The cast and crew of “House of Cards” kicked off their third season of filming in Baltimore with a party at The BoatHouse Canton last weekend. Kevin Spacey — who stars as Machiavellian politician Frank Underwood — attended the Saturday evening gathering, as did Michael Kelly — who plays Underwood’s right-hand man, Doug Stamper — according to the restaurant’s marketing manager, Hanly Heubeck.
The restaurant’s staff was barred from photographing the stars of the show, but they provided us with photos of the gathering and platters of yummy-looking food. Since everyone wants to see the show’s star, we took a little creative license with the photos and doused them with a heavy dose of Spacey.
Is this the way the party went down? We can’t be sure, since the gathering was closed to outsiders, but this is how the party appears in our imaginations. — Julie Scharper

“God help me. Old saints, y’all forgive me, but I got to tell you: These hoes ain’t loyal!” Bryant said to cheers. (It begins at around the 18-minute mark in the above YouTube clip that was published on Tuesday.)
Two springs ago, Baltimore’s most unrepentant degenerate set out on a mission of discovery. Beginning on Charles Street, not far from his home, Waters would hitchhike all the way to his San Francisco condo, following Interstate 70 most of way. There would be little in the way of advance planning; he’d be relying totally on his thumb and the kindness of strangers.
Limb lengthening itself is somewhat controversial among some with dwarfism who question the need to change. Some also wonder where surgeons should draw the line between medical necessity and cosmetic increases to height.
This year’s Artscape free arts festival, scheduled for July 18-20 and billed as the largest such event in the country, will feature Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and R&B singer Anthony Hamilton as headliners.
