For 34 years, Brass Balls Saloon has been a go-to location on Ocean City 's boardwalk, providing live entertainment daily and a whole lot of hilarious "balls"-related puns. To no one's surprise, and much to my 13-year-old's sense of humor's delight, the cocktail menu is no different. While widely known for introducing the Rum Runner to the Mid-Atlantic via Key West, Fla., alongside nearby Seacrets , Brass Balls Saloon's vast party cocktail menu doesn't disappoint with its summery blends.

To watch the Ravens and be surrounded by some history, go to the Horse You Came In On Saloon. The Fells Point bar is said to be among the oldest in the city, dating to 1775. According to its website, the owners even claim to be the "oldest continually operated saloon in North America. " It is also said to be the last place where Edgar Allan Poe had a drink before he died. These days, the bar is commonly mobbed with people in their 20s on weekday nights. It is not quite the antithesis of Bond Street Social down the street, equally popular with young professionals, but it is definitely rowdier, with loud, classic rock music constantly blaring from the dank interior.

The Empty Pockets Saloon is a pretty good place to go if your pockets are indeed near-empty, because the food and drink prices at this Locust Point bar are miles removed from those of the nearby Inner Harbor.A glance out the saloon's front window gives as firm a geographic fix on the neighborhood as you could ask for: Formstone-clad row houses stand across the street, and off to the east is the giant Domino Sugar sign looming like a leftover prop from Barry Levinson's filmography.There has been a tavern here for more than 50 years, but the present incarnation dates only to 1990.

A diner owner paid $1.57 million yesterday for Fells Point's historic Horse You Came in On saloon, which the owner decided to sell after more than 30 years in business. Ioannis Korologos of Ellicott City, who owns six area Double-T Diners, beat out a handful of bidders at the auction, held at the bar at 1626 Thames St. "I thought it would be a good investment," said Korologos, who plans to keep the site a bar - with a few cosmetic improvements. "I'll definitely keep the name and the atmosphere."

Souris' Saloon has been at the corner of York and Allegheny since 1934, but these days it's not the same Souris'. At the end of last year it was taken over by new owners and turned into more of a restaurant, less of a bar. It also expanded; much of the space you see now was a dry cleaner's and storage area.I never went to the old Souris', but apparently the best of what used to be there has been kept and renovated. The pressed tin ceiling was preserved, as well as the wooden booths and paneling, the mirrors and wonderful art deco appointments.

The restaurant space in Harborplace where Wayne's Bar-b-que used to be -- Wayne's has moved to the Pratt Street Pavilion -- now has a sleek new look. It features an antique bar, fireplace, exposed brick, wooden booths and period fixtures. With such improvements the recently opened J. Paul's has attempted to turn the glass and metal exoskeleton of Harborplace into an old-fashioned saloon.It works well enough. It would have worked even better in a wonderful old rowhouse, but you can't have everything.

Southwestern-themed bar Dark Horse Saloon and Irish Pub Finnegan's Wake, the improbably conjoined bars at the former Canton Arts & Entertainment complex, have switched owners. The pub is poised to close afterSt. Patrick's Day, says Marc McFaul, who after nine months at the helm sold the business to Kenny Der, a regular DJ at Dark Horse. Finnegan's is likely to be turned into an extension of the Southwestern theme at Dark Horse next door. The switch gives McFaul's tenure the sprawling complex's second-longest run. It lasted a little over five months as Canton Arts and Entertainment , which at one point included a bar, an oyster bar and a restaurant.  CAE opened in September 2009 and closed the next March.

The Fells Point Corner Theatre production ofEugene O'Neill's "The Iceman Cometh" is being staged in the right Baltimore neighborhood, because the entire play takes place in a bar. This is such a hard-drinking play that the word-drunk characters only shut up when they pass out, and even then they mumble in their sleep. Let's just say that the personally troubled, Pulitzer- and Nobel-prize winning playwright knew his down-and-out characters well, because O'Neill is completely persuasive in depicting their boasting and their brawls.

Broadcasting an Ultimate Fighting Championship fight between Tito Ortiz and Forrest Griffin II may cost The Horse You Came in on Saloon $150,000. That's how much a promotional company wants the Fells Point bar to pay in damages for showing a fight it claims it had sole rights to. Joe Hand Promotions, based in Pennsylvania, filed the lawsuit Monday in Baltimore's U.S. District Court. A second lawsuit over the same fight was filed against a Silver Spring restaurant, Irene's Pupusas III. The company has a history of filing similar lawsuits against area bars, and has found some success.

Here's the part where you can tell me how wrong (or how right!) I was on a review. This week's bar review is about Canton's Combination Irish Pub-BBQBar, otherwise known as Finnegan's Wake and Dark Horse Saloon. While both bars have their strengths, " neither place is yet up to the standards of some of the better bars just a block or two away . " The rest of the review is here . Agree, or disagree? Have your say in the comments.
