Wondering what to do for New Year’s?
We’ve got you covered whether you are young, old, an early bird, a night...
Baltimore Ravens win Super Bowl XLVII.
Grand Prix hits the wall.
Maryland gets tough on guns.
Harbor Point clash: Project moving forward, despite controversy.
Chris Davis becomes Crush Davis.
It’s lights, camera, action (again) at the Senator Theatre.
City endures two weeks of homicide hell.
Towson teacher injured in Boston Marathon bombing.
Earl Weaver dies at 82.
A year ago, in this very space, we were already trumpeting the success of HBO’s VEEP, but were a little uncertain about this whole House of Cards thing.
Sure, the pedigree was unimpeachable: David Fincher as executive producer, Kevin Spacey as lead. But Netflix? Is the world really going to take Netflix seriously as a producer of original content?
Oh, what a difference a year makes. Because not...
MICA President Fred Lazarus announced his retirement in April, marking an end to an impressive, if unlikely, academic career that transformed the school and the area around it.
In a memo informing colleagues of his decision, Lazarus noted that he initially expected the job to last “three to five years,” but it turned out to be a 35-year run. “When I started, I did not have the traditional...
We lost a member of Orioles royalty this year when Earl Weaver passed away on a Caribbean cruise at the age of 82.
The cruise was baseball-themed, which seemed fitting for the notoriously feisty Hall of Famer who managed the Orioles for 17 seasons.
Yes, his salty tongue got him ejected from the game 91 times (including once in both games of a double-header!) but, more importantly, Weaver was a...
This is not the way the cookie is supposed to crumble. Early in the year, Baltimore awoke to find out that its iconic, beloved Berger Cookies were becoming scarce to non-existent.
The city Health Department had shut down the Cherry Hill plant, where the well-known treats are made, on Jan. 31 because it lacked a food-service license. It wasn’t a food issue. It was a paperwork problem. Soon, stores...
Twenty-nine-year-old Towson preschool teacher Erika Brannock was stationed near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, waiting to cheer on her mother during the final strides of the race, when it happened: bright flashes, screams and cries, the sensation of falling in slow motion.
The first of two homemade bombs fashioned by radicalized Islamist immigrant brothers Dzhokhar and...
Last year, city shoppers were lucky enough to receive an Anthropologie and J.Crew in Harbor East.
This October, The Shops at Canton Crossing finally got its Target. Now, there really isn’t a reason to leave the area. Aside from truly being a one-stop shop—you go for a box of detergent and leave with a bicycle, a pair of gloves, a gallon of ice cream, and a china set—the 135,000-square-foot store...
Just as the city hoped it might shake its “Bodymore, Murdaland” reputation with annual homicides two years ago dipping below 200 for the first time since 1978, two weeks straight out of The Wire gripped residents this summer.
Over a frightening 10-day period in late June, some 40 people were shot, including 16 killed, once again calling attention to the city’s gun and gang violence problems.
Famed Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, credited with the first successful separation of twins conjoined at the head, simultaneously announced his retirement from medicine this year and launched a political firestorm.
The 62-year-old, whose rise from poverty in Detroit inspired a movie, first made headlines in February at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, where he was viewed as...
