Green Cilantro is back to being the Whistling Oyster

The more things change ...

Green Cilantro, the Fells Point Bar which replaced the Whistling Oyster has itself been replaced ... by the Whistling Oyster. Shame. I'll miss those cilantro martinis.

Being out of the country for the past couple weeks, I'm not sure when this happened. I noticed the change a few days ago. I called Green Cilantro's number but it kept ringing. If anyone knows more, e-mail me at

I know nothing about this, but changing the name from "Green Cilantro" to "Whistling Oyster" is a win for Baltimore and anybody who thinks oysters doing human stuff is really funny.

Cilantro Martinis? What were they out of Cosmos? Dead lord...

As I'm waiting for The Pizza That Will Never Arrive....

Green Cilantro is a dumb name. Cilantro is always green. XTREEEM Cilantro is something to write home about. The Whistling Oyster is an okay name ... for a place that went out of business once. Might I suggest the Bivalve Arts & Entertainment Center? Or The Yodeling Oyster? Step it up. Or the Cilantro Oyster? Nah.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that the Whistling Oyster brings to mind a part of the human anatomy? Coincidence? Hmmmm.

Jen, if yours can whistle you should go on the road.

Better the Whistling Oyster then the Queefing Clam.
