Howard's Subway in Linthicum--RIP
Went there for a cocktail and a sandwich before hopping a flight last Friday. It was locked up tight at mid-day. I guess they found a buyer.
Howard converted the basement of his home into a bar when he got out of the service in 1946. The decor was vintage rec-room and it was a very clean, comfortable, friendly place to relax and have a drink.
Farewell to another great neighborhood institution.
Yeah, she told me about a year ago they were looking to sell. I always liked Howard's from the first time I set foot in there about 12 years ago. I hope the buyer keeps it going, but I suspect the property is too valuable to make it profitable. Ah, well....seems like that's what happens to all the great little joints eventually.
