Michael Mastellone was standing on a noisy street corner in New York City when the idea for a new bar - strapped across the top of an SUV - passed before his eyes. "MAD RIVER," read the manufacturer's name on the side of an upside-down canoe. With that, Mastellone, 25 at the time, began planning the Mad River Bar & Grille, which opened six years ago on New York's Upper East Side. Four years later, he opened a second branch of the river-themed bar in Albany. And last week beer officially began to flow at Mad River's newest location in Baltimore.

You may tune into The Big Chee Show for the insightful sports analysis and interviews with athletes, but you should really stick around for the bro chat. Sprinkled in every weekly broadcast (5-6 p.m. Fridays, ESPN 1300), host and Federal Hill resident Chris Cichon (The Big Chee, a nickname derived from the pronunciation of his last name, "Chee-on") and his bro crew talk everything from Baltimore bro bars to bro hairstyles. "[The show's for] bros like myself who like watching sports while having a cold one with their fellow bros.

Here's the scene across the street from the Mad River Bar & Grille on Baltimore's South Charles Street: One young guy stomping after another young guy, arms flailing, challenging a fight, his friends trying to hold him back, the girls shouting. "That guy just came up and threw a punch at them," one says. "He hit that girl," says another. Officer Matt J. Dzambo breaks up the fracas, stopping one group while letting the other walk up the street. "Don't let it ruin your night," the officer says.

Baltimore is about to have a situation on its hands. Not just any situation. The Situation. The Situation is the nickname for one of the stars of MTV's infamous new reality TV show, "Jersey Shore." The 27-year-old from Staten Island has a real name - Mike Sorrentino - but that's inconsequential. What matters is, The Situation has six-pack abs so well-defined that he calls them "the situation" (hence, the nickname). Every opportunity he gets - at work, on magazine covers, on the dance floor - he lifts his shirt to show them off. Like the other guys on "Jersey Shore," The Situation is a self-declared guido's guido - with carefully gelled hair, perma-tanned skin and alpha-male attitude.

Outdoorsy sorts may find a new Federal Hill spot is just the place to hang when they can't get out of the city. The Mad River Bar & Grille is having its grand opening today in the space that used to be known as the Boomerang Pub. John Durkin - who owns the eatery with Michael Mastellone and Eric Tucker - says the concept recalls Vermont's Mad River Glen area. So you'll find a "warm, outdoorsy feel indoors" featuring hardwood floors, dark reds and greens on the walls - along with canoes, kayaks, fly fishing rods and photos of Vermont landscapes.

Mad River, the bar and restaurant, is named for Vermont's Mad River Valley, a rough and tumble mecca for skiing, white-water rafting and other outdoor activities. Maybe you've seen the "Ski it if you can" bumper stickers for Mad River Glen on the bumper of a beat-up Volvo near you. Of course, the restaurant, in the heart of urban Federal Hill, has nothing to do with sports or the great outdoors. Its other two locations are in Manhattan and Albany, N.Y., also far from mountains and rushing rivers.
