The Baltimore Chop

Cocktail historian???

Have you never heard of David Wondrich? Dude’s pretty highly regarded.

We’re not sure where Bowman is from, but in the Baltimore where we grew up if someone is stomping you in the middle of the street it’s a clue that they don’t like you very much, and certainly don’t want to go on a leisurely bike ride with you.

You’d never see Eisenhower and Nixon taking selfies together! Because their relationship was aloof at best, tempestuous at worst!

Like, just to tell you what the post game crowd is like, it’s “Going home to Glen Burnie. Place becomes a wasteland after the games end, and I’m not going to sit there and justify to some fucking “Good ol southern boy” (motherfucker would not stop talking about the south! nobody gives a good long shit about the South.) our business model. Fuck off and go to Federal Hill.

Just a reminder about post game drinking from those in the know…

Jeffrey Toobin interviews former inmates at a McDonald’s in Baltimore: http://nyr.kr/1eubt5k

“It’s one thing to consult books like Michelle Alexander’s ‘The New Jim Crow’ and read about the mass incarceration of African-Americans in the United States, but it’s another to see former prisoners filling the seats at a fast-food joint.”

I’m just going to go ahead and express what might be an unpopular opinion here: Baltimore murals are getting worse by the year. No sleight to Pat Gavin and his many tumblrs but most new murals I see make me want to go to 40 East and rent a giant wrecking ball. This one included.

More than anything, it’s a game of innocence. Politicians may come and go, but they always get booed at the ballpark.
