Why Your Next Dinner Needs to Be At CVP Towson

If you’re anything like me, you love a good local place to eat. I’ve told you all about Charles Village Pub – Towson before in my post 6 Best Burgers in Towson, MD. And while it’s true that they have the best burger in town, they also have a lot more to offer. CVP has hands down some of the best food I’ve ever had, so kudos to their chef! I have yet to be disappointed by the food at CVP Towson. So, here is why your next dinner needs to be at CVP.

1. The Atmosphere

The atmosphere in CVP is unbeatable. It’s a mix of a local bar feel (where everybody knows your name, Cheers fans am I right?) and a quaint restaurant. Enjoy drinks and a meal while classic rock and pop 90’s hits play, I’m talking Matchbox Twenty, Third Eye Blind, Oasis, etc. (the good stuff). With added outdoor seating and a second floor to fit you and all of your friends, CVP’s atmosphere will make you feel right at home.

2. The Food

Obviously, I’m partial to talking about CVP’s food…because it’s THAT GOOD. Two words. Buffalo. Bites. CVP has the best buffalo bites I have ever had. If you’re looking to start with an appetizer, I have never had better nachos in my entire life. I’m serious, their nachos are loaded (they don’t call them six napkin nachos for nothing). Not to mention, you can get a small size of the nachos during happy hour. Be sure to try the Tiger Steak Flatbread. It’s honestly one of my favorite items on the menu because it’s so unique, you can’t get this anywhere else not to mention it’s delicious. And after all, CVP does have the best burger in Towson. Need I say more?

3. The People

The employees at CVP Towson are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. No matter how crowded the place is, they always make you feel like you’re the center of their attention. They’re incredibly attentive to your needs while you’re eating there (and to me – that’s customer service at its best). The people at CVP make you feel like you’re eating with your closest friends. So bring your people to their people and I guarantee you’ll have a great time.

And there you have it. Whether you’re looking for a place to eat with family or friends, CVP Towson is where you’ll want to be. Want the best burger in town? CVP is your place. Want a “feels like home” atmosphere? CVP is your place. I don’t think I have to say more, clearly your next dinner needs to be at CVP Towson.

So, what are you waiting for? Start making those dinner plans now!

5 Must-Visit Breweries in Maryland

Thinking about a place to enjoy a nice tasty beer and spend quality time with friends this weekend? Look no further than some of Maryland’s top local breweries. Last year, I went on an impromptu beer tour of some of the breweries in the area and I have to say, I highly recommend planning one of your own with your friends. It’s an incredibly fun day full of beer tasting, tours, and snacks (of course)! So without further delay, here are the 7 Must-Visit Breweries in Maryland (and yes, I know this post isn’t about food but quenching thirst is just as important as eating).

1. Union Craft Brewing

Union recently renovated their brewery and it is quite honestly one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been to. There’s a ton of space for you and your friends to sit and enjoy different craft beers. Grab some snacks and grab a flight (if that’s your kind of thing)! If you’re into sours, I highly recommend their Sour Deezus and Rough Draughts: Dark Sour. Another great craft beer to try is their Cide Project: #1 Cherry Berliner. So, what are you waiting for? Union Craft Brewing is the number one place to be (and where you’ll find me!).

2. Waverly Brewing Company

Waverly Brewing Company is one of my favorite breweries in Maryland (obviously the reason it made the list). Their taproom is a mix of an old neighborhood bar, art gallery, and lounge area. It really has that intimate feel as soon as you walk in – like you’ve just walked into your home. I suggest trying their Nitro Sour: Pineapple Upside Down G’oat or even their Pappas Pale (both extremely good beers). Or if a lager is more your thing, you’ll have to try their Batty No! So, be sure to make Waverly Brewing Company your next Saturday hangout with your friends, you won’t regret it.

3. Diamondback Brewing Company

Do I even need to say more? Honestly, look at that outside seating area (pictured above). It’s not hard to see why Diamondback Brewing Company is the place to be on the weekends (especially during the summer)! There’s so much space for you and your friends to enjoy some beers and fun at the same time. If you find yourself at Diamondback (which I know you will) you need to try their Green Machine or even their Missed Connections. Did I mention they also have Mario Kart? Yeah, so you can drink your beer and test your luck on Rainbow Road at the same time.

4. Flying Dog Brewery

Flying Dog has up to 20 beers on tap, what more do you need? They also have a food truck for when you want to grab a bite or two with your friends. Did I mention you can bring your own growler to be filled? Yeah, that’s a big plus. If you find yourself at Flying Dog Brewery be sure to try their Last Minute Gift: Cranberry Tangerine Gose, their Sunday Best, or even their Numero Uno Agave Cerveza. Honestly, all of Flying Dog Brewery’s craft beers are amazing so I promise whichever you try you’ll be sure to enjoy it.

5. Monument City Brewing Company

How incredible does that taproom look? Nice and spacious while the brick gives it that genuine brewery feel. Did I mention it’s located in a historic Baltimore industrial building? If you have a large group of friends (and who doesn’t when it comes to beer) Monument City Brewing Company is the place for you. Even if it’s just you and a friend you’ll feel like you have your own space to yourself. Be sure to try their 51 Rye or even their Rooftop Pineapple Mint Pale Ale. Also, and this is always a plus, there is live music every Friday night and food trucks on Saturday. So, are you on your way there yet?

And there you have it, the 5 Must-Visit Breweries in Maryland! So, grab your friends make a list and start your brewery tour, I promise you’ll have a great time. And if you get hungry after all that beer, maybe you should check out the Top 4 Ice Cream Places in Baltimore or even the 5 Best Seafood Spots in Maryland.
