I'm keeping my eye on Harbor East's bar scene. What would you like to see open there in the next year or two?
Right now, the James Joyce pub is your only option for late-night drinks, and that place gets packed on Friday and Saturday nights. Otherwise, you have to walk to Little Italy or, even further, Fells Point.
I was talking to the Sun's architecture critic Ed Gunts about all the new buildings going up, and we both think that when the new movie theater opens, a whole bunch of bars will follow.
Harbor East feels like a totally different city. It's so new and tall -- and the parking situation is horrible. I'm just worried that any new bar there will be a plastic, generic spot like Hard Rock Cafe. What do you think will happen?
