The Book Thing Thing On March 2nd, 2016 a Baltimore institution burned.

Food Friday: Cannoli

April 29th, 2016 by Allison Langley

cannoli What: 60 cent Cannoli

Where: Vaccaro’s Italian Pastry Shop

When: May 12 9am to 10pm

I don’t think this Food Friday needs too much advertising, if “60 cent Cannoli’s” doesn’t grab you then I don’t know what will. I can’t help you. No one can help you.

These amazing, fabulous, decadent, carefully made cannoli’s are now going to be available every 2nd Thursday for the rest of the year! Buttt you can’t go into this lovely pastry shop and clean them out! Only two per person, which I think is very fair, I would be fine with half a cannoli for 60 cents, plus… incase you didn’t know… these bad boys are large.

So head on down! Get yo cannoli’s!!!

Baltimore Ballers

April 29th, 2016 by Brendan Pierce

Sports Saturday

Baltimore gets a lot of hype for developing some of the best lacrosse talent in the nation, but what is underappreciated is the amount of talent that Baltimore has generated on the hardwood. From NBA scoring champion, to FIBA World Champion, to NCAA Champion, Baltimore has produced a number of guys who have gone on to have success at the next level around the world.

Carmelo Anthony: Arguably the most famous athlete from Baltimore is New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony. Anthony is a 9 time all-star, 2 time Olympic Gold Medal winner, and he led the NBA in scoring in 2013. Anthony started his career at Towson Catholic High School before transferring to Oak Hill Academy. Anthony went on to attend Syracuse University in 2003 where he led his team to an NCAA championship in his only year at the school. Anthony was selected No. 3 overall in the 2003 NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets. Anthony spent the first 8 years of his career in Denver before getting traded to the Knicks in 2011. Anthony has done a terrific job giving back to the Baltimore community as well. He hosts an annual 3-on-3 tournament called “Melo’s H.O.O.D.” (Holding Our Own Destiny). The purpose of this event is to help fund the revitalization of the local community center for the youth. He also founded “The Carmelo Anthony Youth Development Center”, which he donated $1.5 million to the Living Classrooms Foundation. Read the rest of this entry »

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 »

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!
