There's not much better than downing an ice-cold beer on a hot summer day. But how about downing a really inexpensive ice-cold beer on a hot summer day? Yeah, that may be better. For our third annual survey, we again divided the city into four quadrants, called hundreds of Baltimore's biggest, posh-est, smallest and divey-est bars and asked for their best prices on bottles/cans, microbrews and happy hours. We're not against drafts, but we've eliminated that category this year because there wasn't much variation in price across the city.

Today the Towson Library is an impressive three-story brick and concrete bastion of literacy with a tower-like rotunda, a faux dragon in a faux fish pond, and enough space to accommodate the administrative offices of the Baltimore County Public Library system. The library chalked up 475,495 visits during the last fiscal year. It remains one of the busiest branches in the BCPL system. But in 1936 its beginning was less than propitious. The first borrower was a gentleman who took out a book on taxidermy, according to a history written by Corky Ives, branch manager from 1980 to 1998.
