Presenting: The Cosby / Tacky Sweater Bar Crawl 2014

On November 22nd, the sweatered masses will assemble yet again to rove the length of Boston Street and sweater it up.

Why Did I Do This to Myself: Burger King’s Xtra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

Why Did I Do This to Myself: Burger King’s Xtra Long BBQ Cheeseburger

It can be said that in life, there are times, deep dark times – in which you’re completely out of ideas when it comes to what to eat for lunch. For better or worse, even though you want a salad because it’s the responsible thing to do or you just enjoy the texture of baby corn, sometimes you’re ten feet away from the entrance to the Eastern Avenue / Chester St. Burger King, and you’re … Read entire article »

Former Shucker’s gonna be a mexican joint

Former Shucker’s gonna be a mexican joint

A little while ago we TOTALLY BROKE THE STORY that Fells Point’s Shuckers was being shuttered with haste due to a litany of issues but an expiring lease was cited as the primary reason according to management. Some time later, BBJ and Baltimore Magazine brought us word that the brains behind the wildly successful Mad River and Bond Street Social (respectively) were teaming up to perform a full rehab on the property with live entertainment, … Read entire article »

Shuckers slapped with eviction notice, massive back rent owed

Roughly 90 days after our last rumblings from one Shuckers of Fells Point (1629 Thames St) in which they were fined for operating without a business license – later revealed to be an issue of back taxes owed in excess of $100,000 – comes a tip today that they’ve been given an eviction notice from their primo waterfront spot at Brown’s Warf. Owing back rent to the tune of roughly $57,000, yeah, that’ll usually get … Read entire article »

Nachoquest: Willow

Nachoquest: Willow

Willow has been one of those establishments that has me a bit confused. With night and day reviews from the major local media outlets; beginning with the Sun’s favorable bar review and subsequent positive food review on one end, to CP’s rather underwhelmed take on the affair, it’s hard to put a finger on whether Willow is destined to sink or swim. One of their (and by “they” I mean Rye/Stuggy’s/Willow inc.) best mixologists, … 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 »

Can something OTHER than a hotel be done with the Broadway Rec Pier please?

Can something OTHER than a hotel be done with the Broadway Rec Pier please?

  Since Fells Point – and really it would seem every square inch of waterfront property in Baltimore City – is undergoing yet another phase of redevelopment what with Harbor East, Harbor Point, Harbor Harbor, Inner Harbor 2 and Under Harbor all hottening up the scene, we come to the tried and true tradition of trying yet again to revive the question as to what to do with the crumbling Broadway Rec Pier. With a charming … Read entire article »

This whole Broadway Market reconstruction stuff can’t finish soon enough

If you’ve been down and around the Broadway Market area in say, the past oh TWO YEARS you’ll notice that a lot of work has been in the, uh, works to rebuild/revamp both lengths of the market itself (the southern stretch of which was completed last September) as well as the immediate surroundings insofaras the dilapidated storefronts, the old Crabby Dicks building (HAHAHAHAHAH get it? CRABBY DICKS! GENITALS!) and a few other places – this … Read entire article »
