John Houser III reviews the new Joe Squared at Power Plant Live. Houser loved the crunchy Vidalia onions, the sparing use of bacon and the clean and smoky flavors of the bacon and clam pizza but the did not like the limp and slimy basil in his mojito. I don't like limp and slimy anything, I reckon. Also, they should sell slice pizza on weeknights, Houser says. Here's that review of Joe Squared at Power Plant Live .

Aggio, the serenely pretty new restaurant at Power Plant Live, invites you to take a pleasure cruise through contemporary Italian cuisine. Your captain is Bryan Voltaggio, the genial chef who first gained national exposure as a contestant on "Top Chef. " If Voltaggio is not a name in your household, know that it is in those that follow dining news as entertainment. He is, to put it plainly, a celebrity chef. But don't let that stop you. In culinary circles, Voltaggio is better known for his flagship restaurant Volt, which he opened in 2008 in his hometown of Frederick, and which continues to operate, six summers later, as a modernist dining mecca, the kind of place that diners plan their visits for months in advance.

With only six games to play and division opponents the Boston Red Sox in town this weekend, the Orioles sit one game behind the first-place New York Yankees and atop the American League Wild Card. So for the first time in many years, the O's are relevant in late September and, appropriately, the city has taken notice. Above is a photo of the main Power Plant Live sign, with the "O" lit-up orange in honor of the home team. The entertainment complex joins the Legg Mason building in getting into the pennant-chasing spirit.

Kettle Hill has announced an opening date. Inspired, its operators say, by the life and spirit of Theodore Roosevelt, Kettle Hill will open on April 20 on Market Place as the anchor restaurant in the Power Plant Live complex. The restaurant's name is inspired by the military exploits of Roosevelt and his Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War. San Juan Hill is better remembered today than Kettle Hill, but Kettle Hill is a great name for a restaurant. The team behind Kettle Hill are Keystone Hospitality partners Desmond Reilly and Kristopher Carr, whose growing infatuation with Roosevelt's take-charge ethos has also inspired the name for the bar within Kettle Hill.

Adam Gershowitz, 25, stood inside a bar at Power Plant Live! a half hour before the United States was set to take on Germany on Thursday. He was decked out in American gear, highlighted by a pair of red, white and blue suspenders he got as a birthday gift. “Our destiny is in our own hands,” Gershowitz said. The grounds weren't too packed to begin with, but as the game approached fans started to trickle into the outdoor area. They watched on a 20-foot projection screen as the United States lost 1-0 . Fans moaned when Germany scored, cheered whenever the U.S. got near the goal and breathed a sigh of relief when the Americans were able to advance into the knockout round despite the defeat.

Last week, Thomas Rhett walked with his wife through a Nashville Walmart in search of an electric dog fence. While strolling the aisles, the 24-year-old country singer-songwriter passed the music section and spotted his debut album, October's “It Goes Like This,” on the shelves. “There's a Walmart literally every five miles from here to Seattle, Washington,” Rhett said on the phone afterward. “Knowing that your face is on all those racks in Target, Best Buy and all those places, it makes you feel very, very small.” As his star has grown among the country ranks, Rhett - who plays a free Power Plant Live concert on Friday to celebrate the opening of new country bar Tin Roof - has embraced humility.

Bryan Voltaggio's recent announcement that he'd be opening a restaurant in Baltimore arrived like a complimentary dessert — something you appreciate all the more because it isn't expected. "OHMAGAWD" and "yeeeeeesss!!!" were a few of the reactions on Twitter. But the "Top Chef" alumnus said he had wanted to come to Baltimore for years. It was just a matter of finding the right place, said Voltaggio, who co-owns Volt, his flagship restaurant, and Family Meal in his hometown of Frederick, as well as the meat-centric Range in Washington's Chevy Chase.

Danielle Reynolds, Elisa Davis and Michael Ross came from out of state to spend New Year's Eve in Baltimore. The three were meeting a larger group for dinner and drinks at Howl at the Moon, a piano bar in Power Plant Live. They were among the estimated 50,000 who packed into the Inner Harbor for the 2014 New Year's Eve Spectacular, an annual fireworks celebration to usher in the new year. Reynolds, a resident of Philadelphia, said she and Davis, who lives in Wilmington, Del., had been to Baltimore last year for a bachelorette party, and they were excited to spend the first few hours of 2014 in the city at the all-you-can-drink open bar before heading back to a relative's home in Fells Point to spend the night.
