We’re not sure whether it was our explosion of locavore-minded cafes and food trucks, our proliferation of defiantly weird local art and artists, or our amazing (booyah!) sports teams—but Baltimore suddenly felt like the place to be. And not in a trendy, flavor-of-the-month kind of way, either. Just in a, well, Baltimore way.</span></p> <p><a href="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/bestofbaltimore2013" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Best of Best of Baltimore Wed, 14 Aug 2013 14:18:41 +0000 Baltimore magazine 8962 at http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site Best of Baltimore: News http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-byline"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> By Ron Cassie with Andrew Zaleski </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-news" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg imagecache-linked imagecache-article_mainimg_linked"><img src="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/sites/all/files/imagecache/article_mainimg/images/articles/2013/08/10441-2013-08.jpg" alt="Baltimore magazine" title="Deborah Weiner" width="250" height="329" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <h3>Citizen Crime Blog</h3> <h4>Baltimore Crime</h4> <p><a href="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Best of People Best of Baltimore News Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:55:05 +0000 Michael Langmack 8955 at http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site Best of Baltimore: Arts http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/arts/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-arts <div class="field field-type-text field-field-byline"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> By John Lewis </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/old-site/arts/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-arts" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg imagecache-linked imagecache-article_mainimg_linked"><img src="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/sites/all/files/imagecache/article_mainimg/images/articles/2013/08/10435-2013-08.jpg" alt="Baltimore magazine" title="Baltimore School for the Arts’ Appalachian Spring Festival" width="250" height="149" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <h3>Artist</h3> <h4>Chul Hyun Ahn</h4> <p>Costas Grimaldis first came across Ahn’s light sculptures at the Korean artist’s MICA thesis show in 2002. Since then, Ahn’s work has been a fixture at Grimaldis’s Charles Street gallery. He’s also been compared to artists Dan Flavin and James Turrell, found his way into many private collections, and been exhibited in France, Germany, and at this year’s Venice Biennale. Ahn’s potential, like his mind-bending art, seems limitless.</p> <p><a href="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/arts/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-arts" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Arts Best of Artists Best of Baltimore Culture Dance Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:55:04 +0000 Michael Langmack 8952 at http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site Best of Baltimore: Service http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-service <div class="field field-type-text field-field-byline"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> By Ken Iglehart </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-service" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg imagecache-linked imagecache-article_mainimg_linked"><img src="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/sites/all/files/imagecache/article_mainimg/images/articles/2013/08/10446-2013-08.jpg" alt="Baltimore magazine" title="Lisa Vogel Agency care provider.

But perhaps his biggest stroke of genius was to offer brunch three days a week, Friday through Sunday. You can go traditional with a variety of Benedicts, several omelets, or steak and eggs. There are also twists on the familiar, like Heath Bar pancakes, lobster home fries, and a morning cobb salad. 1017 W. 36th Street, <a href="#">410-366-0606 </a>.</p> <p><a href="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/food-and-dining/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-food" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Food and Dining Best of Best of Baltimore Culture Fine Dining Food Trends Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:55:09 +0000 Michael Langmack 8953 at http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site Best of Baltimore: Lifestyle http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-lifestyle <div class="field field-type-text field-field-byline"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> By Hillary Geisbert and Jane Marion </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-lifestyle" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg imagecache-linked imagecache-article_mainimg_linked"><img src="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/sites/all/files/imagecache/article_mainimg/images/articles/2013/08/10450-2013-08.jpg" alt="Baltimore magazine" title="" width="250" height="336" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <h3>Accessories</h3> <h4>Treasure House Accessories</h4> <p><a href="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-lifestyle" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Best of Shopping Best of Baltimore Exercise Gifts Lifestyle Style Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:55:07 +0000 Michael Langmack 8957 at http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site Best of Baltimore: Fun http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-fun <div class="field field-type-text field-field-byline"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> By Jess Blumberg and Amy Mulvihill </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-fun" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg imagecache-linked imagecache-article_mainimg_linked"><img src="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/sites/all/files/imagecache/article_mainimg/images/articles/2013/08/10440-2013-08.jpg" alt="Baltimore magazine" title="Mixed Cocktail" width="250" height="375" class="imagecache imagecache-article_mainimg"/></a> </div> </div> </div> <h3>Bar Crawl</h3> <h4>Charm City Pedal Mill</h4> <p><a href="http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-fun" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Best of Nightlife Best of Baltimore Drinks Hobbies Taverns Thu, 29 Aug 2013 13:55:08 +0000 Michael Langmack 8954 at http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site Best of Baltimore Readers' Poll 2013 Results http://www.baltimoremagazine.net/old-site/best-of/2013/08/best-of-baltimore-2013-readers-poll-results <div class="field field-type-text field-field-deck"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Your choices for the Best of Baltimore.
