There's not much better than downing an ice-cold beer on a hot summer day. But how about downing a really inexpensive ice-cold beer on a hot summer day? Yeah, that may be better. For our third annual survey, we again divided the city into four quadrants, called hundreds of Baltimore's biggest, posh-est, smallest and divey-est bars and asked for their best prices on bottles/cans, microbrews and happy hours. We're not against drafts, but we've eliminated that category this year because there wasn't much variation in price across the city.

When driving down Baltimore National Pike in Ellicott City, it's easy for eyes to wander. The myriad restaurants and shops all fight for attention with colorful signs and promises of limited-time deals. It's enough to give you a headache. But tucked away in the Enchanted Forest Shopping Center - behind the defunct theme park, around the corner from a grocery store and out of view from the pike - is a bar and restaurant that is clearly interested in providing an experience not typically expected at a strip mall.

The state's largest annual celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community moved this year from the heart of Mount Vernon farther north to the Mid-Town Belvedere neighborhood, which many people associate with Artscape. Alcohol consumption was confined to two "beer gardens" blocked off by fences.
