We all love a good snack to pair with a cocktail or an ice-cold beer, but in the Phillipines these appetizers—called pulutan, derived from the root word “pulot,” which means to pick up—are part of the culture.

While Tums and Pepto Bismol may be among the most popular bellyache remedies found in modern American medicine cabinets, civilizations dating back millennia found their own herbal fixes for indigestion and other stomach problems through careful study (and lots of trial and error, surely).

R. House’s food hall setup is all about choice, and that is doubly true today when the Vintage & Handmade Market sets up shop. More than a dozen vendors and makers will be selling their wares, a group that includes the jewelry company Falling Branch Studio, the printmaker Beertanicals, vintage fashion purveyor Hemlock Vintage and the mixed-media artist Vanaadon Creations, just to name a few.

People were saddened to learn earlier this week that Parts & Labor, the Remington butchery and restaurant run by Spike Gjerde and Corey Polyoka, would be closing after dinner service on Aug. 5.

Well folks, the bar, at least, is going to stay open a little while longer, offering “beers & spirits aplenty,” a rep for Gjerde says. And there will be food, too.

You’d be right to get excited about this week’s announcement that R&B great Lauryn Hill is finally going on tour again to celebrate 20 years for “The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill”–and with a star-studded lineup of openers at that. Sadly, she’s skipping right over Baltimore this summer, but it’s still news that her fans can celebrate.
