snl parodySince SNL’s rearrangement of The Wire worked so well, we decided to reformat your recap of the week’s top stories. It’s the Week in Review for Jan. 16-23, in neatly organized list form:

SNL continued their winning streak by reimagining The Wire in gentrified Brooklyn. Clearly the thing they were lacking all those years was Baltimore.

Want to dream? This Roland Park house looks like a castle, and it’s on the market.

The O’Malleys did their part for North Baltimore real estate by taking  one house off the market.

The party is in Iceland. WOW Air is starting their cheap flights to the Scandinavian country sooner than expected, and they’ll be flying there all year.

The Hampden dining scene’s hot streak continues. Aromes brings French cuisine to the neighborhood.

Even the Unitas family is getting into the scene by way of Grand Cru Wine Bar.

Canton is trying to keep up. From Venezuelan to BBQ, there’s a handful of new restaurants coming to Southeast Baltimore. With the owner of Sip & Bite caught up in a cocaine sting, a little new blood won’t hurt.

Terri Steel has one of the best sentence pairings anywhere this week: “Sheila, Shirley and I enjoyed being the cookie, or at least that’s what I believed.I never considered that perhaps it was because of my position in the shiny white center.”

Serial is still in the news. The key witness from Episode 1 changed her story — again. This time, she could end up in court.

Larry Hogan took one day to party for his inauguration, then arrived at the office the next day and pissed everybody off. Welcome to life under a Republican governor, Maryland.
