At the ripe old age of 6, and with a new, more spacious home, Golden West is the same nonconformist teen-ager it always was. Like other restaurants on The Avenue, Golden West caters to a mostly young, mostly local crowd. And like other Hampden restaurants, including Holy Frijoles and Cafe Hon, to name a couple, it has elevated its brand of Baltimore quirkiness to an art form. At Golden West, that means an eclectic, inexpensive menu, mismatched linoleum-topped tables, a seating area in the front with overstuffed couches, a colorful mix of artwork on the walls and servers in oddball attire.

For more than a decade, Golden West Cafe has been slingin' Southwest cuisine to the denizens of Hampden and beyond, in addition to live music, comedy shows and a solid bar in the back. Primarily a whiskey bar, Golden West's cocktail list displayed on a regularly changing rotation always showcases the brown stuff, and more often than not with a Southwest twist. Bartender Charlie Long and company are ready to debut a new set of whiskey based cocktails, one of the punchiest of the lot being the Killer Bee. Despite the ominous sounding name, the Killer Bee is designed to be "a bit lighter for the spring and summer," according to Long.

Get Arbouretum frontman Dave Heumann started on certain topics - such as maximizing the sound quality of vinyl, fictitious narrators in songwriting, photography - and expect long-winding exchanges full of ideas and anecdotes. But ask the 40-year-old Roland Park musician why he started playing music in the first place and the answer is uncharacteristically succinct. "You start a band and you get to play guitar solos for as long as you want," Heumann said from a corner of a coffeeshop late last month.

Looking for an interesting sampler of Baltimore hip-hop? Try the all-local rap show at Golden West Cafe on Saturday night.

But don't let his backstory overshadow the fact that DDm is a rapper first and foremost. His latest project, "Winter and the Tinman's Heart," is available for download here .

Watch the video for Frankie Rose's "Gospel/Grace" above. When Brooklyn, N.Y.'s Frankie Rose - who plays Golden West Cafe on Saturday - released her first album, "Frankie Rose and the Outs," back in 2010, it fell in line with the reverb-heavy indie-pop she had made her old band, Vivian Girls. In February, less than two years after her first album, Rose returned with a second album and an updated sound. The appropriately titled "Interstellar," released in February, shimmers in space. These are still pop songs, just as they've always been, but there's a new, serious confidence to the execution.

When the Baltimore Comedy Factory has its official grand opening later this spring, it will be the only stand-alone comedy club left in the city. But lovers of stand-up shouldn't fret. Outside the city, there are a few clubs — Magooby's in Timonium and Sully's Comedy Cellar in Parkville — but if you don't want to drive out there for a few laughs, there are options in the city. What Baltimore lacks in comedy clubs, it makes up for in comedy nights. Starting Tuesday, there will even be a new one downtown.

It's been eight years now since Thomas Rudis moved his Golden West Cafe from its original storefront operation into its current home on The Avenue in Hampden. It continues to flourish, and if Hampden is a town, Golden West is its town hall. Along with its neighbors, Holy Frijoles and Cafe Hon , Golden West deserves credit for helping to establish Hampden as a dining and drinking destination. All three restaurants, and many of their successors, have been accused of trafficking in kitsch and whimsy, but from the start Rudis seemed serious about its menu, the core of which is inspired by the cuisines of New Mexico.
