In this week's issue, we recommend that you Stay Warm... Drink Whiskey, with a guide to the various kinds of whiskey, a rundown of great places in town to drink whiskey, some introduction to great local bartenders, and an interview with the founder of the Sloop Betty distillery.

If you drink at the right place, you may even run into this week's City Folk profile, George Hastings, a champion oyster shucker.

In Mobtown Beat, Baynard Woods looks at the Rec2Tech program at the Digital Harbor Foundation and Edward Ericson Jr. asks where the money from the Wells Fargo settlement actually went. And check out Murder Ink and the all-Ravens Baltimore City Power Rankings

In the arts, Baynard Woods talks with John Waters about Hairspray, hitchhiking, and why his films are documentaries about Baltimore. Woods also talks with Thomas Bradhshaw about his anti-psychological plays in workshop at Center Stage. Geoffrey Himes reviews Center Stage's major production of Mountaintop and looks into Moving Passages, Full Circle Dance Company's dance performance based on spoken poems. Evan Serpick talks with the xx about life on the road, making a new album, and moving out of their parents' houses, while Rock Since the Beegees tells you what's up with indie rock. In film, Lee Gardner looks at love and death in Amour and Jenn Ladd is not so scared of Mama.

In Eats and Drinks, Martha Thomas reviews the new Langerman's in Federal Hill, and dishes on the restaurant scene in Comings and Goings, while we go to the West Side's Kristo's for some Cheap Eats.

In our columns, Dave Cluster is back with Homelesscide and Jim Meyer's Spitballin' is ecstatic about the Superbowl.
