johnny dollar's vault resides in the basement of stately dollar maisonTM, amongst the wine cellar, tiki bar, and finicky electrical panel. from time to time i will unearth various artifacts from either there or from the random crevices of my mind.

please visit the new and improved pig cookin' post!

NOTE: this blog will NOT deal with any recent pop culture (i.e. since about 1990) or topical issues, so if you're looking for discussion about britney baracko jacko flacco, look elsewhere, lol

only one little tavern left...


growin' up, i remembered seeing little tavern hamburger stands in silver spring, georgetown, wheaton, and bethesda... they were truly remnants of a former roadside era, and i was always sad when i inevitably saw them go.

well, here's the deal... the last little tavern in the baltimore area stands in dundalk, and the clock is ticking... it's at 6414 holabird avenue.

word on the street is that this last vestige of a once flourishing chain might not be around forever. so if you want to see what it was like to "buy 'em by the bag," i suggest you swing on by.

I loved Little Tavern -- those little grease bombs were awesome after a night of drinking.

I remember driving by the one in Laurel every other day when I went to College Park years ago. That one's gone now, too :(

I believe the one in Highlandtown (Eastern Avenue) is still open.
