Like folks in Hampden aren't already aware of the many brands of liquor available to them.

So this whole liquor billboard thing is ridiculous. (See Hawker's Midweek News Roundup for a link to the City Paper story.) If I got pulled over by a cop in Hampden, my "I didn't know the speed limit was 25!" excuse would not fly, and Clear Channel is claiming that what happened was simply a mistake. Aren't there still fines to be levied?

Mary Pat Clarke let a Hawker tipster know yesterday that "Violation notices will be issued tomorrow if all signs are not down. Julie Day is the Housing lawyer handling the violation notices."

So today is the day: if you see any liquor billboard still up around Hampden, take a picture and send it to:

julia.day@baltimore.gov

and cc:

mclarke@baltimorecitycouncil.com

I have a feeling, however, that since Clear Channel knew there was a deadline, there won't be anything to see.

Must be nice to be the big guy and have somebody warn you before they issue you a violation!

well, it's the 31st and the henessy sign on falls is still there...but might be considered a commercial area.
