To make juk, we’ll simmer rice in homemade bone and vegetable broths until smooth and consistent. Bowls will be topped with oysters, beef, and colorful winter veggies among others. It’s cold now and because we can’t wrap everyone in blankets (we can still try, anyway), we’ll serve warm juk – the next best thing. Dinner service will run from 5-10 p.m. each Monday and reservations will not be necessary. We will take orders at the counter and call your name when your food is up – tables will be first come, first serve. As always, there will be vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Holiday Movie Screening: Gremlins
8:30PM – 12:30AM
The Crown
1910 N Charles St, Baltimore
Rule 1: Keep them out of direct light.
Rule 2: Don’t give them water, not even to drink.
Rule 3: And most importantly, do NOT feed them after midnight.
If you’re thinking this sounds more like the set up to a horror/thriller flick, you’re right. 1984’s Gremlins smashed ideas of what holiday movies were supposed to be.

Enjoy!

– Lindsey
