Here's the part where you tell me how wrong (or how right!) I was on a review. This week's bar review is about The Feisty Goat on Key Highway, which opened in August. From the review: The "Feisty Goat is an agreeable sports bar, adequate for sports fans looking for a no-frills atmosphere to watch a game. But, it could use some improvements in service, atmosphere and variety. " The rest of the review is here . Is it fair? Have you been to the Feisty Goat and pet its namesake, which hangs above the cash register?

A fortress of tony condominiums and townhouses now stands on the grounds of the old Bethlehem Steel shipyard at the base of Federal Hill. The city's Fire Department Repair Facility down the road is slated to be sold for more waterfront residential development. And cargo vessels long ago gave way to the pleasure boats that now dock at the Baltimore Museum of Industry's adjoining sailing school. The Lynch brothers, owners of General Ship Repair Corp., see the writing on the wall. One of the few remaining industrial outfits on Key Highway's Inner Harbor rim, the fourth-generation family business is eyeing a move to Canton after nearly 80 years at its present location.

For years, South Baltimore residents have thought a key piece of city property on the Inner Harbor was destined to become yet another high-rise, blocking even more of their shrinking view of the water. But Mayor Sheila Dixon is changing course, saying that the site will become much-needed waterfront parkland. The decision ends a plan announced by city officials more than two years ago to offer developers the city Fire Department's repair facility on Key Highway - a plan that set off alarm bells in a community increasingly separated from the harbor by squat townhouses and condominiums.

Architect Paul Marks has probably worked on the design of more buildings along Baltimore's Key Highway corridor than anyone else in town. His projects have included the HarborView pier homes, the Ritz Carlton Residences, the Lutheran Center and his own home overlooking the harbor. Based on the sheer volume of work alone, one might call him the King of Key Highway. So it should come as no surprise that the design firm Marks founded in 1967 now has offices along Key Highway as well - in the old "King Syrup" building, no less.

When Olympic beach volleyball came to Key Highway this year, the NBC cameras panned west toward the Inner Harbor and east toward Fells Point. But they never faced south to capture the highway's grit: old waterfront warehouses, office buildings and torn-up road.To a number of entrepreneurs, developers and museum executives, though, the 83-year-old industrial highway is downright eye-catching. In the 10-block stretch between Covington and Lawrence streets, they see the possibility of a Gold Coast of restaurants, bars and stores.

WHEN BALTIMORE'S American Visionary Art Museum first opened in November 1995, it was the nation's first permanent exhibit venue devoted exclusively to ''outsider'' art. People have flocked to view works by self-taught artists, making the Visionary Art Museum a popular Inner Harbor destination.The privately operated museum along Key Highway now faces a new challenge. It has won exclusive negotiating rights from the Baltimore Development Corp. to redevelop an abandoned five-story whiskey-barrel warehouse next door.
