Terrell Suggs isn't shy about t̶e̶l̶l̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶l̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶i̶s̶ sharing his feelings. That'll make the outspoken Baltimore Raven all the more interesting to listen to tonight at Hightopps Backstage Grille.

The Oriole Bird is making a stop in Timonium and bringing drink specials with him.
Relax. It's best of five for a reason. Baltimore Orioles fans were, shall we say, less than pleased last night, following the New York Yankees' late innings homer. But that's why the Sumerians invented beer. If you're looking to turn that frustration around—or to commiserate with like minded fans—Hightopps Backstage Grille will be playing host to the Orioles Bird Thursday evening for a pep rally, featuring drink specials. Come for the orange and black. Stay for the $2.25 Miller Lite and Coors Light and $1 Bud Light specials. Always drink responsibly. Former Orioles All-Stars Chris Hoiles and Tippy Martinez will be in attendance to greet fans. Hightopps is located at 2306 York Rd, in Timonium. Parking is limited in the main lot. Consider …

A local restaurant/bar manager had to get eight stitches under his left eye, as a result of the fight.
A Hightopps Backstage Grille manager receieved eight stitches under his left eye after being punched and kicked by several men during a bar fight late Monday. The fight involved at least three men who are temporary employees working at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium, according to the police report. (Disclosure: Nick DiMarco previously worked at Hightopps Backstage Grille.) The fight started over a disagreement about who was going to use the pool tables in the lower bar Monday night. The manager on duty attempted to break up the argument when two men, both temporary state fair workers, picked up a large bar stool and, while the manager’s back was turned, attempted to strike him in the head. The manager deflected the stool and then a…

Does a signed autograph tell a much deeper story?
It's not uncommon for musician Ted Nugent to make headlines for spouting off uber-conservative (at times controversial) political sentiments. He was most recently quoted saying that the President represents "everything bad about humanity," according to The Huffington Post. Nugent's polarizing comments have been a topic of discussion only in recent years (minus one stark detour from sanity in 1990 when he told the Detroit Free Press that apartheid was "not a cut and dry issue.") In April, the gun rights activist pleaded guilty to breaking game laws by killing one too many bears and illegally transporting one of them. That was the same month he threatened to kill President Obama. You may recall the rock star proclaiming he "will either be …

T. Brad Hudson is using his weekly "Drink Till We're Funny" free comedy show at Hightopps Backstage Grille to raise money for Caleb Medley, a fellow comic from Colorado.
Local comedian T. Brad Hudson is using the popularity of his free weekly comedy show in Timonium to help raise money for a fellow comic who was one of the victims wounded in the theatre shooting in Aurora, CO. Caleb Medley was described as an up-and-coming comedian, who had just won a well-known talent contest, two days before the tragedy, according to 9 News (a Colorado NBC affiliate). Medley was shot in the face and remains in critical condition. His wife meanwhile gave birth to their first son mere hours after Medley was rushed to the hospital. To make matters worse, Medley does not have health insurance—like most comedians carving out a living at his age. The Huffington Post wrote that Medley's family could face hospital bills up to $…

John Huff was allegedly driving on a suspended license at the time of the incident, according to police.
Baltimore County Councilman Todd Huff's son, John Huff, has been charged with two traffic offenses stemming from an accident last week in which the car he was driving struck a pedestrian in Timonium, county police spokeswoman Detective Cathy Batton said.

Baltimore Ravens wide recievers Lee Evans and Anquan Boldin were put on the spot Tuesday afternoon, at an intimate "tweet up" in Timonium. The event, sponsored by Verizon Wireless, was held at Hightopps Backstage Grille, where about 50 fans clamored for photographs and a Q&A session. Among the topics discussed were Joe Flacco's mustache, what the players do in their spare time, the religious attention surrounding Broncs QB Tim Tebow—and an invite to a woman's Super Bowl party "after" the Ravens win.

Drink Till We're Funny standup show featured its (almost) all-women lineup over the weekend.
Warning: The following video contains some adult language and may not be suitable for all audiences. Only the women of T. Brad Hudson's weekly standup comedy show Drink Till We're Funny can make the word "Checkmate" cringe-worthy. (You had to be there.) I caught the show Sunday night, billed as "Live Nude Girls," which was actually a lineup of hysterical women (and one last minute fill-in gentleman). I scraped together what semi-clean jokes that I could pull from last night's show to bring you a taste of what you can see weekly at 9 p.m. Sundays at Hightopps Backstage Grille in Timonium. You can join the Drink Till We're Funny Facebook group for updates about who is performing.
