2016_0210_9662_3611Bear Hands– You’ll pay for this

Released: April 15, 2016

Rate: 7/10

Originally from Brooklyn, NY Bear Hands releases their new album , You’ll pay for this earlier this month. The band comprised of, Dylan Rau, Ted Feldman, Val Loper, TJ Orscher characterizes themselves as being Alternaitive/Indie rock, as ambiguous as the sounds, so is the music on the album. It definitely genre bends, though at the core of the music, it is very much Bear Hands’ sound. Read the rest of this entry »

Tourism Tuesday: Penguin Coast

April 26th, 2016 by Allison Langley

penguincircle What: Penguin Coast

Where: Maryland Zoo

When: Hours

I am very excited to tell you about Penguin Coast at the Maryland Zoo and I think I might procrastinate on everything and go visit penguins. They are cute, they are friendly, and they look funny when they walk. I love them.

So waddle on down to the Maryland Zoo to see your favorite lil’ guys in the new exhibit. Penguin Coast features African penguins, this habitat is designed to replicate an African penguin’s environment on the South African Coast. Luckily for us humans, we will be able to get closer than ever and truly observe penguins with the new design. This is a great addition for both the penguins and their fans!

Go here to find out all the info about our lil’ penguins!

Tourism Tuesday: Inner Harbor

April 19th, 2016 by Allison Langley

HarborWhat: The Inner Harbor

Where: The Inner Harbor

When: Whenever you want to go.

I think this might be the most vague Tourism Tuesday, but yes, the Inner Harbor in the spring is something that every tourist and Baltimorean should visit/experience. We have all been spoiled with this amazing weather the past couple of days so how can one not think of a harbor with sail boats, blue crab, water taxis and the taste of a cool drink down by the water.

The Inner Harbor is the place to go because not only do they offer excellent dining choices they also have a wealth of fun activities. Try out the water taxi with the family to see all of Baltimore’s sites, or hit up Ripley’s Believe It or Not, or just go for a nice walk around the harbor.

Food Friday: Kooper’s Tavern

April 15th, 2016 by Allison Langley

1390405603 What: Kooper’s Tavern Brunch

Where: Historic Fells Point

When: Hours

Come on down to fells this weekend…weather is to suppose to balm(y)… and head to Kooper’s Tavern for a great brunch option or lunch if you’re not and never-will-be-a-brunch-person.
I had the pleasure of brunching at Kooper’s this past weekend; I jump started my early afternoon with an excellent table look out onto Thames and the water in Historic Fells Point. And then dove into the Cream of Crab… perfect brunch starter right? But, the Cream of Crab was so delicious I would’ve ate a vat of it.
Kooper’s does have a mean brunch, I got the French toast with whip cream and cinnamon and it was simply perfect. Or bite into a Fish Sandwich for lunch; blackened Atlantic Cod, avocado (amazing), fried onion straws, and cilantro lime aioli make this the perfect sandwich.
Stop on by to Kooper’s this weekend!
