And the award(s) go to ...

Don't Know Tavern!

Heh, just kidding.

But seriously folks, the top three Bars You Most Love to Hate are ...

1) Lagers

This one caught me by surprise. I expected an outpouring of hate for MaGerk's. But Lagers? Anyhow, they got six votes.

2) MaGerk's

Five votes.

3) Coburn's Tavern

Baltimoreans hate covers. That's no secret. Three votes. 

I'll start mailing stuff Tuesday.

actually bear with me. I would argue that the least amount with bad votes should get the books...because if you got the most votes...that actually meant people went there. I bet 3/4's of the city doesn't even know owl bar exists.

marketing 101.


Lagers deserves all the bad press it can get. That place is horrible. Not sure how it stays in business when always empty. Bartenders are tools and rude..great way to run a neighborhood bar.


Maybe the votes should be limited to places where people only went to once, which proved to be once too many.
You can't have an authentic or personal opinion if you never went there.
