I don’t know how other bloggers with full-time jobs do it. I’m constantly behind on posting and never quite get everything I want to do accomplished. But, I love this space and the outlet it provides so I will continue to try to do better. Perhaps a New Years’ Resolution is in the works? Until then, here is a very brief look at our recent visit to Baltimore.
We made the trip at the end of October, when the leaves were just barely beginning to turn and the weather was still unseasonably warm. It was one of those days where we’d planned to work out and be productive, but the weather was just too damn nice and all of a sudden we found ourselves in the car heading north. This is why I love the East Coast so much – there’s always a nearby adventure for those spontaneous travel moments.
It’s a shame we don’t get up to Baltimore more often. It’s a lovely city with a distinctly different (and cheaper!) vibe than DC. I love being a Washingtonian, but certainly feel charmed by Charm City every time we go.
We really didn’t have much agenda for this trip, other than a change of scenery. After a delicious brunch at The Boathouse Canton, we simply wandered around for a while.
After walking our feet sore, we hit the road for one last stop. Union Craft Brewing makes one of my go-to sour beers, so naturally we stopped in to see what else they were brewing.
The space was really cool and had plenty of seating indoors and out. I had The Blodgengüch sour vienna lager and Tom enjoyed a Moon Unit IPA, both collaborations with other breweries in the area and not available in stores. We also picked up a couple of six packs to go. Although I prefer wine over beer in a big way, I always have a good time checking out local craft breweries and supporting small businesses.
We’d originally planned to head to nearby Woodberry Kitchen or La Cuchara afterward, but failed to check their hours and arrived when they were closed. I’ve only heard good things about both restaurants, so I’ve decided another trip to Baltimore is definitely in order soon.
Tell me – what are some things I must do the next time I’m in Charm City? Coffee shops? Museums? Your favorite dive bar? I want to know about them all!
