Johnny Rad's

Posted: September 8, 2011

I was in Washington, DC last week with some of the Thrasher crew for the Maloof contest. On Wednesday we decided to take a day trip up to Baltimore, to catch the Orioles at Camden Yards. After the game we called our homie Bobby Worrest and asked if he knew of any sweet watering holes in the area. He recommended Johnny Rad's, a bar/pizzeria on Eastern Avenue. Upon our arrival, we discovered that Rad's tavern wasn't your average saloon. Owned and operated by lifelong 'boarders, the walls are adorned with skate memorabilia; wheels serve as doorknobs, and there's a fully-operational 720 arcade game. The menu features pizzas with names such as the Hosoi, Pepe, Templeton… And even one named after my father, the Pesto Vitello. If you ever find yourself in Charm City, this joint's a must-visit. Good people, good eats, and plenty to drink…   –Tony Vitello

Be careful opening the July 2015 issue because this Vans Propeller-themed beast might just cut your damn fingers off. Featuring interviews with Zorilla, AVE, Rowley, Caples, Pedro, Dollin, Dill, Chima, Trujillo, K-Walks and more, you're probably going to need a crowbar to pry the damn smile off your face when you're done reading this one. In addition, the Visualtraveling crew rides the edge of Arabia, Cab talks classic covers, Neckface celebrates a decade-long party with the mag and Daan Van Der Linden gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment (you're gonna wanna remember that name). There's not going to be any space left on your bedroom walls after you rip the good photos out of this issue. Tell mom to buy more thumbtacks.
Add this one to your collection.
