Grand Central, Baltimore’s largest LGBTQ-friendly nightclub and a fixture on Charles Street for the past 15 years, will change hands early in 2019, current owner Don Davis said.

For many in Baltimore, serving jury duty is about as much fun as going to the dentist, thanks to long waits to be called and, more specifically, the crowded and sometimes noisy conditions in the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse’s waiting rooms.

Construction is scheduled to begin next spring on a $12 million apartment project in Ridgely’s Delight, now that Baltimore’s preservation commission has given final approval to the design.

Divine is finally legal.
Baltimore’s Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation voted unanimously on Tuesday to follow its staff’s recommendation and give “retroactive approval” to a three-story-high mural of the drag performer and actor that was painted last month on the side of a Mount Vernon row house without prior authorization.
The performer Divine played characters who ran afoul of the law in John Waters movies such as “Female Trouble” and “Multiple Maniacs.” Now, a mural that honors Divine is having its own brush with city rules and regulations.
