I am writing on behalf of the Lansdowne Improvement Association, Inc. regarding a petition submitted by applicants Robert Maith and Seung Chul Yang regarding Renee's Lounge at 3911 Hollins Ferry Road. The abovementioned applicants are requesting a change of liquor license classification from Class B (restaurant) to Class D (tavern - beer, wine and liquor). LIA leadership is adamantly opposed to this change. Throughout Baltimore County, it is generally expected that liquor licensees shall operate their establishments in such a manner as to avoid disturbing the peace, tranquillity, safety, health and quiet of the neighborhood.

What it is -- A pack of four single-serving, unbreakable bottles of wine. What we like about it --This affordable chardonnay is made to travel on the trail or to a picnic. Each plastic bottle holds about a glass of wine (but no need to bring glasses). The wine could be more complex, but as long as you keep it chilled in the backpack or picnic hamper, its pleasant taste will go nicely with casual fare such as grilled chicken and potato salad. Pinot grigio, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and white zinfandel also are available.
