johnny dollar's vault

retro pop culture and various local observations and ramblings.

Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
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

the fells point project... advice please?

image courtesy of tony millionaire at maakies. two thumbs up!!!

ok so like in 4 weeks i'm going to join in a convention of producers and fans of a crude yet sophisticated podcast here in the greatest city in america.

my comment-whoring™ question to you is, ok, i know fells point is all yuppie trendy now, but assuming a crowd of about 20 + people who likely enjoy both brewed and distilled spirits, where would you suggest i suggest we go?

extra points for funky/ironic/subcultural.

negative points for frat house / tasteful.

spanks in advance!

Wharf Rat is nice for diveyness and beer selection. Blarney Stone is nice for diveyness and Irishosity, but will occasionally feature a few lost and confused-looking fratboys that spilled over from the place next door. Cat's Eye and Full Moon for music with your beverage. Koopers is okay, as is Slainte but kind of buttoned-up. I heard One Eyed Mike's was cool, but I've never been. Birds of a Feather is great is you like whisky.

I agree with Cat's Eye. If the place is packed seek out the hidden bar in the back. Warf rat is fun too. The Horse You Rode in On wins for best name but has become a bit fratty. Oh wait, very fratty, sorry, no soup for me.

Are you going on a Friday/Saturday night? Fells Point is so much more pleasant Sun-Wed. Thursday gets college night-ish and Fri/Sat are the inevitable bachelor/bachelorette party bar crawls.
