Baltimore to the Moon
When I first moved to Baltimore 5 years ago, I was very disappointed in the lack of guide books about my new city. In fact there was only one I could find featuring the city, and it was definitely mediocre at best. For a major city I found it sad that the only attention Baltimore got from the mainstream guidebook companies were a few pages lumped in the back of DC guides. Well, it took long enough, but the tides have changed. Geoff Brown, former managing editor of Baltimore Magazine has just authored Baltimore’s first true travel guide for Moon Publishing. The book was released June 1st, but tomorrow night (June 12) at 7pm at Atomic Books in Hampden is the debut event party. Guests can chime in about their favorites around Charm City, and don’t miss an amusing powerpoint presentation (now, that I can’t wait for).While Hampden is on your mind, don’t miss HonFest this weekend. Nothing beats the Baltimore’s Best Hon and Little Miss Hon contests! It’s Baltimore at it’s best, hon.
And, speaking of Baltimore one more last minute event for the radar (TODAY!) as time runs away without me: Maryland Traditions Showcase – a showcase of traditional and folk art along with musicians, esteemed local cooks and more – at the Creative Alliance.
