In this week's cover story, Charlie Vascellaro looks back, forward, and sideways at the O's chances this year, and in Spitballin', columnist Jim Meyer makes a Birds fan Bucket List.

In Mobtown Beat, Deborah Rudacille, the author of Roots of Steel, reports from the old Sparrows Point steelworkers USW union hall.

J.M. Giordano, no slouch behind the camera himself, brings us a portrait of Stacey Barich, a pinup photographer, for this week's City Folk.

In the Arts, Bret McCabe goes into the Uncanny Valley with Timothy Horjus' show at Creative Alliance and digs into America's roots as a Smuggler Nation (illustrated by students in CP freelance illustrator Alex Fine’s Sophomore Illustration 2 class at Maryland Institute College of Art). Baynard Woods digs Richard Caton Woodville at the Walters, and reviews Iron Crow Theatre's angst-ridden production of Slipping. In Music, Al Shipley previews the Baltimore Popfest, tells us what's up with dance music in BPM, and, as always helps you plan your musical week with the Short List. In film, Reel Shorts, rounds up a plethora of films opening this week, including John Waters' classic Pink Flamingos and Spring Breakers, whose director, Harmony Korine, might just be trying to play Raymond Marble to Waters' Babs.

In Eats and Drinks, John Houser III is surprised by Aladdin's Kebab, Martha Thomas has the scoop on Comings and Goings, and Brandon Weigel reports on Baltimore's least likely LAX bar.
