A couple of months ago, I received the single least anticipated or welcome letter in the mail. You know the one. The one no one wants but everyone gets. The dreaded jury summons.

Home Maid | Baltimore
It’s not too often that I go to a restaurant, and feel compelled to sit down as soon as absolutely possible, go through my photos and get something written RIGHT NOW. It takes a special place to make me so amped that I can’t wait any longer, that I need to shout it from my...

The Local Fry | Specialty Fries Done Right
If you told me there’s a restaurant out there that specialized in all things french fries, then you’d be hard pressed to keep me away. I’m an avid french fry lover, and I’d even go so far as to consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur. So when I DID find that there was ACTUALLY a...

Das Bier Haus Baltimore
So, my computer decided that charging the battery is for chumps, and just quit doing that basic function for me. Lame. I was in the middle of doing something SUPER IMPORTANT, obviously, when my battery went to 4% and the charger said, “Nah. We can no longer work together. It’s not you. It’s me.” So...
