    Yeah, open to that local thing, but, seriosly, I have spent a ton of time in this city and burbs over the past almost twenty years. I scoffed it off like many do, including our shithead Prez., but have learned to know it and love it.

    Hit the original Wharf Rat bar in Fells Point. Great bar, some other good haunts in Fells Point as well. Also, one of the best series ever, Homicide: Life in the Streets was shot around there. One of the Fells Point’s bars has the actual open case whiteboard from the series mounted on the wall.

    Also, in the neighborhoods near fells points, some great Italian and central/eastern european food on the various saints days festivals, if that’s still going on.

    Yeah I brought up the new stuff just to make the point the place hasn't been and isn't about to be abandoned, that a lot of investment is going on as we speak. People are a lot more genuine and friendly than DC for sure. Headlines to the contrary people pretty much get along. Even though it's a majority-black city there's a lot of white folks around, even in the sketchy neighborhoods (they're mostly pretty sketchy white people there though).

    Hipsters are a presence in areas but they've far from taken over. It's a cool place. Too hot in the summer for sure as Benny said, but he was right about spring and fall, they're really nice. I like it there. Natty Boh is brewed in North Carolina and is a brand of Pabst now though.

    Here's a few pics I took over the past few days of riding. Remember, this is a half hour to deep downtown.

    One is a kinda crappy pic of about forty to fifty hounds out for their walk near the hunt club.

    Damn that is gorgeous.

    I grew up going to games in Camden Yards (there was no D.C. baseball then). Have a soft spot for bmore as a result. The place has lots of character, cool history & different scenes to match your interests. I'm a fan of the old design row homes that are ubiquitous there.

    Fvck don

    Edit to add, lots to do around Baltimore.. You can head towards the bay for boating or fishing or just fresh seafood and a drink. Annapolis is close with Navy sports and a cool old town. The beaches aren't that far away. And you can fish for brookies a little to the northwest.

    They actually moved them over so I could get by on the bike.

    The potential for mutilation is high. If those people were evil, I could have been fucked up with a few commands. Never seen so many dogs of the same breed in one place. And they were prime specimens.

    Baltimore's one of those citys that exemplifies lots of the themes of the 20th century. Industrialization & de-Industrialization. Explicit racial segregation - white people couldn't own homes in black neighborhoods & vice versa. A moneyed leisure class that mostly moved away. A learned literate scene (Mencken, Fitzgerald, Stein, etc) that disappeared. Worked in the district in question for a short time, and it had some quirky places, wish I'd explored more of them. It's strange thinking about it because it was "pre-internet food" and discovery was harder, but also more revealing because you didn't end up with a bunch of other internet people.

    White people couldn’t own homes in black neighborhoods? Really?
