Monday Morning Review

  • Everything is going Purple: If you haven't taken a look around town you should because it's getting Purple for the Ravens. Baltimore City Hall and the Battle Monument are lit up with Purple and many businesses have put purple filters on their lights to support the Purple & Black. The Ravens logo has been painted on both Federal Hill and War Memorial Plaza.
  • Heavy Seas Ale House is set to open up on February 15th in the Tack Factory on Bank Street. Only a few more weeks!
  • In other Brewing news, Charm City Brewing Company could begin brewing this spring at a site at 401 E. 30th Street just easy of JHU in Abell. The new brewery will be a co-op that will allow Baltimore-Washington Brew Works which makes The Raven, and Oliver Breweries which makes beer for The Pratt Street Alehouse expand their capacity and distribution.
  • Loyola basketball jumps to an 11-4 record while Towson sets the NCAA Division I record for most consecutive losses at 35.
  • Another construction crane: Work began a few weeks ago on a new parking garage on the JHH campus next to the almost finished housing tower. You can expect to see an addition tower crane go up this month for the new State Public Health Lab.
  • Moving Right Along: This is the name of a temporary art exhibit at Baltimore Penn Station. Sponsored by the Contemporary Museum and featuring work by MICA students and professors, the three visual art pieces bring some interesting life to the lobby and a vacant store front in the station. Don't be surprised if you see some interesting animations "walking" by.
