I just want to say that I can't believe that nothing has opened in the former Rocky Run location in Charles Village. Rocky Run was always busy, and it was big - cut a little fat from the operating budget, fix that horrible smell that never got fixed when it changed its name to Bert's, and you could have a cash cow. The Charles Village Pub is always crowded, too much so, and the peanuts and trivia at Rocky Run. There's a sign in the window for a pasta and pizza place, and I'm hoping it's a cool hangout bar as well.
There's also been a sign in the window of the previous Xando's location for a while, that a new Pizza Tavern was coming. I forget the name, but I've googled it, and the only information I found was old. I haven't seen any progress there recently.
So, I'm feeling nostalgic for Rocky Run (where I had several of my best Baltimore memories), and think something should hurry up and establish themselves. I know it's a recession, but still - a college campus area that has one bar? No good pizza places? Come on... these vacant storefronts are just depressing.
