Think you're excited for some Orioles playoff action? Consider Trufflz, who may be more excited than anyone else in town. Trufflz is a 4-year-old shih tzu owned by Caryn Green, who lives in Mount Washington and works at Glarus Chocolatier in Timonium - hence the pup's name. She has an impressive collection of orange and black toys that Green collects every Halloween and is spending much of her time this week in an Orioles tutu and hair bow. “We are waiting for our Orioles to triumph in the post-season and hopefully bring that World Series trophy back to Baltimore,” says Green, who's also a life-long fan of the team.

Blue Sage Cafe and Wine Bar opened on June 1 in Mount Washington in the Kelly Avenue space that was formerly The Falls (and before that Freida's Kitchen and, for years, the Mt. Washington Food Market). I've been hearing about Blue Sage - and read about it on a few other blogs -- but I kept not picking up the phone to check it out. So, I was happy to hear from Ricky Johnson, the bar and front-of-house manager at Blue Sage, who filled me in on the background and early days of Blue Sage.

The Catonsville resident said he spends the hours while his son swims at Meadowbrook Aquatic Center wandering around Mount Washington, picking up garbage that would otherwise end up in the Jones Falls. These travels recently became more treacherous. A pedestrian signal button post on the southwest corner of Falls Road and Kelly Avenue had been knocked down during the winter.

I'm a sucker for cocktail names. The more obscure, random or puzzling, the better. Like "Bramble. " I've noticed it on several drink menus across Baltimore this summer and finally found one worth ordering — the Bramble On at the Nickel Taphouse in Mount Washington. It turns out the Bramble has a pretty storied history. One might even call it a modern classic. "The Bramble was — and still is — a cocktail that was popular in England in the 1980s. Basically, it's a gin sour with blackberry liqueur.
