Top Stories: The Sandlot Opens at Harbor Point, A Creative Take on a Wedding Itinerary, Woodberry Flip for $417K

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.”

One of Baltimore’s venerable names will be reappearing in town this fall. He never truly left, but a business deal forced him to go by someone else’s name for a while.
