NickelTapHouse What: The Nickel Taphouse

Where: 1604 Kelly Ave, Baltimore, MD

When: Hours

For all of your foodie Friday lovers out there I have a delicious seafood option for you! The Nickel Taphouse located near Mount Washington is going to be your go to place for oysters and the like! Whether you are stopping in for brunch or for a nice sit down dinner you will not be disappointed!

If you are more a morning person (but not really because its brunch) there are plenty of options for you, you can go with the not-so-classic classic brunch featuring Eggs in Hell which includes three eggs, tomato sauce, parmesan, olives, crostini and for some spice in your life Jalapenos.

For dinner I would recommend the iced oysters… wouldn’t mind some right now actually! These are delicious along side a chopped salad!

Bottom line—head to The Nickel Taphouse.

OuijaBoard What: Ouija 7-Eleven!

Where: 529 N Charles Street

So lets a get a little spooky and wacky here (since it is Wednesday) and lets talk about Ouija Boards. Ya, those really creepy boards featured in movies like Paranormal Activity. Well, our dear Baltimore is said to be the place where these famous Ouija Boards came to be! If you have lived in Baltimore for years and didn’t know this or you’re a tourist this should be of great interest to you! The wackiest thing of all is that this place used to be a hotel providing rooms and is now a 7-Eleven serving hot dogs. Don’t believe it? Well this 7-Eleven holds the plaque to prove that the Ouija Board started in that exact spot… Many years ago in the year 1890. So for fans, tourists, or residents this is the place to stop by, get a chocolate bar and a picture with the famous plaque on your Wacky Wednesday!

Super Bowl 50 Preview

Monday, February 1st, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

The 50th edition of the world’s most popular sporting event will take place in Santa Clara, California at Levi’s Stadium on February 7th. The game will feature two teams with completely different identities.

The Carolina Panthers had the best record in the NFL this season going 17-1, earning the #1 seed in the NFC. They led the NFL in total points thanks to former Heisman Trophy winner, Cam Newton. Many people counted the Panthers out of playoff contention when Newton’s number one target, Kelvin Benjamin, went down with a knee injury before the season started. However, that injury did not deter the Panthers at all. Newton responded with an MVP caliber season and Carolina’s second appearance in the Super Bowl in team history. (more…)

RedStar What: Red Star Bar & Grill

Where: 906 South Wolfe Street

When: Hours

Head down to Fells Point to cozy up in this warm space for a great meal!

When in Baltimore, start your meal off by scooping a grilled pita into a hearty bowl of Red Star’s crab dip! Or keep it simple with an appetizing Wisconsin Cheese Plate, orrr there are plenty of other options! Enjoy a Mushroom Pizza with caramelized mushrooms and onions, or grab hold of a scrumptious Bistro Steak Sandwich, made with grilled, coffee marinated beef along side avocados! I think though when in a pub, you should do a classic Fish n’ Chips, you just cannot go wrong with beer-battered Cod and tar tar sauce. You just can’t.
