Meanwhile, in the REST of Baltimore's bar world......

Lest those of us with discriminating tastes in beer forget about just how crazy and bizarre the rest of the alcohol business world is/can be, here's a fascinating nugget on the Baltimore Liquor Board's efforts to shut down one particular bar, from the Crime Beat blog of Peter Hermann at the Baltimore Sun:

To prove he's on the up-and-up, Jackson stopped by the The Baltimore Sun lobby on Tuesday to show me his lease and other documents. His occupany permit lists the old Club 410 as the new Klub Kidz, listed as a dance studio for children ages 4 to 16.

And so the first event he throws is a beer party for college graduates.

We can't make this stuff up, folks.

Another story from February on a different "trouble-making" bar downtown here. More such surrealism from yet another bar reported at Sam Sessa's Midnight Sun blog here.
