Tourism Tuesday: Monumental

February 15th, 2011 by Amanda Nolan

Long, tall and gorgeous, Baltimore’s Washington Monument stands proudly in the classy Mount Vernon neighborhood.

Designed in the early 1800’s by the same architect who created the better-known Washington Monument in D.C., it can be seen from inside the sophisticated Walter’s Art Gallery and is only steps away from the musically rambunctious Peabody Institute. Read the rest of this entry »

Happy Singles Awareness Day!

February 14th, 2011 by Amanda Nolan

It’s that time of year again. It’s the time when suddenly everyone around you appears to be in a loving relationship whereas the longest relationship you’ve had lately has been with a tub of Ben & Jerry’s. That’s right; it’s Valentine’s Day, or, as I like to call it, Singles Awareness Day.

This year Boulder Garden Cafe has decided to celebrate with an Anti-Valentine’s Day dinner from 5:30 to 7:30 today. So grab all of your single and lonely friends and head over to Boulder while WLOY plays some depressingly upbeat music to really get you in the spirit of this joyous occasion.

Spokes – Everyone I Ever Met

February 13th, 2011 by Eric Loose

It doesn’t take long to figure out that Everyone I Ever Met is orchestrated in a different vein than Spokes’ rookie EP, People Like People Like You. Risks have been taken, and mind you, these aren’t “risks” like we normally think of them. People Like People Like You was a fairly conventional post-rock EP, but this description belies its beauty. Poor Spokes watched from outside the lines as less-worthy post-rockers enjoyed oodles more fame than they. With soaring violins and condensed song lengths, Spokes crafted a mellifluous Shortcut to Enjoying Post-Rock. Somehow the Englishmen crammed the magic of every spellbinding post-rock record you’ve heard into a delightfully accessible package. Three years later, Spokes sound bent on transforming this winning formula, and unexpectedly it pays off. Read the rest of this entry »

Monster trucks. Monster drivers. MONSTER JAM.

That’s right, the carnival of carnage is coming to Baltimore at the end of February, setting up shop at the 1st Mariner Arena from the 25th until the 27th. Monster Jam is a live motorsport event that tours the country, allowing fans to look on as enormous trucks destroy smaller ones salvaged from scrap yards only to meet a more painful demise. Appearing in four separate installments, there will be competitions in both racing, as well as performing freestyle tricks with these monstrous machines. With names like “Grave Digger,” “Martial Law,” “Aftershock” and “Mechanical Mischief,” it’s almost impossible to turn away from the mayhem. Read the rest of this entry »

Loyola Men’s Basketball Game Preview: Niagara

February 11th, 2011 by Anthony Santiago

The Loyola Greyhounds are on a run that can potentially take them to a land that they haven’t seen in quite sometime. This land I speak of has many treasures, treasures that a team strive for every year. The cryptic language I speak of may be freaking you out but don’t worry, it means something. So surely, many of you know that I am talking about Loyola’s great chances to actually win a MAAC Championship and find themselves in the beginning round of NCAA Tournament in March. In Conference play so far, they have found themselves 8-5 and continue to play strong on both sides of the court. Read the rest of this entry »
