Baltimore's top 50 bars: Dionysus, Charles Village Pub, Ale Mary's among 40-31

Ale Mary's, Charles Village Pub, and Dionysus are just three of the bars that made it to the next installment of our top 50 Baltimore bars list.

Ale Mary's made it to the list at 33 because it's one of the Fells Point bars with most character. And that's some tough competition. But it's probably the only bar in the neighborhood that has more Sacred Hearts outside of a convent.

Last week, it was featured in Midnight Sun's story on Franken-bars.

The rest of the 40-31 section went online earlier today, and can be found here. The next chunks will be posted over the next three days. 

And no, commenters, Brewer's Art is not top dog.

Way to give anyway the ending!

I'll start.


Cue the commenters: "Yeah its not that great of a bar, really, its so not cool anymore because everyone goes there. GO Rodos!"

This list has been created to boost hits and comments, and being controversial is the best way to do this. Who wants to comment on an accurate/boring list anyway? Way more fun if we yell at the Sun for being wrong, right?!
