Heavy Seas Alehouse has posted a "Meet the Staff" video on You Tube in which their staff members talk about their Heavy Seas pours, beer cocktails and menu items. What a great idea. It's not overly produced or slick; it's just right, and it makes me want to go right now. And another thing -- I recognize some of these faces from Heavy Seas' opening week back in February. Heavy Seas uses social media about as well as any restaurant in Baltimore. Of course the video took more effort than a Tweet, but it's still surprising how bad so lazy Baltimore restaurants are with social media.

More than two dozen Johns Hopkins University students and staff painted the corridors of the 29th Street Community Center on Saturday as part of the school's annual President's Day of Service. Among them was the university's president himself. Crouching on his knees with brush in hand to cover a few hard-to-reach spots on the walls outside the center's main office, Hopkins President Ronald J. Daniels modeled roles he wanted students to play when he launched the community service day in 2009.

Bushmill Tavern is the restaurant/bar that every neighborhood wishes it had. There's nothing fancy about the place, from the bare bones decor to the burger-centric menu, but thanks to friendly service and a ton of talent in the kitchen, locals could eat at Bushmill every night and never get bored. The Abingdon restaurant opened in February. In May, chef Mark Littleton took over in the kitchen. Littleton, who developed a loyal following in the city during his stints at Annabel Lee Tavern and the now-shuttered Adam's Eve, keeps the menu casual but shows off his cooking chops with top-notch execution and creative touches to standard dishes.

We have been incredibly touched by the heartfelt support our customers, long-time friends, colleagues and employees have shown us since fire swept through the Mt. Washington Tavern Oct. 31 ("Fire destroys tavern," Nov. 1). We have spent the days since taking stock of the damage and destruction left behind and creating a plan to move forward. We are grateful no one was harmed in the fire, and we are in awe of the amazing outpouring of support people have shown us. The more than 500 Facebook posts, e-mails and phone calls have made it clear that the Mt. Washington Tavern was so much more than a business; it was a Baltimore institution.

Becoming news reporters was the farthest thing on the minds of many current members of The Aegis staff on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. Most of them were still in school and hadn't even thought about where their career paths might lead. For the veteran news staff members who watched the horrific events unfold in our newsroom, 10 years hasn't dimmed the vividness of their memories of that tragic day about where they were when they first heard the news that our county had been attacked.

Former Orioles manager Dave Trembley, who had been a minor league instructor with the Atlanta Braves, has been hired to be on the big league staff of new Houston Astros manager Bo Porter. The exact position has not been announced, but it wouldn't be a surprise if Trembley ended up as Porter's bench coach. Trembley managed Porter in the minors. Tha Astros also hired John Malee as hitting coach and retained Doug Brocail (pitching coach) and Dave Clark (position unspecified). “A manager is only as good as his coaching staff and I'm confident these four will contribute to a terrific staff that can help us accomplish our goals,” Porter said in a team news release.

Former Gov. Robert Ehrlich's chief of staff said this evening that he supports same-sex marriage, becoming one of the highest profile Republicans in the state to add his voice to the pro-gay marriage cause.

Cheney's daughter is gay and Mehlmen is set to appear next month at a star-studded fundraiser for Maryland's same-sex marriage law. The state is set to have an ususally crowded ballot in November.

The staff at the Aberdeen Post Office flexed a little extra muscle in December, above and beyond its regular holiday rush. Over the course of several days, a team of five employees processed shipments totaling in excess of 1,000 pounds – all postmarked to various military installations overseas. These packages contained an assortment of comfort items that had been collected and assembled by volunteers of an organization known as "Some SAY Support. We SEND Support," or S5. Members of S5 recently visited the Aberdeen post office to personally thank the postmaster and her staff, whose stellar customer service made these shipments possible.

Several months ago, Baltimore Inspector General Robert H. Pearre Jr. quietly decided to dedicate an agent solely to investigating workers' compensation and disability fraud within Baltimore's police and fire departments — and this week investigators announced charges against a former city officer accused of bilking taxpayers out of more than $30,000. It's an effort Pearre plans to continue in future months, city officials said. Pearre has negotiated a deal with the police and fire departments to fund a full-time position in his office digging into what he calls "uniform fraud" — a move he expects to "bear significant fruit," he wrote in a recent report.

Domestic violence is an issue that has been on the minds of many people in recent days, prompted by the horrifying abuse committed by Ray Rice against his now-wife. His status as a professional football player, coupled with the fact that the attack was captured on video and has been seen by millions, has helped to shine a bright light on this often-neglected yet serious societal problem. Lesser known but not less tragic was the murder of Jessica Meredith Jacobsen, mother to two young boys, by her estranged husband exactly two years ago today in front of their Baltimore County home.

Even on a normal night, casinos can assault the senses with glitz, flashing lights, showgirls, cocktails, high rollers, fancy food and blaring music. So it follows that the long-awaited opening night of the $442 million Horseshoe Casino Baltimore would include all of those things - but magnified tenfold. As gamblers and curiosity-seekers lined up to enter the building Tuesday night for the first time, VIPs were treated to a performance by a vertical dance troupe - men and women suspended from cables dancing and spinning up and down a high outside wall.
