The List: Ramen, Baltimore arenacross & top car plates

BALTIMORE - Here are the stories you're talking about on January 9, 2014.

1. TOKIFACT RAMEN TAKEOVER: The "Tokifact" ramen noodle takeover is invading Hampden.  

 

Some Baltimore and Washington D.C. restaurants are teaming up to bring a taste of the east to Charm City.

"It's among some of the most delicious things you'll ever taste. I think it's something that we haven't seen a lot here in Baltimore," said Woodberry Kitchen owner Spike Gjerde.

Woodberry Kitchen, Shoo-Fly Dinner and Artifact Coffee are hosting two weekends of ramen fun with D.C.'s Toki Underground and their head chef, Erik Bruner-Yang.

"Baltimore and D.C. are very different cities and we both have a lot to offer. I think the chef community and the food community in D.C. is an amazing one," said Spike

2. ARENACROSS DIRT BIKES ROAR INTO BALTIMORE ARENA: There are 170 truckloads of dirt filling the floor of the Baltimore Arena as Arenacross roars into town. But here's the cool part, you have a chance on the course as an amateur rider.

 

3. AMERICA'S BEST AND WORST LICENSE PLATE DESIGNS: Maryland no longer has one of America's most attractive license plate designs in the country.

After years in the top ten with the simple state shield, the new Maryland license plate celebrating the end of the War of 1812 has been pushed to 14th place on  CarInsurance.com's list.
