Grand Cru

527 E. Belvedere Ave., (410) 464-1944,

You're sick of being the creeper or cougar in the bars you used to hang out in your 20s, keeps sending you losers, and you're starting to think that 50 is the new 80. Despair not, AARP members. Seek refuge at Grand Cru, a wine bar that's a port in the storm catering to well-preserved baby boomers with most of their hair and teeth. Sit at the bar and you'll immediately feel welcomed. People smile at you here, and not in a sleazy way. On a recent night, a group of professors from Morgan State shared bottles of wine next to two women in their 60s. The restrooms don't have Viagra dispensers, but if you get lucky, it's a fair bet you could score some just by asking around.
