Your choices for best Baltimore bars

 bestbars.jpeg

Midnight Sun asked earlier this week your thoughts on the town's best bars, and you answered in force. Sometimes, too much. People must really love Rodos, or they must have one crack team of flacks. Also popular with commenters: Max's, Brewer's Art, and Looney's

The official list will be out next week.

can you post updates about the fells point fun festival? or is that not night lifeish enough? I was curious to know whether all this rain is causing any issues from flooding or anything of the sort

thanks

good question scott.

There is no flooding. Wind swept the place dry.

thanks Heather!

Erik, you have to realize that anytime you open up the boards for "favorites" you're going to get plenty of people decrying anyone professing appreciation of a locale as a shill/flack. Though I have to admit that the outpouring of love for Rodos in the comments to the initial post as a bit much. The wordle is worth posterizing, however. Nice work.

Love the wordle thing.Just for fun, Erik, you should make one for all the mean comments Baltimorons have lobbed at you. Then burn some sage and do a Klingon yell.

I've never met anyone who actually likes rodos

Rodos? Lots of people like Rodos: underage girls from Dundalk, unemployed Greek sailors, you know, lots of people.

Rodos is the moped of Fells Point.

In no particular order

Gecko's
Waterfront
One-Eyed Mikes
The Landing Strip
Swallow at the Hollow
Brewer's Art
Birds of a Feather
Cross St. Market (you can get beer there)
Grand Cru
Dead End
Mahaffey's (SP?)
Nacho Mama's
Mama's on the 1/2 shell
Jerry's Belvedere
Club Charles
PJs
Dizz

Fraziers on the Ave.

Cheap beer, good food, great staff.

My favorite.
