Stephanie Berlanga: The way things go 

Release Date: December 29, 2011 

Rate: 7/10 

Stephanie Berlanga’s The way things go, is definitely a step in the right direction for this vocal powerhouse. Described, by many as playing “acoustic pop music” Berlanga’s EP definitely shows off her wide range and powerful vocals, the production on the album is amazing especially for someone who is an up and coming artist. The album gives a small insight into what Berlanga can do; she mixes various different genres, including some country, pop, acoustic, and some alternative rock.  Read the rest of this entry »

RedStar What: Red Star Bar & Grill

Where: 906 South Wolfe Street

When: Hours

Head down to Fells Point to cozy up in this warm space for a great meal!

When in Baltimore, start your meal off by scooping a grilled pita into a hearty bowl of Red Star’s crab dip! Or keep it simple with an appetizing Wisconsin Cheese Plate, orrr there are plenty of other options! Enjoy a Mushroom Pizza with caramelized mushrooms and onions, or grab hold of a scrumptious Bistro Steak Sandwich, made with grilled, coffee marinated beef along side avocados! I think though when in a pub, you should do a classic Fish n’ Chips, you just cannot go wrong with beer-battered Cod and tar tar sauce. You just can’t.

Red Star Bar & Grill offers you a large variety of delectable dishes with a great ambiance for you and your friends to chat over! Click here for the full menu!
