While the praise for Baltimore has been pouring in recently, this week the local love got shipped out. Baltimore in a Box started offering up care packages for all those far-flung lovers of Old Bay and Big Boyz Bail Bonds pens.

A possible outgrowth of the city’s growing cache also reared its head in the form of a list that said it was more expensive to live in Baltimore than L.A. But the Orioles lost to the Royals, and Jarrod Dyson rubbed it in with a few choice words. So, the underdog spirit remains alive and well.
The underbelly came to the surface at a number of local eateries, as the Rita’s Italian Ice in Fells Point was exposed as a cocaine ring’s front, and Amy Langrehr tracked down where the cast of House of Cards eats while they’re in town.
Real estate wasn’t involved in the sordid stuff this time. Instead, we’ll take this time to spotlight the Hot House of the Week: The former Mt. Saint Agnes Theological Center for Women on Poplar Hill Rd.
