  • The holiday onslaught on the Wine Source's shelves has cleared them of any elf- or Santa-related beers

    The holiday onslaught on the Wine Source's shelves has cleared them of any elf- or Santa-related beers, but there are still some winter options to grab up before breweries start shipping out their spring seasonals, according to Wine Source beer manager...
  • Enjoy the best part of the holiday: leftovers!

    Between you, me, and my colleagues here at Baltimore's Hungriest Alternative Weekly's Eats & Drinks section, we could probably write the November food content for Major Media in our tryptophan-induced sleep. What'll it be: brined, deep-fried, or oven-...
  • Annex Theater's new play goes to the origins of Greek drama

    Two Suns over Thebes Translated and adapted from Euripides' Bacchae by Alex Hacker Through Nov. 10 at Annex Theater Greek tragedy, as far as we can tell, originated out of the dithyramb, a choral song to the god of tragedy and wine, Dionysus. And so...
  • Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's outdoor setting breathes new life into old vampire

  • Drinking Disasters

    Most of us have lived through drinking disasters. Sometimes it's the drinks themselves that survive catastrophe. The Titanic was infamously launched in 1912 with an inadequate supply of lifeboats-and without a traditional christening of Champagne...
  • Labor Day ushers in the best beach time of the year

    Battling the end-of-summer blues? Here's my prescription: Head downy ocean, where Labor Day ushers in the best beach time of the year. Spend a September weekend (or three) enjoying the mellower crowds, the slanting sunlight, the summer-warmed surf, and...
  • Bagby Restaurant Group's flagship delivers the high-end goods

    For some, pricey Harbor East hotspot Fleet Street Kitchen (1012 Fleet St., [410] 244-5830, fleetstreetkitchen.com) may be a go-to spot for a weeknight steak ($29) or a slab of monkfish topped with crispy pork belly ($27), washed down with a hearty $19...
  • "Your brand becomes known by your lowest common denominator. If a bad bottling gets to market, people won't give you a second chance."

    A stiff wind scruffs up the audio, and there's some telltale jumpiness of video shot with a smartphone, but Drew Baker's video blog from December 2009 is oddly captivating. "I'm currently sitting on the roof of my parents' house in Westminster, Maryland,"...
  • The City that Eats, whether someone's cracking crabs on an old copy of City Paper at a bus stop bench, feasting on a first date at one of our fancier farm-to-table affairs, or seeking out the newest food truck, Baltimore loves its grub.

    We think "The City that Eats," might make a better moniker than that old chestnut about the literacy of the city. Whether someone's cracking crabs on an old copy of City Paper at a bus stop bench, feasting on a first date at one of our fancier farm-to-...
