The Resurgence of Natty Boh!

National Bohemian beer is back on tap after 15 years!

We've lived here almost one year now and much like PBR has a hip/shtick/cool factor across the country, National Bohemian beer, or "Natty Boh," is experiencing a resurgence around here. And as well it should be, given that it was originally brewed in Baltimore's Brewers Hill neighborhood. The original brewery complex is now a mixed-use development of self-storage, housing and nearby shops/restaurants.
If you like the Natty Boh dandy icon, you'll find him on everything possible at Fells Point's Natty Boh Store. You can even get two classic icons on a vibrant red background: Mr. Boh and the Maryland state flag (click link for explanation of juxtaposition of red/white, gold/black, top left).

Natty Boh has its nostalgic and budget-friendly values; as for taste, well, let's just say its "lawnmower beer," meaning it's great for something COLD after a hot stint, or if you're having a blowout party or a chili cook-off. If you're looking for Baltimore microbrews, check out these places (and Brewers Art is pretty nice, so ignore the posts' dislike of it). I'm personally a fan of Heavy Seas' Loose Cannon pale ale, an homage to pirates, yaarrrghh!

Whatever you're drinking, enjoy!

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

Maybe because I'm a only child and thus friends often feel like family, or maybe it's just because we all need a little more raising up these days.

So when I heard that a friend from the Nashville, TN area who co-founded and operates a catering business decided to share her culinary talents with the masses and create a line of bottled products, EV Originals, I did a big ol' happy dance.

Some Like It Hot -- And Toasted on Both Sides

The latest news in appliances seems to indicate there's no love for the good ol' traditional Crock-Pot.
Fictional drama aside, the slow cooker most of us grew up with is receiving some healthy competition from the new hot thing, the Instapot
But in our house, we're having a face-off with a completely different category of kitchen appliances -- it's the Toaster vs Toaster Oven.

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…
