Nerd Food: Flying Dog Bleacher Beer is Summer in a Can

Nothing screams summer more than baseball in July — especially if you can spend the afternoon or evening at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, like I recently did.

Nerd Food: Natty Boh’s Crab Shack Shandy

Let me fill you in on a secret (that I think everyone knows): I love National Bohemian Beer. I have Mr. Boh — the winking mascot — tattooed on my arm. So when Pabst Blue Ribbon, the parent company of National Bohemian, released a new Natty Boh flavor, I knew what I had to do! […]

Nerd Food: Dining In Character At Paper Moon Diner

Paper Moon Diner–located on 227 West 28th Street in Baltimore, MD–is a local favorite. I’ve been going to this place for years, and the food had remained consistently great for years.
