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. But as is typical in the land of the Hons, David's marches to the beat of its own quirky drum. Take last Tuesday when bar manager Bayne Joyes was pouring drafts and shooting the breeze with customers.

If you decide to ride this month's Bike Party (5 p.m. Friday at the Baltimore Streetcar Museum, 1901 Falls Road), there are a few items you shouldn't forget to bring. Volunteer coordinator Adam Hull has been helping organize the ride almost since the start and suggests the following: • A spare tire tube, levers and a small wrench. "We ask people to bring those in case you have a flat tire," says Hull. "Even if you're not able to repair your own tire, someone can hopefully help - but they need to have the tools to do it. " If your mechanical problem is too big to fix during the ride, there are usually volunteer Zipcar vehicles following along in back to pick up stranded riders and their bikes.

A shave and a haircut of yesteryear cost the proverbial two bits, 25 cents. A shave alone at The Old Bank Barbers, a soon-to-open barber shop on The Avenue in Hampden, will cost $25. It won't be any old shave, though. Owner Daniel Wells promises an old-fashioned, full-face, straight-edge shave, complete with hot lather, in a leather chair with a headrest that leans back. "It's an old-school barber shop with the tile floors," said Wells, who hopes to open this month at 1100 W. 36th St., the former site of Sixteen Tons, a men's clothing store.

Standing amid his $44 million refurbished textile mill, now nearing completion, developer and one-time mayoral candidate David Tufaro observed a bird wading in the Jones Falls nearby. "That's our great blue heron," Tufaro said. Water birds fly up and down the Jones Falls between the two sides of the mill, which straddles the stream. So he insisted that an image of one be included on the rooftop sign that faces Interstate 83, announcing the presence of the commercial-residential complex called Mill No. 1. When residents begin moving into the converted mill early next month, the valley between the Baltimore neighborhoods of Woodberry and Hampden will shift from being a predominantly industrial area to being an extension of the surrounding neighborhoods.

The Roosevelt Park Recreation Center reopened Wednesday after being closed for about a month because of a broke water pipe. "I missed it," said Gabrielle Barnes, 10, a third grader from Hampden Elementary/Middle School. She was one of 14 children who returned to the center for after-school enrichment activities. Usually, that number is about 25, but some families might not have gotten the message yet that the center was reopen, director Joshua Fissel said. The pipe was repaired at a cost of $10,000, said Kia McLeod, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks.

Spring is a time for new beginnings, and that includes new hobbies. As the air gets warmer and the days last longer, it's the perfect time to try out a new outdoor sport. The Baltimore region offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor fun, from biking to paddleboarding. Thanks to local retailers that rent sporting equipment, budding outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen can try out new hobbies without investing too much money. Gary Weeden, of Annapolis boat and bike rental shop Paddle or Pedal, likens renting to test-driving a car. "Before you spend your money, this is a great way to try things out. Like with cars: Before you buy, rent and say, 'This is what I like and don't like.' " "If someone hasn't been on a bicycle for a while, and they're not sure of the type of bike they'll want to purchase, we offer several types they can try out at low cost," adds Jim White of Monkton Bikes.
