Our most popular story this week was Ed Gunts’ preview writeup about yesterday’s premiere for The Sandlot, the new waterside bar, restaurant and “beach hangout” at Harbor Point. The collaboration between Foodshed LLC and Beatty Development Group has been months in the making. It consists of a largely outdoor dining and entertainment venue with volleyball and bocce courts, a children’s play area, picnic tables, an Airstream trailer and, as the name suggests, bountiful sand.

Visitors can enjoy the comfort of indoor eating and drinking, however, as the bar and kitchen are made from customized shipping containers.

Ed offered this assessment of its ambiance: “It may have its roots in rustic campgrounds and childhood sandlots, but Sandlot also has the sophisticated vibe of the latest generation of rooftop bars in Manhattan that are open to the sky and city views.”

The most popular story on Baltimore Fishbowl this week was Ed Gunts’ weekly column that led with an announcement about the Sandlot, a 12,000-square-foot space set to open on the southernmost tip of Harbor Point this April. The waterfront park will feature volleyball and bocce courts, a family-friendly park and an otherwise unspecified venture collaboration between Beatty Development and Foodshed with locally sourced fare. It’s envisioned as a temporary use for the space that will last four to five years.
