The Debate of the Decade

Saturday, November 14th, 2015 by Brendan Pierce

Sports SaturdayShould college athletes get paid?

It is such a simple question, but the answer is a lot more complex then yes or no.

Paying college athletes is an extremely complicated scenario because there are so many sports, schools, and conferences that distributing the money equally would be a nightmare.

However, I think that the resolution to this matter is fairly simple.

College athletics is a business and it comes down to which sports make the most amount of money for the NCAA.

While out and about in Mt. Vernon one must visit Dooby’s Café. I would be confident in describing it as a hipster-modern destination with great food and drinks. The inside is inviting with a modern design and rustic tables. Dooby’s Café serves absolutely delicious food! Get a filling Steak & Egg Sandwich, made with cheddar, gochujang aioli, and caramelized onions. Or, go big with the Homestyle Breakfast, featuring two over-easy eggs, chicken sausage, bacon, hash and toast. They also serve sandwiches like the Korean BBQ Cheesesteak, and yummy noodles. After stuffing your face with Dooby’s delicious entrees, dive into their Damn Good Pie, consisting of Brûléed buttermilk tart with a chocolate cookie crumble crust! Two please! They also offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options!

Tourism Tuesday: Mount Vernon

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 by Allison Langley

mt vernonWhat: Mount Vernon (Neighborhood)

Where: Between N Calvert and Franklin

When: Anytime!

When I am “touristing” I think one of my favorite things to do is to visit new neighborhoods. Luckily, in Baltimore there is a wealth of neighborhoods to visit, one them being Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon is located just north of downtown Baltimore. It is a beautiful and historical neighborhood, it is known as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Baltimore. It houses the first Washington Monument; it’s hard to miss! Along with its history there are great restaurants and other cool spots to see.
Check out Dooby’s while you’re in the neighborhood or maybe have a nice read at the beautiful George Peabody Library, or marvel at the grandeur of Mt. Vernon place United Methodist Church. I would recommend to simply sit down on a park bench, while it is still fall, and enjoy the scenery!
