Fab Five Friday
In hindsight, I probably should have broken down this week's Fab Five Friday: Best Bars of the 'Burbs' into three or four FFFs by county.
But here at Midnight Sun, we've never played by the rules.
So, using your ideas, I compiled the five best suburban bars in Greater Baltimore.
Here goes ...
1. Shark's Tooth Bar and Grill, 6-10 Crain Highway, Glen Burnie
From TotalVicky: They literally have a shark's head coming out of the front of the building. Much like its counterparts inside the city limits further north up route 2 (your neck of the woods) you will always find an eclectic crowd ranging from toothless old men to Towson State students. Its a funny spot to visit.
2. Della Rose's, 8153 Honeygo Blvd., White Marsh (pictured)
From David Sturgill: The best place to watch the ravens or terps (Tony Dellarose himself on the bar with his speeches).
3. Pub Dog, 8865 Stanford Blvd., Columbia
Yes, the Dog Pub in Federal Hill has been retired from FFF lists. But I can still rank its sister location in Columbia. Sneaky, huh? Besides, it's one of the only non-chain bars in Columbia.
4. Padonia Station, 63 E. Padonia Road, Timonium
5. The Charred Rib, 12 W. Ridgley Road, Lutherville
According to Allan: If you're up towards Cockeysville/Timonium, then the Chared Rib is your best bet. ... Also, if it's a pay Friday, you might as well get sauced, sing karaoke and eat a rack of amazing ribs at the Chared Rib. You really can't beat it.(Photo by Algerina Perna/Sun Photographer)
