The city liquor board voted yesterday to suspend the liquor license of Rootie Kazootie's, a Charles Village restaurant and pub, for 10 days as a result of police citations issued to minors for drinking violations. Liquor commissioners, however, opted last night not to act on a community petition, which listed complaints that the pub -- in the 2700 block of N. Charles St. -- was creating a nuisance in the neighborhood. The board said the allegations were not specific enough. In addition to the mandatory 10-day suspension, the owners of Rootie Kazootie's -- Vincent A. Arosemena and his son, Vincent Arosemena -- were given a choice of a 30-day liquor-license suspension or a $3,000 fine for the violations.

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.
