” an announcement states.

An infamous antique stool will also be auctioned off.

Glenn Freeman, in conjunction with Jonathan Melnick, Auctioneer, will be running the bidding. Proceeds of the auction are set to benefit BARCS, and the organization is even bringing a few furry friends.

Seven Poor

catch of the day fish (2)Don’t get us wrong– we love a good production of The Nutcracker or A Christmas Carol. They’re holiday season staples, of course. But sometimes it’s nice to mix it up– lest we only watch Miracle on 34th Street and It’s a Wonderful Life over and over and over again, right? Well, leave it the the Baltimore Theatre Project to push the envelope ever so gently with what could well become a new, local holiday staple: it’s Charlie Bethel’s one-man rendition of Charles Dickens’ The Seven Poor Travellers.
