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

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

Baltimore’s numero uno Sunday Farmer’s Market debuts in less than 48 hours (oddly timed with our Lord and Savior’s Resurrection, but whatever) and 2015 is shaking up to be VERY SPEND HAPPY for you, the interested consumer. A slew of new vendors have been added and the market boundaries have exploded beyond the confines of the overpass (be sure to visit beef jerky impresarios Mobtown Meatsnacks by the ATM!). A whopping FIFTY SEVEN craft vendors … Read entire article »

Nachoquest: Mick O’Shea’s

Nachoquest: Mick O’Shea’s

  Mick O’Shea’s is arguably (if not the) the best bar in upper downtown Baltimore, but hey, a bar’s quality often times isn’t exactly indicative of its menu or the subsequent quality. Even moreso with nachos. “You know, nachos, they’re an appetizer, just kinda a pile of stuff on a plate right?” WRONG.   Give me a break, bars and restaurants. A truly inspired pile of nachos can be an awesome experience for not just one people, but often … Read entire article »

Get to the National Pinball Museum while the gettin’s good

Get to the National Pinball Museum while the gettin’s good

Unfortunate news came down the pipeline this past week that the beloved-by-most National Pinball Museum (608 Water St, Downtown), which has had a right difficult time finding a permanent home, is closing its doors once again on March 3rd. The time tested disagreements with landlords over lease terms has choked out the museum’s ability to go forward and so their ubernostalgic collection of flippery goodness will be forced to relocate a third time in two … Read entire article »

Nachoquest: Peter’s Pour House

Nachoquest: Peter’s Pour House

Let it be known that Peter’s Pour House (111 Mercer St., Downtown) is one of my favorite spots in downtown Baltimore. Back “in the day” it was the spot for happy hour after work, mingling with pro-fessionals streaming out of the then Legg Mason building and stumbling around Water Street with some outdoor table gaming (FOR CHARITY OK) and $5 giant beers – a special that has stood the test of time and made Peter’s … Read entire article »

The Amazing, Disappearing, Kettle Hill Restaurant

The Amazing, Disappearing, Kettle Hill Restaurant

Filed under “So This Happened,” Power Plant Live’s seemingly flagship “maturation effort” restaurant Kettle Hill closed — good god — over two months ago already, in a very, very quiet manner when the doors simply closed, locked, this post from Baltimore Diner c/o G-Lick dropped and no one ever said another word on the matter. Open for a mere eight months I actually blew through on a Wednesday afternoon roughly halfway into its lifespan during … Read entire article »

Home Slyce opening 2nd location Downtown

Home Slyce opening 2nd location Downtown

Being just shy of five months since opening, the Cazbar group is taking the seemingly successful formula utilized by South Baltimore’s Home Slyce (1741 Light St)- reasonably priced pizzas and other foodstuffs with a casual atmosphere – and bringing it to the space at 336 N Charles Street known as Goodfella’s Bar and Grill, a mere block away from Cazbar and sandwiching local favorite Mick O’ Shea’s. The 2nd location is set to open in … Read entire article »

Holy Shit That’s Awesome: Poison and Def Leppard at Merriweather

Holy Shit That’s Awesome: Poison and Def Leppard at Merriweather

So, I’ve been having a pretty shitty week. I had 5 days off around the 4th of July, and was sick (still am) with Bronchitis the entire time. Also, my cat died on Tuesday. I’ve been all kinds of stressed out. Then, yesterday my good friend AnnaVonShans sent me a text asking what I was doing that night. I had no plans so she informed me that we were going to see Poison and Def … Read entire article »

Alewife adds some (more) high end items to dinner menu

Alewife adds some (more) high end items to dinner menu

A few nights ago I was traipsing about around downtown when I happened to meet a guy named Matt Wertman, who has been doing a bit of work over at Alewife (21 North Eutaw St., Downtown) during the lunch shift. He’s assisting Head Chef Chad Wells with cooking and what not, just generally being a good part timer – Matt has had his fair share of Cheffing himself, helping to build out a few menu … Read entire article »

Two moustache related charity events this weekend

Two moustache related charity events this weekend

It’s December 1st, and the annual movement to change the face of men’s health – Movember – is pretty much over. The Baltimore area truly rocked the ‘stache this year, nabbed itself a feature in the Baltimore Sun, TV interviews, and raised over $14,000 (and counting) for a great cause. But the month is over, and it is time to bid adieu to said ‘staches. And so, this Friday at Field House (2400 Boston St., … Read entire article »
