I had Happy Hour at The Capital Grille

I had Happy Hour at The Capital Grille

August 18th, I find myself at an Inner Harbor establishment which I’ve heard has a pretty decent happy hour – a few friends from downtown places of professionalism want to go and I know at least one person that works there, so I say to myself hey, it’s the 80s and beat feet through the Harborplace promenade as a completely bonkers rain storm begins to brew in an effort to a) not get drenched and … Read entire article »

Put That Wherever

Put That Wherever

Thursday, 5:47pm: The Inner Harbor Barnes and Noble In Baltimore, “just putting that right there” is not simply limited to streets and trash. No, sir. There are times when the phrase “put that wherever” can make a truly grand statement. I was purusing the international map section in B&N, and not seeing anything that would help for (surprise) Nicaragua I began to turn away. Then, there it was, blended in with maps of Mexico and Mexico … Read entire article »

Say Hello to the Raw Barge

Say Hello to the Raw Barge

Well here’s a pleasant sight from sometimes contributor Darth Raymunnn, who was wandering around aimlessly at Harborview the other day: the Tiki Barge’s (500 Harborview Dr., Inner Harbor) new double decker Raw Barge, which as of last winter was in the works and supposedly denied/delayed by the Harborview community, but folks began witnessing its construction over in Canton some time ago and silently in the night it arrived across the pond at the marina like … Read entire article »

Globe Brewing building to be destroyed, Little Havana a burgeoning power player

Globe Brewing building to be destroyed, Little Havana a burgeoning power player

A few days ago it was announced by various outlets that the long since empty Globe Brewing building adjacent to Little Havana (1325 Key Hwy, Inner Harbor) is slated for demolition, a property which had been purchased some time ago by none other than Tim Whistead, the owner of Little Havana. It’s been an interesting four years for the restaurant to be sure, when in March of 2009 we found ourselves staring at the possibility of … 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 »

GET RAW AT THE RAW BARGE! (New addition to Tiki Barge)

GET RAW AT THE RAW BARGE! (New addition to Tiki Barge)

Word has it that the once embattled and now seemingly acceptable Tiki Barge (500 Harborview Dr., Inner Harbor) is applying to expand its operations, in order to include a lil’ ol’ thing they like to call the “Raw Barge.” Billed as a seafood restaurant, this Raw Barge has one of the most comedy-ripe names I’ve heard in quite a while, harkening back to the days of Green Cilantro and NADDs (or possibly Shirley’s Honey Hole). The … Read entire article »

A swimmable, fishable harbor: Or, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA – Part 2

A swimmable, fishable harbor: Or, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA – Part 2

And so it was after Earth Day 2010 that the Waterfront Partnership unveiled its, shall we say, ambitious goal to make Baltimore’s Inner Harbor two of two seemingly impossible things: Swimmable, and Fishable. Not only swimmable and fishable, but swimmable and fishable in ten years. The initially touted details involved spreading awareness of the perils of litter, construction or large marsh-barges and  other measures that at that time I deemed “a bit cutesy” when faced … Read entire article »

Review: Phillip’s Seafood

Review: Phillip’s Seafood

Over the holiday weekend, fellow blogger/advicer SpaceManAndy and I decided to try out the new Philips Seafood location in the Inner Harbor area, who famously moved into the old vacant ESPN Zone space and reopened in the past few weeks. What follows are our observations on the “new” Philips. Enjoy! Evan: So like, Philips. I was a little surprised at the decor. I mean, I didn’t expect it to be all Rusty Scupper but the inflatable clowns … Read entire article »

Local DJ wears awesome shirt with baseball legend

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 »
