Interesting blog alert!

If you're interested in following the Conventions, check out the website for the Center for Emerging Media, Marc Steiner's new digs. Marc is out in Denver now, blogging about the events. I hope he'll also be at the Republican Convention.

Hamilton Tavern open for business!

Okay, so it's not technically in Westfield, but it is on Harford Road, after all. And I hope that supporting this surge of new restaurants and interesting businesses along Harford Road could mean they continue to creep up our way.

They don't have a website up yet, but the reviews from ChowHound sound positive:
"Food was outstanding - some unique items on menu - fried dill pickles - wonderful -
The burger was outstanding cooked perfectly - spend the extra money and add a fried egg and or bacon to it - you will not be disappointed. We had the veggie pita which was so tasty - Though we did not have- we heard great comments about the steamed shrimp and mussels. Be sure and ask about specials - I had the gazpacho and it was truly the finest I have ever had anywhere ! - Also had a peach cobbler special - it was to die for ---- We will be back soon and often!! --"
So far, their hours are:

Friday and Saturday 4:30 pm to 2 am
Sunday 4:30 till... Brunch coming in September!
Monday 4:30 till
Tuesday... CLOSED

Peach cobbler -- to die for? Has anyone else eaten there yet?
Weds and Thurs 4:30 til

It's back to school time, hon!

The Baltimore City Schools System is seeking volunteers to support both schools and students. If you have some spare time, they will match volunteers with schools to help out in ways that fit both your schedule and the school’s needs. They're looking for everything from being a positive presence around the school at dismissal, to helping out within the school, or to tutor or mentor students.

Spray Paint all over Westfield- A good thing?

Does anyone know why there is so much spray paint marking up Harford road from Northern Parkway to  Hamilton Center? Could it be the Harford road improvements to our south and north are finally coming our way? Anyone know?
