It isn't every day you get to see someone remembered in an obituary as a bartender and a saint, but for George Thompson the words apply. The Sun's obituary left out the "saint" part, but I can assure your readers that the description is entirely appropriate ("George F. Thompson," Dec. 20). For almost 30 years George served as a volunteer at Our Daily Bread. Taking the bus, usually two or three times a week, he brought a deep sense of doing for others as he chopped the salad, mixed the vegetables or did whatever else needed to be done.

Thanks to the ever-growing craft-cocktail movement, drinks made with fresh and regional ingredients, homemade syrups and quality artisanal spirits are showing up on menus throughout Baltimore. Using ingredients such as coffee-infused tequila, apple brandy and small-batch gin, local restaurants and bars are brimming with new cocktail offerings this fall. Some of the city's best mixologists shared the recipes for their signature libations, featuring belly-warming, spirit-forward flavor profiles just right for the cooler days of autumn.

B altimore is about to have a situation on its hands. Not just any situation. The Situation. The Situation is the nickname for one of the stars of MTV's infamous new reality TV show, "Jersey Shore." The 27-year-old from Staten Island has a real name - Mike Sorrentino - but that's inconsequential. What matters is, The Situation has six-pack abs so well-defined that he calls them "the situation" (hence, the nickname). Every opportunity he gets - at work, on magazine covers, on the dance floor - he lifts his shirt to show them off. Like the other guys on "Jersey Shore," The Situation is a self-declared guido's guido - with carefully gelled hair, perma-tanned skin and alpha-male attitude.

As in any major city, Baltimore and its bars benefit from a hot ticket. Whether it is the Orioles' opening day or a Justin Timberlake and Jay Z concert downtown, these events rarely fail to draw large crowds. In the process, many attendees find time to patronize bars in the neighborhoods they visit. In late February, it was easy to see similar stars aligning by the Hippodrome Theatre. As the multiple Tony Award-winning musical “The Book of Mormon” had a well-received 13-day run downtown, the Italian wine bar and restaurant Forno quietly opened around the same time.

Pop-up shops - businesses that open temporarily to present new concepts before hopefully graduating to a permanent location - make sense, especially in Baltimore. We can be a capricious group to impress, so a business that chooses to refine its execution on a small scale, rather than commit to a formidable lease too soon, is acting wisely. Opened by Phil Han of Dooby's last summer, the Hatch is a business incubator located in the lower-level space of the Park Plaza in Mount Vernon.

There should be no question that President Barack Obama gave a moving State of the Union speech ("Obama makes America proud," Jan. 30). There was even some humor when he said even a bartender's son could rise to become the Speaker of the House of Representatives. However, might I also point out that all that snow that was falling over Washington, D.C. was Mother Nature's way of informing us of the snow job we just heard! LeRoy R.

Close your eyes and imagine the Federal Hill bar scene late on a Saturday night. If hazy images of loud, crowded bars filled with pushy, drunken patrons fill your head, then you have likely experienced the madness first-hand. At around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Joey B's Bar and Grille was quiet, especially in comparison to its rowdier neighbors such as Mad River and Nobles. Besides our trio, there were a handful of other patrons who seemed to stop by only for a quick beer or shot before heading on their way. It would have been easy for the two bartenders behind Joey B's double-sided bar to stare at their phones or find other nonproductive ways to pass the time.

A couple of Friday nights ago, it was hard to find a place to comfortably stand in World of Beer, McHenry Row's newest bar. The beer emporium was celebrating its opening weekend, and the scene was what new owners dream of: wall-to-wall customers packed inside as an outdoor patio filled up simultaneously. A band played instantly recognizable songs on stage. There were at least 200 people on the premises. It was obvious that World of Beer, a national chain founded in 2007, appeared to be off to a great start at its first Baltimore location.

Early last month, Canton lost a charming bar called Adam's Eve Gastropub. It was not transcendent or life-altering, nor did it aim to be. Instead, Adam's Eve provided comfort food and craft beers for locals needing a break from the well-worn establishments of O'Donnell Square. So when the announcement came that Adam's Eve would become The Chasseur (pronounced SHA-sur), I hoped it would operate in a similar manner: without pretentions. On a recent Saturday afternoon visit, The Chasseur retained Adam's Eve's low-key atmosphere and emphasis on a quality bar program.
