Explore Baltimore: Trevor Noah Comes to Town

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017 by The Professor

What: Trevor Noah in Baltimore

Where: Hippodrome at Franc-Merrik Pac

When: November 4th at 7- 10pm (Unfortunately, the other date is sold out!)

The South African television, radio host and comedian, Trevor Noah, will be making an appearance in Baltimore! The host of The Daily Show will be doing stand-up comedy at the Hippodrome, and has already SOLD OUT one show, forcing them to book another date! SO YOU ARE IN LUCK! But hurry, the last show sold out in two days.

Trevor Noah has become one of the leading figures in modern pop culture and media. In his short time with The Daily Show, he has been able to accomplish so much in satirical political commentary– including getting a White House interview with Former President Barack Obama. He also finished the first quarter of 2017 with one of the highest rating The Daily Show has ever seen. If you can’t make at to his stand-up show, I encourage you to check out his work! He is a talented commentator, and performer.

Explore Baltimore: Common Ground

Friday, July 28th, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: Common Ground Cafe & Coffee

Where: 819 W 36th St

When: 7am-5pm Everyday

Let me let you in on a little tip: Common Ground is the best place in the world. No matter what you get at this place, you WILL enjoy it. I whole heartedly suggest walking in and just ordering the first thing you read because it’s guaranteed to be good. Common Ground has a little bit of everything from coffee to New York style bagels to sandwiches to vegan/vegetarian options. My personal favorite is the BLT on a sun-dried tomato bagel, which the friendly servers suggested I try one time. This combo did not disappoint and I am now hooked on it, craving my new favorite sandwich basically 24/7. If your not a meat person, then try out Common Ground’s other classics like the Avenue Powerhouse, which is homemade hummus, mixed greens, tomatoes and cucumbers, or go for the quiche of the day. Whatever you decide on, grab a delicious coffee with it (and maybe even use one of Common Ground’s WLOY mugs) and sit down to enjoy the great atmosphere of this amazing cafe.

Explore Baltimore: The Food Market

Friday, April 21st, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: The Food Market

Where: 1017 W 36th St.

When: Sun-Thurs, 5pm-11pm Fri & Sat, 5pm-12am

The Food Market loves to cook up some comfort food, but make it gourmet. Described as a place for foodies to feel their exotic side, this restaurant and its award-winning chef, Chad Gauss, combine regular ingredients with irregular and “unparalleled” techniques. Gauss, who has been sharing his love for cooking since the age of 14, adds a twist on classic foods. In the mood for something like pizza or chicken finger? Well try them twist with menu options like crispy lobster fingers or a duck confit flatbread.  But if you’re not feeling that adventurous, The Food Market still has the basics like the boring caesar salad or a warm lobster roll. Regardless, this amazing food as well as the industrial-modern vibe create a full, enjoyable dining experience for everyone.
