Tourism Tuesday: Orioles!

April 5th, 2016 by Allison Langley

Os What: Oriole’s Game!

Where: Camden Yards

When: Game Schedule!

Baltimoreeeee the O’s are back and better than ever!
It is finally that time of year where we can head over to Camden Yards, get a hot dog and what a good old fashioned ball game. For Baltimore natives or tourists this is an excellent idea to hang out with friends and family as the weather begins to get nicer and nicer. Make sure to find your best orange or Oriole’s attire, a faded orange baseball cap is absolute must, do not speak to me if you are not wearing one.

Oriole Park opened on April 6 in 1992, this is a ball park that paved the way for many more across the country. So while in Baltimore this season why not catch a game and take a tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Go here for all the Oriole information you will ever need!

Lukas Graham-Blue

April 5th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-6Luke Graham-Blue

Released: April 01, 2016

Rate: 4/10

Lukas Graham, originally from Christiania an artistic community in the middle of Copenhagen, released his second studio album, Blue  through Warner Bros. Records. Originally garnering American buzz and success from his song, “7 years”, the album is a kind of a disappointment. Blue, is pretty stagnant and does not drift far, melodically from 7 years. Graham however, does try to explore other genres of music: some R&B, some funk, etc. but it ends up making the album come off sloppy and disjointed. Read the rest of this entry »

Food Friday: Canton Dockside

April 1st, 2016 by Allison Langley

CantonDockside What: Canton Dockside

Where: 3301 Boston St. BMORE

When: Hours

Yes Baltimore is known for crabs, we all know that.

We know that because they are so so so good… especially at Canton Dockside.

Stop by Boston St to devour some amazing crab the classic Bmore way; knife and chisel in hand. Canton Dockside has the freshest crabs out there as they deal directly with the fishermen. If you’re not into cracking some shells no worries, they have plenty of other options that are less work intensive. Start off with a Crab Pretzel; a homemade pretzel with their delicious crab dip on top. Then move to a crab bisque (my personal fave) and maybe scoop an oyster or two (I promise it’s easy). Next, lets bite into a Blue Crab burger, or an Oyster Sandwich.

As you can see Canton Dockside has a wealth of seafood options for you to munch on.

March 31st, 2016 by Allison Langley

DanceTheatreofHarlem What: Dance Theatre of Harlem

Where: Murphy Fine Arts Center

When: April 2

I have always wanted to be a ballerina. But… sadly I am not. Luckily for me, I can admire the ballet by sitting observantly from the audience in the Murphy Fine Arts Cente on April 2!
The Dance Theatre of Harlem will be coming to Charm City to show off their amazing talents. Now, you’re probably expecting to sit through a classical ballet, but if you know anything about the Dance Theatre of Harlem they are anything but that. They are modern and innovative with their moves while being on pointe.

Check out the ballet in a whole new way on April 2 at 8pm! Click here for tickets and other information about the Dance Theatre of Harlem!

With a vibe similar to “Talking Heads”, Underworld releases the album, Barbara Barbara, We face a shining future after a six year hiatus. The album is a testament to their electronic nature.
