100 things we love about Baltimore [Pictures]
A moody tavern. An extraordinary cocktail. The easy lapping of bay water against the banks of the Inner Harbor. Duckpin lanes. Old Bay. Art in an otherwise empty storefront. For all of these things, and for so many more, people love Baltimore. People feel how they feel about this place for their own reasons. It's personal and not necessarily explainable. Something between them and the city. But in the spirit of sharing the love, we asked some of the city's best-known personalities to reveal something that makes them fall for Baltimore. Take this list as personal suggestions, from one neighbor to another.

John Waters: One-stop beer-and-shop on Eastern Avenue( Amy Davis, Baltimore Sun / October 8, 2007 )
John Waters, filmmaker, performer and man of letters
"A great extreme bar enthusiast told me about the place that became my new favorite watering hole in Baltimore -- the amazingly eccentric bar on Eastern Avenue that is in the woman's house. Not only does she serve drinks, it is also a hardware store! You can buy tools, nails, household cleaning products right along with your beer. A dream set that could have come from one of my old movies. But the exact address has to remain a secret to not muddy its defiantly uncommercial appeal. (Hint hint -- it's located somewhere between South Broadway and South Patterson Park Avenue.)."
