Baseball Season and Summer End
A couple of weekends ago, my family met up in Baltimore. To go to one of the Yankees v. Orioles game, one of Jeter's last. To go to some of the festivities for the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner. And, of course, to eat, drink, and relax.
No game is complete with some stadium snacks and a couple of beers. Here, two from locally-brewed Heavy Seas. In this case, Loose Cannon IPA and Small Craft Warning Über Pils. So good.
Getting to see and hear the Blue Angels fly over Camden Yards. I can't imagine the players loved the distraction but it was pretty impressive as a spectator.
A dinner just a few stops away on the light rail. Followed by some coffee chocolate chip ice cream at Uncle Wiggly's in Mt. Washington. The upside-down sugar cone in the cup is how I roll.
Enjoying a delicious latte and light Sunday morning fare at Artifact. Made even more gorgeous with an American-made slate blue mug from HF Coors.
More viewing of the Blue Angels + beers on the waterfront. The Inner Harbor was lively and bustling with lots of people coming in for the anthem celebrations.
Local craft brews while dangling our legs over the harbor wall. Don't mind if I do. Flying Dog Snake Dog IPA and a Brewer's Art Birdhouse Pale Ale. Some days it just tastes better straight from the can. This was one of them.
A quick, final dinner and beer at Brewer's Art, one of our favorites, before hopping on the train back to NYC. This is Resurrection, an abbey-style brown ale, named so when the yeast during the first batch died and came back to life. Not for the timid. Delicious.
