Another Unicorn Dead: Cross Bar License Invalidated

Another Unicorn Dead: Cross Bar License Invalidated

  In setting what could only be described as a dangerous precedent today, Octogenarian Head of the Liquor Board Thomas Ward and Commish Dana Moore voted 2-1 to invalidate the 10,000 year old (but still in use yet) Cross Bar der Biergarten’s (12-18 Cross St, Federal Hill (theoretically)) liquor license, a bar that hasn’t even finished construction. If you’re new to the whole issue, which has been going on for well over a year and change, … Read entire article »

One Summer Day After Practice

One Summer Day After Practice

My car was thick with laughter, exhaustion, and the smell of teenage boy. We’d just finished our summer workout.

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 »
