But the team at the newly opened Fells Point lounge, Willow, want to change the shot's reputation with their menu of creative, craft shots, smartly called Abbreviations.

Ryan Perlberg's mark on Fells Point continues to grow at a rapid rate. On July 13, after three months of preparation, the Stuggy's and Rye co-owner opened Willow, his third establishment in the popular Baltimore neighborhood. Willow is a Latin-fusion lounge focusing on Rye mixologist Doug Atwell and Julia Momose's hand-crafted cocktails and Stuggy's chef Benjamin Poison's take on Mexican food. If Perlberg's expansion resembles a corner of a "Monopoly" board - Stuggy's, Rye and Willow are all next to each other on South Broadway - it was not by design, he says.

Old Town Laurel's oldest resident, one who stood silent witness to the birth of our country, the creation of our town and the growth of the modern world, has died. On Nov. 18, the 250-year-old champion willow oak, located at Park Place on Talbott Avenue between Seventh and Eighth streets, succumbed to the rigors of that long life and the stresses of the 21st century, and fell to the saw. Once, it was just one of many large trees that made up the oak grove that dominated that section of Laurel, and from which the city's historically black neighborhood, the Grove, took its name.

Lavender, that is — and lots of it. So much that the couple created a festival in 2001 to celebrate the crop.
