Where: Fells Point
When: Click here for hours
Barcocinaaaaa, everyone needs to get down to Fells Point to enjoy some delicious, amazing, and tantalizing modern Mexican cuisine! I had the pleasure of dining in for a sunny brunch. Seriously though, so sunny. The windows surrounding the restaurant give you a wonderful view of the harbor and Fells Point, while enjoying a beautiful sun-shining day.
To accompany this view, there are savory brunch options. I had the hash brown tacos… Two taco shells made out of hash browns with hollandaise sauce…amazing. My friends had breakfast enchiladas and jalapeno corn bread, just too too good.
Come too late for brunch well then grab some lunch, grab some dinna. Dive into The Reuben or the Crab Guacamole! Yum Yum.
Come by Barcocina you wont be sorry!

What is better than listening to a Tony- Award winning Broadway singer belting out your most cherished holiday carols and Christmas classics? Nothing. Literally nothing.
The critics such as the New York Times and US Today heavily praise Mitchell, saying how prominent he is the Broadway world. He branches off too to television, film and concerts. Mitchell has worked with several famous performers and has been invited twice to perform at the white house! If the president loves him then you will too!
The amazing conductor, Damon Gupton, will join Brian Stokes Mitchell. It will be an excellent performance for you and your friends to enjoy this holiday season.

Saying goodbye to the game that you have loved ever since you were a little boy or girl is never easy. It does not matter if you are a high school athlete or a 5-time NFL MVP, hanging your cleats up for the last time is never an easy task.
Unfortunately, we are witnessing the beginning of the end to two iconic athletes who have been performing at an elite level for the entirety of their careers. Peyton Manning and Kobe Bryant are two of the best to ever play their respective sport. Read the rest of this entry »
