I had lunch at My Thai

I had lunch at My Thai

I fucking love Thai food. At one point on our podca– sorry, “Internet Radio Show,” I explained to guest and esteemed member of the CTB Fanzone Xtreme Lowell Melser that if I had to pick one cuisine for the rest of my life, it would probably be Thai. Give me that Larb Gai, gimme that Pad Thai, gimme that Prik Sod. ALL OF IT. Baltimore establishments like Thai Arroy in Federal Hill, the cleverly named Thai … Read entire article »

I had Happy Hour at The Capital Grille

I had Happy Hour at The Capital Grille

August 18th, I find myself at an Inner Harbor establishment which I’ve heard has a pretty decent happy hour – a few friends from downtown places of professionalism want to go and I know at least one person that works there, so I say to myself hey, it’s the 80s and beat feet through the Harborplace promenade as a completely bonkers rain storm begins to brew in an effort to a) not get drenched and … Read entire article »

How the hell have I never heard of Pat the Bugler?

How the hell have I never heard of Pat the Bugler?

We’ve all hear about the Roar From 34 certainly, but I’ve lived on Earth for slightly less than 37 years and I’ve never heard of the man known as Pat the Bugler from the old Memorial Stadium days. This spot produced by Evening Magazine in ’82 tells the tale of a military bugler turned superfan and we even get a cameo by Wild Bill himself right around the end (you can also watch Evening Magazine’s … Read entire article »

An Adoption Story

An Adoption Story

This Year’s Baltimore Farmer’s Market is Pretty Huge You Guys

How to take advantage of local natural disasters to make your tweets go viral

How to take advantage of local natural disasters to make your tweets go viral

Twitter is basically like a stream of consciousness thing that I use strictly for my own entertainment, so I never really expect people to find what I babble about online very interesting. But every now and then: I do something, a bunch of other people think it is worth repeating, and my phone makes noises all day. That is what we in the internet biz call “going viral.” Yesterday was one of those times. That morning I woke up, … Read entire article »

RIP: Langermann’s on Light is Closed

RIP: Langermann’s on Light is Closed

Another one bites the dust Langermann’s on Light Street closed its doors this past Friday. This comes as no surprise to most people. If you were a frequenter of the restaurant, it was not a challenge to stroll in at 7PM on a Friday night and find yourself with prime pickings for any table in the restaurant. I’m actually a little disappointed to hear the news, because the scallops, among other menu items, were so … Read entire article »
