It's taken nearly two years for this exceptional Jones Falls Valley industrial landmark to take its bows. The first wave of tenants moved in earlier this year; Evergreen Health is the first large commercial tenant.

Baltimore City Council members Mary Part Clarke and Nick Mosby Clarke have scheduled a public meeting for Sept. 12, at 6 p.m., at the Hampden Family Center, 1104 West 36th St., to discuss the clinic.

A guy walks into a sports bar in Hampden and … wait, back up, back up. A bar catering to a bunch of jocks located in Hipsterville, Maryland? Yes, really. This isn't the punch line to a bad Baltimore joke. This is David's 1st and 10 Sports Bar on Falls Road, the newest - it opened May 7 - spot on the North Baltimore scene.

Take last Tuesday when bar manager Bayne Joyes was pouring drafts and shooting the breeze with customers.
