  • Editorial: Harford liquor board should not interfere with business competition

    For the second time in the past few weeks, the Harford County Liquor Control Board is poised to take action for the purpose of regulating a business market rather than for the purpose of ensuring public safety. A few weeks ago, the board voted not to...

    Blue Sage Cafe and Wine Bar, new in Mount Washington
    Blue Sage Cafe and Wine Bar opened on June 1 in Mount Washington in the Kelly Avenue space that was formerly The Falls (and before that Freida's Kitchen and, for years, the Mt. Washington Food Market). I've been hearing about Blue Sage - and read about...
  • Ellicott City: Glen Mar UM Church gearing up for its Walk to Bethlehem

    Some people think October is a too early to start thinking about Christmas, but not at Glen Mar United Methodist Church, where preparations for its annual Walk to Bethlehem are in full swing. Now in its fifth year, the free event attracts 1,500...
  • Wine Find: 2011 Matanzas Creek Sauvignon Blanc

    This is neither a typical nor an average sauvignon blanc. Matanzas Creek has a style all its own, and it certainly ranks in the top 1 percent of sauvignon blancs worldwide. The flavor profile is not the typical mouthful of grass and herbs. Fig is the...

  • Verde Pizza mixes kid-friendliness, sophistication

    Verde Pizza mixes kid-friendliness, sophistication
    Verde Pizza Napoletana is a family establishment. But don't let that scare you. You won't find arcade games, or even crayons, in the Canton eatery, which opened in September in the former Birches space. You will find good Neapolitan pizza, helpful...

    Wine, like all food products, has a shelf life. Some bottles can keep for a decade or more in the cellar, others are meant to be consumed within a year or two of release. But the question of "longevity" shifts on its axis once the cork is popped. With...

  • Good time to dine on red, white and blue

    Good time to dine on red, white and blue
    What with our reliving the War of 1812 with special zeal this year because Baltimore is home to the "Star Spangled Banner," it's easy to come up with a theme for a seasonal dinner. Whether it be for Independence Day or Bastille Day (July 14), or simply to...
  • Wine Find: 2011 Bota Box RedVolution

    Longtime readers know I am a strong proponent of boxed wines. It is a great delivery system, but at the end of the day it's about the quality of the wine inside. This red wine is simply the best red I've encountered in a box to date. It's a medium-...
