Best Bars For Cinco De Mayo In Baltimore


REVIEW: Toss (A Gourmet Pizzeria) in Govans

DiningOUT in Baltimore

After watching “The Grand Budapest Hotel” at the refurbished and stylish main theater at “The Senator“, we were ready for dinner but also looking for something else other than the obvious choices across the street at Belvedere Square.   We  decided to try “Toss”, a casual and contemporary feel gourmet pizzeria, which is just 1/3 of a mile south of “The Senator”.  There’s a diverse mix of art on the wall that’s for sale (much of it at quite reasonable prices in the $30-$100 range)

Last Saturday was the first Maryland Bacon Festival. There was much anticipation and excitement because who doesn’t love bacon? This festival promised live music, creative samples from each food truck and vendor, and bacon infused cocktails. Tickets costed $25.00 minimum.

Baltimore Street Renamed In Young Boy’s Honor


BALTIMORE — Two months after a young boy died while walking by natural gas explosion at a Baltimore rowhouse, the street is being renamed in his honor.

On Saturday, a new sign went up, naming the street Troy Douglas Way. Troy would have been 9 years old on Sunday.

Troy was killed Feb. 19 in the fire as he was walking home from school on North Lakewood Avenue. His body was found under a collapsed wall from the house. Fire investigators believe the heating system or water heater could have ignited the natural gas.

Troy’s mother, Shanika Brown, says she appreciated the memorial in his honor. She says she only wishes she could have her son back and that the fire had never happened. But she says the community will always remember.
