  • Bar review: Wild Willy's doesn't live up to its name

    Bar review: Wild Willy's doesn't live up to its name
    When Wild Willy's Rock House & Sports Saloon opened in Annapolis last year, it promised to be the wildest party in town. In the promo pictures, waitresses wore microscopic tops and jean shorts, holding on to pool cues and flashing come-hither looks....

    L.A.'s postwar art scene: Hot rods and hedonism
    In September 1945, under a pall of ocher smog and summer heat, Los Angeles entered the postwar world. The city then was bigger, wealthier and more diverse than ever. Its established people — mostly past middle age and conservative, a few who were...

    From Sun Magazine: Chazz Palminteri brings rustic Italian style to suburban New York
    As a young man living in the Bronx, Chazz Palminteri would escape the city on long drives into the Westchester County countryside where he'd tool along curving, forested roads, staring at the set-back mansions. To a guy with empty pockets, the gated lawns...

    Michael Heizer's calling is set in stone
    In early 1969, a young artist working in the Nevada desert had an idea for an epic sculpture. Michael Heizer had found a 120-ton boulder in the mountains and wanted to set it above a trench dug in a dry lake bed. Visitors would be able to walk into the...

    'Word Jazz' pioneer Ken Nordine's career gets a closer look at film festival
    Chicago's Oldest Living Hipster lives in Edgewater, on the North Side. He is 92 but looks 83. He lives behind a wrought-iron fence, surrounded on all sides by the drabbest of stone-colored apartment complexes. His home is a small castle, built a...

    Free Music Friday! A power-pop jolt from reunited North Carolina band The dB's
    The dB's -- one of the greatest, most-overlooked rock bands of the 1980s -- is back together with its original lineup and a new album of fresh material. For me, this is more exciting than the Beach Boys mending fences with Brian Wilson. The new dB's...

    From Sun Magazine: Q&A: BMA director Doreen Bolger
    A large drawing hangs behind Doreen Bolger's desk, dripping with the words "Forward in all directions." The phrase, drawn with bleach on dark paper by Baltimore artist Colin Benjamin, has become something of a mantra for Bolger, the director of the...
