In This Week's City Paper: Beer, Lime-A-Ritas, and more beer

Baltimore Beer Week starts on Friday, bringing with it beer drinking, oompah bands, food, and much more, including our annual Beer Issue. But it is not strictly about beer, with appreciations for Lime-A-Ritas and Lil' Kim (whose album "Hard Core" inspired this week's cover), and a look at an effort made by a handful of Mount Vernon residents to close down The Drinkery, a gay bar. There's plenty of beer too. Here's a rundown:
