A development group backed by Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank could breathe new life into a stalled plan to transform the landmark and long-vacant Recreation Pier in Fells Point into a luxury hotel. A representative of Sagamore Development LLC presented plans for a 128-room hotel with a restaurant and a pool during Wednesday's annual meeting of the Fells Point Main Street organization, according to people who attended the meeting. Built in 1914, the Recreation Pier originally stored port cargo.

I ♥ apples, but it's pretty difficult to find a drink that incorporates the fruit well. (In other words, doesn't make it taste like a disgusting Jolly Rancher-infused swill of sugar.) So it's a bit of a surprise that I've managed to find one now, in the dead of winter, and at Riptide by the Bay in Fells Point, of all places. Actually, the laid-back bar, known more for crab deals in the summer, has a pretty nice cocktail program going on. And its Hot Spiked Homemade Apple Cider ranks high on the list.

We almost missed all of the fun. On a recent Saturday night, a friend and I sat idly at the main upstairs bar at Anastasia, the Italian restaurant by Kali's Restaurant Group that replaced Meli in Fells Point last month. There were 20 or so patrons, fragmented into smaller groups, scattered between our area and a second bar by the entrance. An annual Fells Point bar crawl was winding down, and the neighborhood's energy level - noticeably depleted after 12 hours of raging - permeated here, too. After a Heineken ($6)

More than 300 homes and businesses were without water in the Fells Point area Wednesday night after crews were forced to shut off service to repair a ruptured water line. Water service was restored early Thursday morning, according to the Baltimore Department of Public Works, but officials warned that low water pressure would last for hours. Workers shut down the 16-inch water main in order to make repairs to a 6-inch water line that broke in a vacant building in the 500 block of S. Broadway Tuesday night, according to DPW. A five-alarm fire that took hours to extinguish seriously damaged the same building in 2012.

City officials formally approved agreements Wednesday with the developer of the $1.8 billion Harbor Point project over the protests of Comptroller Joan M. Pratt. The Board of Estimates approval, which was expected, will allow the city to eventually issue $107 million in bonds that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and other proponents say are necessary to help finance the improvements. Pratt said she's eager for the development — the future home of Exelon Corp.'s regional headquarters, 900 apartments, stores, a hotel and five parks between Harbor East and Fells Point — but wanted the city to have more assurance that taxpayers would receive a return on their investment.

Residents of the Fells Prospect neighborhood have long grumbled about abandoned dog feces in their sidewalk tree pits. But when a recent community association newsletter advised members to, among other things, place pine cones or clippings from thorny plants in the pits to keep dogs out, some property owners saw red and said the suggestions were both harmful to pets and illegal. John Lam, a dog owner who's lived in the neighborhood -- which is near Fells Point and Butchers Hill -- for three years, said the association's January newsletter “made a point that a tremendous amount of people aren't picking up after their pets.
