The 3rd Annual Cosby Sweater Bar Crawl!

The 3rd Annual Cosby Sweater Bar Crawl!

It is often said that the December holidays are “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” but clearly those people have never enjoyed the splendor of one of Baltimore’s newest and most unique traditions: The Cosby Sweater Bar Crawl. Now in its third year, this celebration of loud sweaterage and pudding and Jello products has consistently been the most enjoyable way to spend a Saturday in the Fall in the history of the world.

Say Hello To Smaltimore

Say Hello To Smaltimore

The long awaited, long anticipated, looooong time in the works new restaurant in Canton by one No Idea / former Don’t Know bartreneur Jason Zink, now officially called Smaltimore (Where everybody knows everyone and everything about them!, 2522 Fait Ave, Canton), has been opening its doors to the public in recent weeks and is slated for a grand opening on August 15th. The former Lager’s space had a rather traumatic conclusion two summers ago … Read entire article »

Nachoquest: Bartenders

Nachoquest: Bartenders

Everybody knows Canton’s Bartenders (2218 Boston St.) has hellagood pizzas, a huge selection of Bourbon and friendly, zany staff – but they also have nachos. How’s that for an intro? Bartenders’ appetizer menu nachos, consisting of tortilla chips topped with black beans, cheddar, mozzarella, peppers, jalapenos, onions, salsa and sour cream ($7, with chicken pictured for +$2) come out crispy baked and completely overflowing with gigantic chunks of toppings. Upon first inspection from the photo, … Read entire article »

MoonShine Tavern: a pre-analysis

MoonShine Tavern: a pre-analysis

Well it was a long, long ride for the ownership at Boston Street’s Gin Mill (2300 Boston St., Canton) but the doors finally closed after what seems like an eternity but was in fact 16 years, after some rough patches over the past ten or so due to the “Boston Street Curse,” a common semi-misconception that for whatever reason — parking, principally — every bar along the stretch of Boston between Aliceanna and Montford is … Read entire article »

Nachoquest: Shiso Tavern

Nachoquest: Shiso Tavern

When last we were talking about Shiso Tavern, it was all about the ramen. As it turns out, and something I up until now forgot about, Shiso’s menu contains what they refer to as “Sushi Nachos” ($11) on it, and if it weren’t my solemnly sworn duty to report any and all things Nacho in this city of ours I probably wouldn’t have purchased them. BUT IT IS.   At any rate, these “Nachos” feature three individually topped … Read entire article »

I need some goddamned Ramen right now.

I need some goddamned Ramen right now.

Baltimore, what is wrong with you? Do you hate Ramen or something? I mean come on! It’s not that hard to make (well, hard to make¬†well but whatever)! Alkaline noodles, a kickass broth and some stuff in it, that’s pretty much it. Behind Pho as the “least repesented cusine in Baltimore City,” there’s barely one hand’s worth of establishments that serve any kind of Ramen whatsoever, Tonkotsu or otherwise (more on that after this whinefest). … Read entire article »

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 »

1542 Gastropub to become Langermann’s on Light

1542 Gastropub to become Langermann’s on Light

As quickly as you can say “Rebranding,” the long chain of identities continues for the property known as 1542 Light Street; a rich tapestry of names, Lobster Mac n’ Cheeses and dollar signless menus that has brought us to the next chapter in the pantheon of names: Langermann’s on Light. Langermann’s, over there in the Can Company area of Canton is certainly a notable dining spot with award-winning shrimp and grits and a brunch side buffet, … Read entire article »

A reader’s plea: Where’s the *best* delivery coming from?

A reader’s plea: Where’s the *best* delivery coming from?

A short while ago, I received an email from a reader who expressed and all-caps interest in finding out the following: CAN U PLEASE WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT WHO HAS THE BEST FOOD DELIVERY. I’VE TRIED EVERYBODY WITH NO SUCCESS. Well, excited reader, this is kind of a tricky question, isn’t it? I mean, delivery quality can boil down to prompt delivery, the quality of the food, the range of delivery, several layers and factors to consider here, … Read entire article »

Nachoquest: Annabel Lee Tavern (Part 1?)

Nachoquest: Annabel Lee Tavern (Part 1?)

Nestled on the very, very northeastern edge of Canton (Realtors breath a sigh of relief) Annabel Lee Tavern (601 S Clinton St.) has always been a pretty good and vibrant place to hang out, one of those good old fashioned bar restaurants that isn’t trying to be “upscale casual” or “your source for craft beer” or “any of that crap,” and since the inception of Nachoquest folks have been laying it on pretty thick that … Read entire article »
