New restaurant to replace Banjara


Midnight Sun Sam has the latest on the restaurant that will replace Banjara at 1015-1019 S. Charles St. He's busy right now doing Important Editing Chores (Sam has returned to the Sun from his wedding as a "content editor") so I thought I would help him out by getting in touch with the liquor board to find out more.

It wasn't much. The license was transferred on May 7, and the contact person is Clark Hudak. But the number he gave the liquor board rings endlessly and no one picks up.

Sounds like a job for Tess Monaghan.

Oh Sessa! Their you are! Have you bin hiding from me yuo sluethy charcter!? Being around the town in yujor whiote dungarees!

Sam is a content editor? Are there discontent editors?

The opposite of content editor would be disgruntled editor.

Banjara was the best place for an "Indian" buffet lunch when I was working in Baltimore.

It was still great after I moved west and returned to South Baltimore to explore the yuminess of the of the fare of the area.

I bet there are discontent editors, but they don't dare say anything because they know they'll be laid off first.

So there are gruntled editors? I assume thye are greenhorns like Sammy

Actually he's better than a lot of older editors I've worked with. EL

My guess is that if you're an editor and you're over 30 you get sent to a re-education camp. Canning experienced editors in favor, no offense, of someone probably under 25 is about money. How soon before the Sun just becomes a version of "B" called "BS"?

Isn't the content editor the one who decides that wine-dark sea should really be dark-as-wine sea?

That isn't content, Laura Lee, that is literary assault with intent.

Laura Lee - now you are just stirring the pot. ;)

I love that anyone still knows about my wine-dark sea sickness.

Owlie, dude, the Muse was just singing about that the other day.

i miss banjara a lot. until they took their sign down, my wife and i used to drive by to see if they might re-open. The night we tried to go to dinner and found it closed was a sad one. Indian food (like booze) is a great relief after a yoga class!

A relief after yoga class? Isn't yoga class supposed to be relieving?

Isn't yoga class supposed to be relieving?

Oh, Sam, I thought that, too. Turns out, yoga teaches one to focus the mind and ignore pain and discomfort.

This is good news. Banjera always looked a little too shady on the outside. I hope something good replaces it.

Donny B,

When you say it "looked a little too shady" I presume you're referring to the large yellow awnings on the front windows?

Uh oh

adam m, maybe you should try a different yoga class!
