OK, then, how about Slaughterhouse 24?
Dempsey's Brew Pub and Restaurant, the warehouse joint at Camden Yards, had a different working title: Catch 24. There was just one problem that catchy name, a mash-up of "Catch 22" and former Oriole Rick Dempsey's uniform number. "People heard 'catch' and thought it was a seafood restaurant," said Joshua Distenfeld, executive chef at Camden Yards. Out went Catch 24. (Kenneth K. Lam, Baltimore Sun /April 4, 2012)
After 120 years of continuous operation, Fields of Pikesville has closed. The last day of operation was Saturday. Although Fields has had a long stretch of struggling on Pikesville's main street, the store's general manager Jeffrey Levin said there was a drastic drop in business in recent months.
Even though the pharmacy stopped operating in 1998, the establishment was still called Fields Pharmacy by its loyal clientele, who continued to gather at its well-known lunch counter, enjoying club sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches and chocolate snowballs.
