Whiskey Island Pirate and Rose's Cookies will be there as well as other vendors and local farmers selling organic produce.
And all the gardening supplies are natural/organic at the Center as well! So good, and good for you.

Open since 1990, Reptilian Records' building is for sale! But don't worry, they're just headed for greener pastures elsewhere.
Stikky Fingers, open since 1991, calls it quits!
And even the new darling Dangerously Delicious Pies is having their last event at their Fells Point location this weekend. They're also moving to a new undisclosed location.
And the Four Seasons breaks ground this Summer!

We love you all. Yes, even you. Ok, well, maybe not you.
For all of our customers with a Big Spender card, on May 6th, you'll get 10% off your purchases! Oh yeah, and it's also Free Comic Book day.
Here are some Heavy Metal Parking Lot ringtones.
So much love.

That's our Maggie. Skaters were bouncing off her like they were hitting a brick wall.
It's been months and months of dedicated men and women skating and planning and hashing out this new Roller Derby League and it was an awesome first exhibition bout with a sell out crowd.
It was a TON of fun.
Don't miss the next bouts in May and June!

A new boutique just opened up right off the Avenue on Falls Rd (in the old EIEIO location for you Hampdenites, 3616 Falls Road for the rest of you), called doubledutch Boutique.
Leslie and Megan, the co-owners, have done a very purty job.
Trivia: Megan is married to that Brian Ralph dude.

It seems that the cigarette package (which you can't see on our site, and which has now already been replaced by completely different faux cigarettes by the good people at Archie McPhee) is too similar to a brand of theirs and they don't want to be associated with smoking babies!
No, really, they don't.
UPDATE: Looks like they're hitting a bunch of people with the same letter. Someone's busy googling at Big Tobacco!

They are a video store. We are a book store. No one expects us to win. But if we do, sweet.
Here's the team:
Scott Sugiuchi (our poster/design guy)
Davida Breier (zine reviewer for the site & ex-employee)
Neil Eber (on our label for his now DEFUNCT band, Chester Stacey. He's got some new band called Power Walker. But they refuse to play out. WEIRDO.)
That Benn Ray
I'm team captain! I'm off the hook! Hahahahahahaha!

Honfest is in June.
Hampdenfest is in September.
We don't have anything to do with the organizing of Honfest. DO NOT CALL US.
Here's a handy schedule of the coming Festival Season IN ORDER (a lot of festivals have changed weekends this year! This may be the first time you could actually do them all):
April The Intertribal Powwow
May The Sheep & Wool Festival
May The Maryland Film Festival
May SoWeBo Festival
August Horrorfind Weekend
September Baltimore Comic Con
September Baltimore Book Festival
September (usually) High Zero Festival
October Small Press Expo
This is not a complete list by any means. Every neighborhood/school/block in this town has its own festival. There's a happening every night of the week.
