It is still an exciting time for Baltimore's continually progressive nightlife scene. Successful openings debut as fully realized visions from Day 1, leading to exciting additions to an already healthy environment. If you enjoy a drink in public, chances are you have at least a few spots in the city you call your own. Face it - we have it good here today. For evidence, there's Beatnik, the Crown, the Other Corner Charcuterie Bar, WC Harlan, Smaltimore and Oliver Speck's, which all opened in the past year, and all impress in nuanced ways, depending on your mood.

Almost a century after it opened on Washington Street in Fells Point, Ostrowski's Famous Polish Sausage store has been sold. But if things go the way the new owner hopes, hardly anyone will notice the difference. John Reusing, who also owns Bad Decisions, an adjacent bar, said the 94-year-old sausage shop's reputation helped business when he opened next door. So, with the exception of extending the shop's hours, he's not planning to make any changes to the storefront or recipes.

I was not prepared for the sheer candlepower of Harbor East when I went in search of some early Christmas spirit this week. Moving along Albemarle Street, where the holiday lights burned hot and bright, I made some mental comparisons with the old Howard Street and its department stores. Hands down, Harbor East outperformed the staid department stores. The place had a nighttime energy - and the circle at President Street reminded me of a kind of Times Square bustle. The traffic was maddening but there was no getting away from the reality that this part of downtown Baltimore is an authentic December destination.

Before his disappearance touched off a regional manhunt and his body was recovered from the waters off Fells Point, Evan Curbeam had been a standout in the Air National Guard. Last year, he appeared in a recruitment video. This year he was named Airman of the Year for his unit. "I always saw him racing through the ranks, especially doing it full time," said Air National Guard member Jason Harden of Elgin, Ill. "You could tell in his eyes he was hungry for it. " Curbeam, 29, of Rosedale was found dead in the harbor the day before Thanksgiving, ending what friends and family said was a promising career and leaving a 4-year-old daughter fatherless.

We really should have known better. Last Friday night, a friend and I strolled into Thames Street Oyster House, the Fells Point restaurant that has served the most delicious seafood in the neighborhood since opening in July 2011, without a reservation. What were we thinking? It was just before 8 p.m., and the first floor was buzzing with dinner dates and anxious diners waiting for prized tables to open. Upstairs was booked for the night, so the downstairs bar area was our only option, according to our smiling hostess.
