City Paper's 2013-2014 Guide to All Things Baltimore
Saving the Day

Saving the Day

Baltimanual: Baltimore needs some explaining. It’s a city of contrasts: poverty and luxury, friendliness and crime, packed with both history and innovation, where neighborhoods can change drastically from one block to the next. 9/4/2013
Getting Around

Getting Around

Baltimanual: Baltimore infamously lacks an integrated, comprehensive mass transit system connecting all neighborhoods with the tourist areas and larger interstate transit hubs. By Edward Ericson Jr. 9/4/2013
Tourist Attractions

Tourist Attractions

Baltimanual: “Baltimore,” the song by Randy Newman from the 1970s, features a hooker, a drunk, and a refrain—“Man, it’s hard just to live”—that struck enough of a chord with the likes of Nils Lofgren, Nina Simone, David Gray, and Mullyman that they all covered it. By Van Smith 9/4/2013
The Art Scene

The Art Scene

Baltimanual: The city’s art scene may not get the same level of national attention as the music scene but it is every bit as vibrant. And with the planned extension of the Station North Arts District, the new Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District on the west side, By Baynard Woods, Rebecca Scott Lord, and Tory Haltermann 9/4/2013
Film and TV Tour

Film and TV Tour

Baltimanual: There’s a scene in the eighth episode of Season 1 of The Wire where Wee-Bey heaps a healthy dollop of horseradish onto a pit beef sandwich and says, “The trick is not to give a fuck, boy. I got this.” By Peter Hadjokas and Jenn Ladd 9/4/2013
The Music Scene

The Music Scene

Baltimanual: It’s been five years since Rolling Stone crowned Baltimore the best music scene in America. Since then, plenty of bands have gotten more national press, others have broken up, and many more have formed. By Brandon Weigel 9/4/2013
Dining

Dining

Baltimanual: Once upon a time, local food in Baltimore meant sauerkraut and Berger cookies, pit beef and crabs slathered in Old Bay. By Martha Thomas 9/4/2013
Breweries and Wineries

Breweries and Wineries

Baltimanual: Whether you’re kicking back on the weekend or just visiting, there’s nothing so pleasant as traveling to the actual brewery or winery that produces the boozy goodness that flows through a city’s taps and glasses. By Jenn Ladd 9/4/2013
Nightlife

Nightlife

Baltimanual: A city’s bar scene provides some of the most essential insights into its character: their patrons, their atmospheres, their prices reveal much. By Jenn Ladd 9/4/2013
Red Light

Red Light

Baltimanual: Part of Charm City’s charm is its louche nightlife. Where else in America can you find a red-light district across the street from police headquarters (and around the corner from the tourist-friendly Inner Harbor)? By Baynard Woods 9/4/2013
Shopping

Shopping

Baltimanual: We love shopping and if you think that’s shallow you can just stop judging—we don’t have to justify a little retail therapy when it comes to Baltimore. By Wendy Ward 9/4/2013
Sports and Recreation

Sports and Recreation

Baltimanual: Baltimore is the center of the sports universe. We’ve got the Super Bowl champion Ravens and the suddenly super Orioles, looking for consecutive playoff berths, not to mention the MISL champion Baltimore Blast, amazing prepschool and college lacrosse, and s By Jim Meyer 9/4/2013
Baltimore for Kids

Baltimore for Kids

Baltimanual: For a city with a soaring murder rate, endemic poverty, and a horribly mismanaged public school system, Baltimore is a surprisingly great place to raise kids. Really! By Evan Serpick 9/4/2013
Places to Stay

Places to Stay

Baltimanual: Baltimore: home of the Hon, the final resting place of Poe, muse of John Waters, and the place where you can find the best Maryland crab cake on earth. It’s called Charm City for good reason. By Rebecca Scott Lord 9/4/2013
Annual Events

Annual Events

Baltimanual: From Fourth of July celebrations in the high heat of summer to tree-lighting ceremonies in the chill of December, Baltimore is a city for all seasons. By Michael McGurk 9/4/2013
