    Wandering Eye: Marylanders are buying more wine and spirits, the disruption of higher ed, and more
    Booze news flash! Over the past decade, Marylanders and Baltimoreans have been drinking much less beer and much more wine and spirits, while cigarette consumption has seen a huge decline: 31 percent statewide. The Free State's revenuers track the sale of these legal vices closely, since they are heavily taxed, and compile the data in annual reports. The figures show that from fiscal year 2005 to 2014, wholesale deliveries of beer in Baltimore City declined by a whopping 19.5 percent, far more than the large 7-percent drop statewide. Booze deliveries, meanwhile, are up 13.3 percent in Mobtown, less than the 21.6 percent rise all across Maryland. Baltimore's real distinction is wine: up 37.4 percent, compared to 28 percent statewide. More wine and spirits, less cigs and wheat sodas! Hooray! Wait a minute. What's wrong with you people? Beer is delicious and refreshing. (Van Smith)

    The Oyster Counters: On the water with the scientists on Maryland's 75th annual Chesapeake Bay oyster survey
    It’s dark outside, and the pre-dawn Monday morning traffic in Baltimore’s Harbor Tunnel is light. I just made a mad dash out of bed, into my truck, and to the ATM and gas station, thinking I’d overslept to make a timely 7 a.m. arrival...

    The Art Scene

    The Art Scene
    Baltimore’s art scene is defined by collaboration. Wherever you turn, artists seem to be working together concocting some mad scheme, creating a new work, or founding a new gallery or performance space. And yet, all this collaboration never equals...
