Random News Round-Up

1. Elizabeth Large reviews Woodberry Kitchen, and she likes it--mostly. But you can tell that Clipper Mill still feels like Hampden because she does it! She calls it quirky! (Ok, quirky isn't eclectic , but it's close.)

2. Mamie's new place takes Hampden to Aberdeen.

3. The Baltimore Messenger's best photos of 2007 feature a number of Hampden shots. Burlesque performer with a snake? The wild fervor of Hampden Idol? Little girls dressed as hons snacking on Utz? It's all so quirky!

4. There will be another day scheduled to buy one of those hot new yellow recycling bins, but it hasn't been scheduled yet. You know, news! (The good news is to remember that you don't need an official new yellow bin. Boxes will work (and can be recycled themselves,) or you can use any reusable bin--"they could be purple with pink polka dots" according to Baltimore Department of Public Works Kurt Kocher. (Insert "purple with pink polka dots is perfect for quirky Hampden comment here.)

Remember Hampdenites, Baltimore Messenger links don't last forever!

I put out my paper/plastic/metal/glass recyclables in a plastic shopping bag and they took it (or someone took it). I'm glad the city is making it so simple - hopefully more people will start recycling now.

Technically (according to the article,) you're not supposed to use plastic bags, but hey! It worked for you :)

I totally agree that this is an easier system. I wish it was weekly, but this "single stream" concept is a big improvement.

The most perplexing thing about the city recycling program is why they don't pick up recyclables in the alley for those of us who have rear collection for our trash.
