We here at Catch of the Day are so ahead of the curve that we’re not talking or thinking about our weekend plans today. Sure, TGIF and everything, but we’re already looking forward to (and making our reservations for) next Wednesday. Some might call this the opposite of being present in the moment, but we call it being prepared. And isn’t that something that the Boy Scouts (pretty good role models, we’d say) are always advocating? Plus, we’ve got good cause to look forward: Wednesday, May 1st will be Whiskey Wednesday at Johnny’s. Read More →

I love grocery shopping. Absolutely love it. I’m proud to say that I think part of my grocery shopping success — what makes it feel more like a pleasant outing than a chore — is that I don’t subject myself to the giant chains. It’s not hard, since Baltimore is a town with a spectrum of options when it comes to stocking the kitchen, and among the crowd one store stands out: Eddie’s of Roland Park. How, exactly? Well, for generations it has offered the finest meats and produce, fancy foods and one-of-a-kind customer service that families in North Baltimore have come to rely on and cherish.
This Saturday, the Baltimore culinary landmark celebrates 20 years (and three generations) at the Charles Street store with a “Shop Local” anniversary event. The event is meant as a way to say “thank you” to customers old and new, while offering tastings from some of Maryland’s finest food purveyors. This doesn’t just mean tasty samples (though of course, there’ll be plenty). It also means a meet-and-greet with local vendors. As Nancy Cohen, President of Eddie’s (and the daughter of its founder, Victor Cohen) tells us, “We have always prided ourselves on our relationships with local vendors. We like to say that we promoted local products before it was fashionable to do so.” And in terms of selecting local products for its shelves, Eddie’s certainly knows how to pick ‘em. The store has been a dedicated carrier of Zeke’s Coffee (the treasured local roaster currently has Orioles themed coffees available in the stores) as well as of Albert Kirchmayr—a noted local purveyor of top-quality, hand-crafted chocolates. They also carry Vanns Spices—locally bottled herbs, spices and seasoning blends favored by chefs and home cooks across the country. “What makes these vendors special,” says Cohen, “is the care they take in making their products. They use the best ingredients in products that make Baltimore proud. We know our customers like to support local businesses and small businesses, as do we. These vendors are not big corporations, they are small, closely held businesses, just like Eddie’s of Roland Park.” Read More →

Mr. Streett, who taught at MICA for 53 years, lived until recently on one side of the church, using the other for his studio. A stone marker, still there, records that the church was built in 1894 as the Evergreen Methodist Protestant Church (a splinter sect later reunited with the United Methodist Church). Read More →

Continuing the focus on fall restaurant news has come naturally this week. I mean, who isn’t feeling autumnal? The brisk weather and the football on the tube (Faith Hill’s sparkly minidress was a vast improvement over last year’s bizarre capri/blazer combo, I’m sure the men are with me on this one) has us all in the mood. So let’s get our cozy on and figure out where we are going for our butternut squash bisque this season. It’s game time folks! Read More →
Mae West famously said, “When I’m good, I’m very, very good, but when I’m bad I’m better.” That attitude (along with her looks and Hollywood star status) surely helped keep her in the good graces of hostesses, dates, and others who likely cleaned up behind her after a particularly good time. Many of us, however, could use a little something extra when begging pardon for, shall we say, less than perfect behavior. What to do? Flowers? A homemade pie? A replacement lampshade? Read More →
