Eleven Things Hawker Missed Blogging About & Maybe You Missed Too

1. Dangerously Delicious Pies is coming to Hampden! On June 14, Dangerously Delicious Pies Savory House will open at 3547 Chestnut Avenue in the old Finnerteas' spot. Hawker does love some Cafe Hon pie, but I think Hampden is big enough for the both of 'em. The DDP Savory House will serve dessert pies and coffee during the day and savory pies at night.

2. Baltimore Magazine contacted Hawker for an interview, and Hawker missed it. (It's all Baby Hawker's fault, FYI.)

3. The Keswick Auto Center is trying to start selling cars. There was a hearing in April, and Hawker will try to find out what happened.

4. The Hampden Republican Club got busted for illegal liquor sales.

5. There are real hawks in Hampden! A tipster recently reported two cooper hawks spotted by the park on 33rd and Keswick helping out with the rodent issue and harassing smaller birds.

6. On behalf of all of Hampden, I'd like to offer a sincere apology to Judge Davis. Just don't read the comments after his editorial if you're not in the mood to puke at how any idiot can post whatever racist crap they want on the Internet with total immunity.

7. Truck loading zone on Chestnut may be unnecessary, and only YOU can fix it!

8. Has anyone seen the juggling busker on the Avenue!?!

9. The city apparently held up improvements for the Roosevelt Park ball field.

10. Atomic Books is moving! They're staying in Hampden, but it looks like another local business will be opening up in the old Books space. Details to come. . .

11.In very sad news, as most all of you know already, Marty from Frazier's died unexpectedly of a massive heart attack in early May. He was a true Hampden fixture, and he will be missed by many. Rest in peace, Marty.

That is so sad about Marty...I had no idea! I used to love the way he'd chase around John Hill and yell at snarky comedians. He was a true Hampden staple that will be sorely missed.

Cool! There's also a juggling club that just started up at the Hampden Rec Center in Roosevelt Park, every Thursday night from 7-9pm, open to all ages and skill levels, free of charge, and we have juggling supplies you can use.

My wife and I were in our back yard last fall, 2 blocks up from the Avenue on Hickory, and a young Cooper's Hawk plowed into our fence, chasing a small bird. It recomposed itself on top of the fence and flew off. So yes, they're definitely around!

Damn. First I clicked the link and only then I saw your "don't read the comments." How embarrassing. The only excuse I can think of (regarding the comments) is that the article and most comments are from about a month ago, closer to the bus beating. But really, it's just an excuse. People will use any excuse to mask their racism.
