THG Writer's Zine Wins "Best of Baltimore"

Congratulations to good friend and frequent THG contributor WP Tandy. Tandy's zine Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore was named "Best Zine" in Baltimore magazine's annual "Best of Baltimore" issue.
Who says blogs have made zines obsolete? That's certainly not the case with William P. Tandy's Smile Hon, You're in Baltimore. Tandy's Baltimore narrative exists largely outside the official record in that it's gleaned from folks sitting on barstools and standing on street corners. That's what makes it indispensable reading for anyone who appreciates and loves the city, warts and all.
Also receiving kudos in the issue are such longtime THG faves as Andy Nelson's BBQ, Towson's own Pasta Mista (though I still prefer Fortunato's and Matthew's), and even the sliders at Salt (the one bright spot of an otherwise forgettable meal).

For a sampling of Tandy's THG pieces check out his look at Jersey diners and an appreciation of the sights, sounds and smells of the Jersey shore.
