Football is Back in Baltimore!

September 16th, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

With the 2015 injury riddled season in the rear view mirror, the Baltimore Ravens are finally back to full strength and looking forward to the season. The Ravens have a number of players returning who missed a significant portion of last season including quarterback Joe Flacco, wide receiver Steve Smith Sr, and running back Justin Forsett. To go along with free agent acquisitions Mike Wallace and Eric Weddle, the Ravens have reloaded for the 2016 campaign as they look to rebound after a disappointing season last year.

Food Fridays: Papermoon Diner

September 16th, 2016 by Cara Hullings

What: Papermoon Diner

Where: 227 W 29th St

When: Hours

Funky. Eccentric. Delicious. That’s the best way to do justice to the Papermoon Diner. Full of color and strange decorations, like doll heads, this place is Baltimore’s take on diners.

Cool decorations aren’t the only appeal though. This diner has amazing food ranging from brunch to nachos to pasta to milkshakes (pictured above). With food for vegans and meat-lovers alike, this is a diner for everyone. The only negative about Papermoon is that it takes forever to decide what you want! I would recommend something to you, but even I can’t make up my mind as to what’s the best. Check out their menu here and stop in to pig out.

Wacky Wednesday: DogFest!

September 14th, 2016 by Cara Hullings

logo-dogfest2016-final-300x257What: Dogs!

Where: Baltimore Humane Society

When: Saturday, September 17th

Let’s be real: everyone loves dogs. If you don’t you’re either lying or allergic to them. Well, if you are allergic, then this event might not be for you since The Baltimore Humane Society will be overflowing with dogs on Saturday the 17th from 10am-4om. For everyone else though, tickets will be $15 at the door, which includes a free ticket to Magooby’s Joke House. This event has something for everyone (and every animal) with games, contests, crafts, and food. Enter your dog into a best costume contest, take him bowling, train him, and watch some cool demos together. OR, if you’re like me, check out some great vendors, raise some money for the Humane Society, pet every single dog, and try your hardest not to adopt all the animals. No matter what you plan is, you should definitely show up and support your local puppies.

First Coffeehouse of the year: SKRIBE

September 6th, 2016 by The Professor

SkribeWelcome back (or just Welcome for you First Year folks)!  WLOY is kicking off the 2016 Coffeehouse series with a new location and a new artist to the series.  Annapolis-based Skribe will be performing at our NEW LOCATION adjacent to the Starbucks on campus this Thursday 8-10pm.  Starbucks will stay open with extended hours to support the Coffeehouse shows all year, so you can still enjoy a Pumpkin Spice Latte and a cake pop while you enjoy the sweet sounds of Skribe.  We loved the show Skribe put on for us over the summer at our Honfest stage and so we invited him back, along with Gingerwolf, to perform for our kick off Coffeehouse event.  Check out more Skribe tunes on their website, including free downloads.

Concert Review: Modern Baseball @ Baltimore Soundstage (Baltimore, MD) & The Fillmore (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

July 4th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

Review by: Tara Howell

Right after MoBo surprise released The Perfect Cast EP, I had the chance to see them for the first time at my favorite Baltimore venue, Ottobar, in the fall of 2015. More than any other concert I’ve been to, it felt like a group therapy session. In a room full of strangers, I’ve never felt more connected. It was at this concert that I really, really realized not only how powerful music is, but how special this band really is. Read the rest of this entry »
