    Wandering Eye: The continuing legal troubles for Sip & Bite, the end of the world draws closer, and more
    The arrest of Sip & Bite Restaurant owner Anthony Vasiliades for buying two kilograms of cocaine for $50,000 from a confidential U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration source in an Alexandria, Virginia, parking lot, as first reported by the Baltimore Brew, has reverberated around Baltimore. The charge will likely complicate Vasiliades' other legal problem: an ongoing lawsuit over his allegedly illegal wage-paying practices at Sip & Bite. Vasiliades' alleged co-conspirator, Minas Politis, also a restaurateur, owns Opa Express, a Greek and Mediterranean carry-out in Balitmore's Northeast Market. The joint celebrated its one-year anniversary in December, and to mark the occasion, it reposted on its Facebook page a photograph of mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in front of its market stall, smiling as she poses holding one of its dishes, with Politis and his wife Sophia looking on proudly behind her. The mayor originally posted the photo on her page in December 2013, to announce the Northeast Market's grand re-opening. This being Baltimore, you never know who's going to end up accused of kilo-quantity drug conspiracies. (Van Smith)
