Red Star

GO INSIDE

Red Star

Vibe: In days of yore, sailors who docked in Fells Point knew they could find some of the "comforts" of home wherever they spotted a building painted with a red star. Like those houses of ill-repute, Red Star also offers weary travelers a cold beer and a warm meal. Just don't expect to find the same sensual "accommodations" the sailors of the past had on their shore leave.

The Wildwoods

Miami Beach, Fla., has its Art Deco structures, Cape May, N.J., has its Victorian bed and breakfasts, and The Wildwoods have Doo Wop. Much like kitschy roadside attractions used to dot Route 66 before going the way of the dinosaurs, Doo Wop signage and motels characterize (and have been preserved in) The Wildwoods.

ABOUT THE BLOGGERS

Eduardo A. Encina left the Florida sun in 2012 to return home and cover the Orioles. A Jessup native and University of Maryland graduate, Encina previously covered another AL East team, the Tampa Bay Rays, for the St. Petersburg Times and the Tampa Tribune.

Dan Connolly has been covering sports for 16 years, and baseball and the Orioles for 12 seasons, including the past eight with The Sun. His first year covering baseball on a daily basis was Cal Ripken Jr.'s final season as a player. It's believed that is just a coincidence.

Dean Jones Jr. is the sports content editor overseeing Orioles coverage. A Towson University graduate, he started working at The Baltimore Sun in 2007. He previously managed high school sports coverage and also covered the Orioles minor league teams.

Peter Schmuck has been covering baseball for decades. He is now a general sports columnist, but has been a beat writer covering three major league teams (the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles) and also spent a decade as the Sun's national baseball writer.
