New Shops and Restaurants are Open at Canton Crossing


Canton Crossing

catch of the day fish (2)It’s finally here. For those who’ve kept an eye on the large Canton Crossing project, you can now go forth and shop (and dine!), since the first crop of stores are now open for business. While many of the stores that have opened at Canton Crossing are national chains like Old Navy, Target and Five Below that need no introduction, we’re excited that many of the dining establishments at the Crossing (are we allowed to just start calling it that?) are true local favorites—like Samos, Atwater’s and Mission BBQ. 

Craving Gourmet Bargains? Baltimore Restaurant Week’s Upon Us!


For those of you who have started to sing the blues (or bang your flatware) because Baltimore County Restaurant Week is coming to an end this Saturday, January 21, sing those tunes no more, for Winter Restaurant Week is coming. Starting today, January 20, and ending next Sunday, January 29, some of Baltimore’s favorite restaurants are sharing their food at prices even I, a poor college student, can afford. Over 70 restaurants are participating this winter, including the renowned Cinghiale and The Capital Grille, and a (controversial) Baltimore staple, Café Hon. Three-course pre-set menus are offered at $20.12 or, with wine, $30.12. More than 40 restaurants are even offering two-course pre-set lunch menus for $15.12. If these low prices are not incentive enough, the organization is hosting a “Lunch on Us” sweepstakes this year: Each day, a lucky contestant’s awarded a $25 gift certificate. To enter and grab more information, go to the Baltimore Restaurant Week Facebook page; also visit the website. See you there. Happy eating!
