Beers & Spears — that’s local brew and pickles — at Trohv


Trohv in Hampden, Baltimore

Walking by Trohv’s famous window displays (named “Best of Baltimore” by the City Paper), it’s easy to speculate about how supernaturally hip and artsy the brains behind this place must be. But once you step inside, every item on display makes a perfectly-furnished life seem surprisingly attainable. They’re onto something at Trohv—something unquestionably cool and classic but without any kind of pretension. Case in point: this Sunday, rather than inviting us all over for wine and cheese (not that we’d decline), Trohv will be hosting “Beers & Spears,” a special event during which you can shop the store while sampling locally made pickles from Gordy’s Pickle Jar and craft beer from Union Craft Brewing (located just up the road in Woodberry).

Trohv stocks Gordy’s pickles regularly, but for this event they’ve ordered specially etched commemorative mason jars available for purchase on Sunday. You can call ahead to reserve your limited edition jar ($10), or simply show up and cross your fingers that there’s one left. And as though the folks at Trohv needed to prove any further how cool they are, ten percent of all sales on Sunday will be donated to Blue Water Baltimore.

Trohv is located at 921 W. 36th Street, Baltimore. Beers & Spears takes place Sunday, September 9th from 12pm-3pm. To reserve a limited edition etched jar, call: 410-366-3456.

Introducing E.N. Olivier


When you see the digital fish, you’ll know it’s a Catch of the Day!

It’s hard to keep a secret in this town—especially when it’s a good one, and especially when it involves the epicurean arts. And when it comes to out-foodie-ing your foodiest friends (and aren’t we all trying just a little bit?) you’ve got to have a trick up your sleeve.

Might we suggest that before hosting your next dinner party that you make the trek to E.N. Olivier?  It’s a brand new (July 2012) food boutique that “cordially invites you to experience the finest flavors of the highest quality olive oils, vinegars and artisan pantry products.”
