Vien Dong restaurant will warm your body and soul

Ah, winter. Even while wishing for a mountaintop fireplace, darting from place to place for warmth, the first layering of woolens, drabbest down or brightest fleece begin to muffle forms and features. The back of the closet comes to the front, here's the Siberian mufti, the Antarctic-suited yakwear. Fake fur

If you'll allow me a brief aside, I'd like to have the opportunity to get this observation out of my brain. "Laguna," the opening track off an EP of demos by the Echo Echo Echoes, reminds me so viscerally of Some Loud Thunder - the effectively career-ruining sophomore slump from

Music Critics' Picks: Abdu Ali, DJ Hawkskee, You are Plural, Trees and Timber

[POET/RAPPER/VOCALIST] + FRI, JAN. 10 Baltimore artist Abdu Ali is a tough one to pin down. Combining surreal poetry with droning R&B, Abdu Ali comes across as a restless experimenter, switching back and forth from rapping, chanting, singing and startling outbursts. His recent, lurching "Thornz" is as unsettling as it is

Wednesday, Jan. 22: Big Winter Reds tasting

One of the more embarrassing chapters in our culinary education happened in what we like to call wino season, when restaurateurs and wine merchants conspire to raise our consciousness (and open our wallets) with tastings, feasts and soirees.

Sunday, Jan. 19: Opera Cinema Series - "The Magic Flute"

Do you know the story of The Magic Flute? Mozart's famous 1791 opera tells the tale of four hopeless romantics who triumph over adversity - including giant serpents, a ruthless queen and evil sorcerers - to find true love. By Victorian standards, The Magic Flute was considered risqué because it
