For 15 years, the Slaughter Across the Water cast shame on Annapolis. The city regularly lost the annual tug-of-war match over the harbor to its Eastport rivals. The Annapolis team has had to recruit last-minute tuggers from bar stools and bathrooms. Worse, apathy has forced the team to rely on volunteers from the opposing Maritime Republic of Eastport, the same rascals who have stolen the flag from City Hall and "kidnapped" its mayor. "From what I heard, they had to bribe people with beer to come to the Annapolis side last year," said Marie Dall'Acqua, an organizer with the city's Take-Back-The-Tug campaign.

There is something awesomely South Baltimore about going to an Australian-themed pub covered in Formstone. The pub, called Billabong Bar, had a soft opening a couple of weeks ago and is still coming together. It's the brainchild of operating manager Jorbie Clark, who worked at the old Boomerang Pub, which is now Mad River. Billabong opened in a corner building that used to house a low-key party spot called Turner's. The walls inside the long, narrow Billabong are bright yellow. A series of generic posters ("My goodness, my Guinness," etc.)

Dinner and drinks at the airport, even when you don't have a flight to catch? That might not be as crazy as it sounds. Sky Azure, a small cocktail and tapas lounge in the new observation gallery at BWI Airport, has potential as a fun lunch or happy hour spot for anyone in the airport area - even if you don't need to keep an eye on gate assignments. With a brief, but appealing selection of seasonally driven small plates and friendly, efficient service, Sky Azure raises the bar on the airport dining experience.

Over the past five years, the west side of downtown has been one of the city's most unforgiving neighborhoods for new bars. They open and close here as quickly as it takes 8.9 percent alcohol to slip into your bloodstream. Alewife, the new beer hall at Eutaw and Fayette streets, is hoping to turn the trend on its head with sheer size and suds selection. Billed as a high-end beer hall, the Daniel Lanigan-owned bar boasts of having a sprawling beer list — 40 on tap and 100 bottled varieties.

FOR DECADES, the corner saloon inside Baltimore's House of Welsh was the classic stag bar -- men only. Small and dimly lighted, it didn't even have bar stools because its patrons were just as happy to stand. "Women patrons would put a damper on the men-talk," owner Thomas Welsh groused to a reporter in 1970. "The bar provides some place where men can hide." The bar finally was forced to admit women in the early 1970s, after a federal judge in New York ruled that it was illegal for bars to keep out female patrons.

The question in Federal Hill these days: How many bars is one too many? The booming district around Cross Street Market has added an average of 127 bar stools each year for the past decade despite a state law aimed at limiting new liquor establishments. A proposed 300-seat beer garden has pushed some residents from frustration to outrage over the thought of more drunken revelers slopping into their streets. "We've reached a critical mass of drinkers," said Eric Costello, president of the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association.
