George Marsh’s Heritage Smokehouse took a big step today toward operating as a full-service restaurant and tavern, when Baltimore;s liquor board approved its request for a seven-day liquor license at 5800 York Road, in Govans.
Maisy’s, a restaurant located in the heart of downtown known for brick oven pizzas and creative takes on classic American fare, will not reopen after coronavirus restrictions are lifted, owner Matt Helme posted on Facebook.
Michal Makarovich was one of the last merchants in Baltimore who regularly put elaborate displays in the front window of his store, but now he says those days are over.
Makarovich and associate Adrian Monaco created the final window display this week to signal that their business, Hampden Junque, is closing its physical storefront permanently and becoming an online shop.
The window contains a figure of Pee-wee Herman, the fictional character, all by himself, with none of the quirky merchandise from the store that usually surrounds him.
An enticing opportunity awaits. Contact Tracy Swindell for a personal tour.
Sunset Hill (1906), a gracious and spacious Ruxton estate on 6 protected acres, was originally built as a summer respite from the whirl of the city. An elegant home, the current owners have taken great care to maintain its cherished charm and outstanding craftsmanship, while bringing it securely into the 21st century with thoughtful renovations and lasting style. Live in quiet comfort or entertain lavishly – both equally possible. The main floor includes casual and formal living areas and a stunning gourmet kitchen with pantry, and is surrounded by a quintessential wrap around porch and sun room. 11’+ ceilings, oak floors with mahogany inlay, leaded glass windows and four wood burning fireplaces make for memorable spaces in which to live and thrive. Five bedrooms and a family room on the second floor include a serene master suite with sweeping views of the estate. The third floor offers 4 more bedrooms/bonus rooms – as you choose. A stately outbuilding in its own right, the former barn now serves as a six bay garage. Just a short stroll and you are slipping into the sparkling waters of the pool, complete with pool house.
Milk & Ice Vintage and Sturgis Antiques, two specialty stores that shared a space on The Avenue in Hampden, announced they will be closing their physical storefront and shift to online business and by-appointment studio visits.
The developer who agreed last year to explore restoring part of the historic Martick’s restaurant building in downtown’s west side now says he is not able to carry out his original plan because the public funds he was seeking never came through.
Developer Larry Jennings’ plan to convert Woodberry’s underutilized Tractor Building into 99 apartments cleared a key hurdle yesterday, when Baltimore’s preservation commission voted 6 to 2 to give the project concept approval.
The action by Baltimore’s Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP) brings Jennings and Valstone Partners one step closer to obtaining building permits for a redevelopment project that will result in an investment of $32 million to $35 million in Woodberry and help preserve much of the last large mill building at Clipper Mill that hasn’t been recycled for contemporary uses.
