Restaurants band together for another Feastival to benefit Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Feastival takes place June 9 at Sandlot Baltimore.

Recently, Baltimore restaurant industry news has been a bit gloomy, with announcements of restaurants–even beloved ones–shutting their doors.

But not all Charm City restaurant news is bad these days. In early June, over a dozen locally owned restaurants will band together to host Baltimore’s third annual Feastival, a fun day of food, drinks and waterside revelry for a great cause: to raise money to fight cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that causes lung infections.

Top Stories: Stolen Tricycle Returned, Sandlot Already Mulling Expansion, 20-Year-Old Aaron Laciny Killed in Hit and Run

The most popular read this week concerned a well-known Hampdenite’s stolen tricycle. Lou Catelli/Will Bauer’s adult-sized, three-wheeled contraption went missing outside the Hampden Family Center on W. 36th Street late last month. Security camera footage showed the culprit: a man donning a neon safety vest who used a pair of bolt cutters to break the lock and take off with the trike.

For more than two weeks, the “Mayor” (or self-described “ambassador”) of Hampden worked with police and friends online to track it down. Pictures early on showed it near Mondawmin Mall.

Last Friday, Major Rich Gibson from the Baltimore Police Department’s Northern District ceremoniously returned Catelli’s trike, riding with two colleagues down to Old Bank Barbers in Hampden, where a small crowd was waiting. Catelli told Baltimore Fishbowl police arranged a drop-off with the suspect, whose identity hasn’t been released.

Catelli added that rather than wanting to see the perp punished, he’d rather offer him a job as a pedicab driver, since he had strong enough legs to move his trike across the city.

Here were Baltimore Fishbowl’s other most popular reads this week:
