Announcing the 2nd annual Cosby Sweater Bar Crawl: The Gathering of the Cosbys

Announcing the 2nd annual Cosby Sweater Bar Crawl: The Gathering of the Cosbys

And so it was roughly a year ago that the announcement was made: The Baltimore area would raise its tackily patterned sweaters high and declare a new holiday of sorts, the Cosby Sweater Bar Crawl. The resulting crawl was a resounding success and a pretty penny was raised for one animal shelter known as BARCS. Well, this year we’re looking to do it again, preferably bigger and better, including every bar along the Boston Street … Read entire article »

Dundalk Heritage Fair 2012 – the majesty continues

And so it was this past weekend, just prior to celebrating our nation’s independence for the 237th or 8th time, I can’t remember, members of the Midnight Sons assembled and travailed our way to Dundalk’s Heritage Park to bear witness to the greatness that only the karaoke beer garden can provide. There’s some video complete with star wipes, and bear in mind most of this footage was taken well before 5pm and these folks were … Read entire article »

Kloby’s Smokehouse is awesome

Kloby’s Smokehouse is awesome

While attending last week’s Beer Week opener, one of the tables handing out lil’ plates of food was Kloby’s Smokehouse (7500 Montpelier Rd., Laurel). Their samples included lil’ cups of pulled pork – East North Carolina style pulled pork (the best kind) – and a coupon for $5 off your order. So with trepidation I got into my 1996 Honda Accord with replacement off-color hood and hole-filled muffler and drove the 20 minutes to Laurel, … Read entire article »

Yeah well guess what, we have something ….mostly similar now in Baltimore, in the form of the Charm City Pedal Mill! The premise is the same: people sit on a very large bar-shaped vehicle with 14+ seats and pedals … Read entire article »

Local DJ wears awesome shirt with baseball legend

Legendary Orioles manager (the) Earl Weaver was in town last week to participate in some sort of sports-related discussion thing at the Sports Legend Museum (naturally), where he more than likely cursed a lot and gave everyone their what-fors, a time which one could only imagine as really really fun – and then I saw this picture posted on the internets: That’s right folks, 98 Rock DJ Don (aka Cap’n Don) wearing one of our “PRESS … Read entire article »

Baltimore needs a Biergarten (Haus)

Baltimore needs a Biergarten (Haus)

Duringst an online chat session with fellow Midnight Son ryan97ou, who was recently in The District of Columbia for a concert review, he sang the praises of one Biergarten Haus (1355 H St NE). Biergarten Haus opened roughly a year ago in DC to much fanfare, what with its authentic German beers (over 20 on tap, natch), authentic German cuisine including Schniztels, Pretzels, other things that end in “zel” or “aten” and an outdoor patio … Read entire article »
