I'm sure some folks see The Shops at Canton Crossing, the glitzy new 325,000-square-foot retail center on Boston Street, as a troubling sign that the tastes and attitudes of the suburbs are encroaching on our treasured city ways. Not me, friends. I say, encroach away. For instance, just a few weeks ago, I went to Canton Crossing for about an hour and came away with a pack of socks, a cake carrier, three cheap polo shirts, and three boxes of Nabisco's Famous Chocolate Wafers. Before Canton Crossing, it would have taken days to find all that stuff in the city.

Watching a Ravens game in Canton's O'Donnell Square typically means one thing: showing up early to claim a spot with a clear view of a TV. Most people head to Looney's Pub and Claddagh's Pub first, but in between them is a strong option that's often overlooked on gameday: Plug Ugly's Publick House. I wasn't in love with the bar in my initial review from August 2012. But since then, Plug Ugly's - with its upstairs patio and above-average food and drink offerings - has emerged as a consistently viable alternative to the Square's more crowded bars.

The first time I went to Looney's Pub in Canton, I liked its laid-back feel and worn-in decor. That was more than two years ago, when Looney's seemed to expend as much effort courting sit-down diners as it did drinkers. A lot has changed for the better at the Canton Square pub since then. Last year, the owners decided to shift their focus more to the drinkers and made some much-needed renovations. They removed one of the two pool tables upstairs, built a new bar on each floor, and brought in high-topped tables and chairs to one of the two downstairs dining rooms.

MAYBE IT was the plum wig, or the violet eyelashes. Or the carefully placed football halves sewed securely onto the handmade Astroturf chemise. Whatever it was, it won Gretchen Dobelstein not only notice, but also a trip to this year's Super Bowl and a stint as a model for Miller Lite beer. Dobelstein, 26, says she has always been an enthusiastic sports fan, especially splashing out in team colors. But her winning persona as the wildly violet "football fairy" evolved last year, when she and her extended family drove a purple-painted van to Tampa, Fla., to watch the Ravens play in the Super Bowl.

A handful of Anne Arundel County liquor stores are taking advantage of new liquor laws in hopes of cashing in on beer drinkers' interest in craft brews. They've installed taps in their stores to dispense specialty beers into refillable glass jugs called growlers — a practice that was legalized in the county at the beginning of July. John Fisher, owner of Staples Corner Liquors in Gambrills, drove to Annapolis earlier this year to testify before state lawmakers in favor of the law allowing growlers in the city and county.

When it opened a few years ago, the Abbey Burger Bistro was the first restaurant in Federal Hill to offer upscale burgers with odd meats. (Wild boar, anyone?) But it quickly became a neighborhood favorite of Ravens fans and the post-college set. The restaurant and bar is down a short alley off East Cross Street. On your first visit, you might walk right past it without realizing it. There are two floors - if the downstairs bar is slammed, you might have better luck upstairs. And because it's within walking distance of M&T Bank Stadium, you're in the heart of Ravens territory.

Bubba Smith, the fearsome defensive end who played five seasons for the Baltimore Colts and helped them to victory in Super Bowl V in January 1971, was the very definition of a larger-than-life figure. A 6-foot-7, 250-pound All-American at Michigan State who prompted cries of "Kill, Bubba, Kill!" from Spartans fans, he was the No. 1 pick in the 1967 NFL draft and became a two-time Pro Bowl selection with the Colts before ending his injury-shortened career with the Oakland Raiders and Houston Oilers.

No one held their breath when Ron Singer bought Canton's Red House Tavern last summer and promised a major renovation. The bar, which had been closed since 2009, hadn't really registered in the neighborhood consciousness. When it was open, it was known more for its loud live music and karaoke. And Singer's most popular bar, Leon's in Mt. Vernon, is known for its shabby chic — to put it kindly. But when Singer says in the new ads that "only the name is the same" at Red House, he's not bluffing.

Hugh Sisson is a local expert on boutique brews. He and his family opened Maryland's first brewpub, Sisson's, in South Baltimore in 1989. Six years later, he started Clipper City Brewing on Hollins Ferry Road, almost in the shadow of an old Halethorpe brewery that, over the years, turned out National, Carling, Heileman and Stroh's beers. Today, it's one of many small craft breweries that have sprung up around the nation to satisfy a growing thirst for high-quality beer. Sisson also serves as co-host along with Al Spoler of Cellar Notes, a weekly WYPR radio show that reviews wines.
