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 Parkside Sports Bar and Pub in Canton , which finally gets a proper print review. Jeremy Trucker reviewed it for the blog back in the Fall. There's a unverified rumor that the owner Eric Matthias is trying to sell the bar, so it seemed like a good idea to review the bar before or if it was taken over by someone else. As it is, "Parkside is an animated corner bar, and with some real investment it could become a genuinely great sports bar. It already has the real estate to draw groups of sports fans.

For years, Silks, the bar at the corner of Hudson Street and South Lakewood Avenue in Canton, was mostly overlooked. It was just another corner bar you'd walk past on the way to someplace else. But now, after a two-and-a-half-year renovation, Silks has reinvented itself as a welcoming neighborhood spot. With a good, revolving beer selection, an appealing menu that focuses on pub-friendly food and smiling faces behind the bar, it's giving local residents a reason to do more than walk on by. Scene & Decor Aesthetically, Silks has cleaned up its act, transforming its run-down space into something fresh and attractive.

The possibilities were as dizzying as a Tim Howard punt into the muggy Brazilian sky. If the United States could beat or tie Germany in Thursday's crucial game, it would advance to the knockout round of the World Cup for the fourth time in 64 years. Lose, and the U.S. team might still make it, depending on what happened in another game 1,300 miles away. Probably few of the star-spangled crazies who packed Delia Foley's Pub in Federal Hill to see the match on television hoped their team would advance by losing.

Pinkies up! St. Stephen's Traditional Episcopal Church in Timonium is hosting its 12th annual British Garden Party and Fete on Saturday, May 4 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, even though it costs St. Stephen's nearly  $4,000 each year to present this "bit of Jolly Olde England," as the church bills it. "It's really a gift to the community," the Rev. Guy Hawtin said. "It's not really a money-making venture - the goal is to break even. One year we cleared $50 profit.

READ the words "pub food" and the images that typically come to mind are of hamburgers, fish and chips and potato skins. Those were the things we expected to find at Lagers Pub in Canton. What we got instead was better-than-average food that would be at home on the tables of fancier restaurants. The nicest surprise was chef Charlie Daniel's stylish desserts: a butterscotch pudding flavored with 12-year-old Glenlivet and served in a martini glass; a puffy, perfect-looking apple strudel that we felt guilty about cutting into until we tasted the fruity, walnut-laden filling; and a flourless chocolate walnut torte also was a looker, drizzled with a bittersweet chocolate glaze.

LIKE MANY FAMILIES on vacation, mine spent much of our recent two weeks in London debating how we would spend our holiday. My wife, the culture vulture, was fond of touring museums. My younger son, 18, preferred visiting castles and checking out nightspots with his older brother, 22, who has been studying in London this summer. Meanwhile, I kept slipping away to the pubs, learning the beer-drinking habits of Londoners. Of the half-dozen London pubs I visited, my favorite was the Nags Head at 53 Kinnerton St. in the Knightsbridge area just south of Hyde Park.

MOST PEOPLE don't go to pubs for dessert. In fact, most pubs (and a disappointing number of restaurants) don't even bother to make the desserts they serve. Somehow, somebody decided that it's more efficient or better to contract the sweets to an outside vendor. At G. L. Shacks, a pub in Catonsville, Dave Martin tries to be the exception. The chef makes some of the desserts himself. If the brownie cheesecake is a true indication of his ability, then Shacks no longer needs to consider using anyone else.

In Like Flynn Tavern, the Irish bar that replaced J. Patrick's Pub in Locust Point, opened on June 7. The neighborhood has already been “super supportive” of the new restaurant, according to general manager Cora Flynn. Some patrons came in three or four times the first week of operation, she said. More than a year and a half in the making, In Like Flynn's route to open was not usual. In early January 2013, Steve O'Donnell, a rookie to the restaurant business, purchased the Andre Street location (and its liquor license)

Adam Benesch, a co-founder of Union Craft Brewing in Hampden, would like to take his Duckpin Pale Ale to a farmers' market and let consumers taste and buy it. John Knorr, co-owner of Evolution Craft Brewing in Salisbury, just wants to brew more beer. Both want the General Assembly to pass legislation that would help Maryland's burgeoning microbrewery industry continue to grow. Bills that would open farmers' markets and county fairs to tastings and sales by the state's beer producers and raise the limit on how many barrels brewpubs can produce top the 2014 wish list of the Brewers Association of Maryland.

More than three years after its closing, the Valley Inn is back in business. Now owned by Ted Bauer, the owner and operator of the Oregon Grille in Hunt Valley, the landmark on Falls Road just north of the beltway had its newly remodeled pub open for business last weekend. The pub is the first space to open under the Valley Inn's new ownership, but there's more to come, including a separate raw bar area and a full-scale dining room. For now, the pub appears to be operating on a part-time basis.

When a friend asked me to an opening event for Young Audiences, I was caught unawares. Could Remington's newest arts and food destination be ready so soon? It seemed like only few months ago this old tire shop at 26th and Howard streets still had the unmistakable auto garage aroma. But this week the trucks were unloading the new commercial dishwashers and carpenters were fitting out the newly named Parts & Labor, the butcher shop and pub that will start serving Maryland craft beers alongside plates of local sausage, sauerkraut and potatoes later this year.

KEEP THE LOCAL BEER flowing! That is the essence of a compromise plan worked out by Maryland Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein so micro-brewers can double their production while retaining their pub-restaurants. This should fortify the state's eight affected micro-breweries, though it hardly turns Maryland into a mecca for such operations.The problem is that Maryland's post-Prohibition law sets up a three-tier system of suppliers, wholesalers and retailers that doesn't work so well in an era when small beer manufacturers want to promote and test-market their ales and lagers at their own pub-restaurant.

The county liquor board renewed the Londontowne Pub's license Tuesday despite neighbors' complaints of excessive noise, parking lot brawls and patrons urinating in their yards.The license renewal came with a stern warning and a number of restrictions."If you can't clean that place up and if you can't control the crowd, this board will do it for you," said Thomas Riggin, chairman of the Board of Liquor License Commissioners. If problems continue, "you're not going to be around."Thirty to 40 neighbors protested the license renewal, citing a litany of complaints dating back before thecurrent licensees, Michael and Susan Paddy, bought the tavern four years ago."

Ryleigh's Oyster has expanded, and for that Baltimore County should be thankful. Ryleigh's is a big name in Federal Hill, where it stands out as a slightly more sophisticated dining and drinking option in a sea of crazy bars more focused on volume than quality. In early November, Ryleigh's owners opened a second location, dubbed Ryleigh's Oyster Hunt Valley (though it's technically in Timonium, in the Padonia Road location locals call "that place that used to be Gibby's"). So how does this downtown restaurant translate in the county?

Every now and again, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will dash off a Certificate of Recognition for a meritorious Maryland business.  Today, Franchot is scheduled to stop by Koco's Pub up on Harford Road where he'll be presenting one of those certificates to Koco's owners John and Joanna Kocovinos and their daughter Marcella Knight. The certificate will recognize Koco's "for its reputation as a wonderful, neighborhood gathering place, its welcoming and friendly atmosphere, its award-winning Koco's Crab Cake -- made with a secret family recipe -- and award-winning chicken wings," according to a media alert from the comptroller's office.
