Baltimore Sandwiches: Regi’s Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Panini

Although most Baltimoreans know Regi’s for their American bistro-style dinner offerings, it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who’s eaten there that they also offer an outstanding brunch on the weekends.  Regi’s, on Light Street in Federal Hill, opens early on Saturday and Sunday to provide some of the top breakfast dishes in the area.  In my times eating there I’ve seen almost everything on their menu get rave reviews, but arguably the best brunch item on the menu is the bacon, egg, and cheese panini.

Most people will immediately scoff at the notion that this sandwich can’t possibly be better than something they could get at countless other brunches around the city, but I assure you this sandwich is special.  First, it’s served on Texas toast, which is thick enough to contain and absorb all the egg while not being too thick and chewy, which is often the case with a bagel.  The eggs are scrambled perfectly and held together by just the right amount of cheddar cheese as not to overwhelm the taste buds.  The key, though, is the bacon.  Sliced thicker than in any restaurant I can recall, it’s cooked to just the right level of crispness to blend perfectly with the soft eggs and cheese.

Not only will you be treated to this amazing sandwich, but all of Regi’s brunch items are served with fantastic home fries that, again, are prepared crispy but not burnt.  When you wake up this Sunday after a night of drinking Bohs to celebrate the Ravens win over the Colts, consider heading to Regi’s for a panini that’s sure to start your day right.

Circulator Kicks Off Service

This morning Sheila Dixon was on hand to help begin service of the Charm City Circulator, a free bus service that provides eco-friendly transportation throughout downtown.  The Orange Line is the first to go into effect, traveling East/West from the University of Maryland area across downtown to Harbor East and Little Italy.

If you’re downtown in the next few days hop on and let us know what the service is like.

On DC Fanhood

What is a Baltimorean to do when it comes to rooting interests in the NBA, NHL and MLS?  This is a question that I have long pondered and what better to forum to address it than Bohs and O’s.  A place where leading Baltimore sports exports come to share analysis and ideas.  A place where being bandwagon is about the worse insult once can receive.  So I pose the question to the forum.

Here is my analysis of the situation.  I was admittedly a bandwagon fan of the Capitals last year.  I attended one game, watched a few more, but did not follow them religiously until the playoffs and have only watched one game so far this season.  The Baltimore sports gods made my pay dearly for my transgressions when the Capitals lost to another team from Pittsburgh.  That made two playoff losses to Pittsburgh in a 6 month span.  I clearly learned my lesson.

Is it possible for us to be true fans of DC teams?  Does that fact they are not from Baltimore mean are rooting interests are inherently bandwagon?  They are the closest teams to us geographically, but it is not quite the same as having Baltimore on the jersey.  They don’t represent us in the way that the Orioles and Ravens do.  I know the Terps play just outside of DC, but they are the MARYLAND Terps so they represent us as well.  How can we root for a Hockey team from DC when we despise the football team?  We will never really fit in with the rest of the fan base.  The Caps game that I attended last year was the Thursday before the Ravens-Skins matchup and we got in several altercations with Redskins fans.  We know little about the DC and its sports history, which are vital parts of being a sports fan.  How could you ever fit in as a Baltimore sports fan if you did not know the story of the Colts skipping town?  Your whole mindset would not be in sync with the rest of the community.

I also wonder if I even have room in my heart or on my schedule for another team.  If there was a Baltimore hockey team would be as diehard about it as the Ravens, Orioles, and Terps?  Right now I have three teams whose schedules fit perfectly so I can have a team to root for at all times during the year.  Maybe this is why Baltimore sports fans are so much better than sports fans from Boston and DC.  Our passion for our teams is more focused and not spread out between 5 or 6 teams.  If the Ravens are struggling we can’t turn NBA or NHL teams and hop on that bandwagon instead.  We are stuck with our teams whether they have made the playoffs in consecutive seasons or are have 13 straight losing seasons.

Bohs and O’s contributors and readers please share with me your thoughts on Baltimoreans’ fanhood of DC sports teams.  Can we ever be true fans?  As Baltimore sports fans should we even try to root for DC teams or should we focus on our own teams?  This may lead to the broader question of what it means to be a true Baltimore sports fan.

There’s going to be a “Situation” in Baltimore Soon

On Thursday, February 11th, the legendary Mike Sorrentino, better known as “The Situation,” from MTV’s “Jersey Shore” will be making an appearance at Mad River Bar & Grill in Federal Hill. And by “appearance,” I mean, ordering lots of Jagr Bombs, showing everyone his abdominal muscles, and getting rejected by no fewer than 30 girls before, finally, bringing two ugly girls home who have no intention of hooking up with him. But, to be honest, he probably has too many otha tings goin on to really even care about dat anyways, the point is dat he coulda hooked up wit dem had he wanted to. It’s really their loss.

Bohs and O’s strongly encourages our readers to show up to this event. Not only is it a chance to see a reality celebrity, but it’s also a great opportunity to make fun of a reality celebrity. We haven’t seen such a pathetic and wildly delusional character as The Situation since the critically acclaimed Fox series, Paradise Hotel.

Bohs and O’s actually tried to start a twitter war with the Situation, but he was too much of a wuss to take on our superior intellects, not to mention biceps.
