Some friends and I have a New Year's Resolution of sorts to try a different bar every two weeks, starting with A and working our way to Z. We need a good 'B' place that isn't Brewer's Art or Bertha's. The only one I can think of so far is Bert's in Charles Village. We can go further afield than Baltimore, but that's our home base.
b bistro was suggested but I've never been and thought it was more of a sit-down place than a bar scene.
