Gimme More Baltimore!

I was finally able to see straight after a very big weekend and an amazing Saturday night spent at Brooklyn's Best party called The Rub.  Some ancient friends of mine, Smalltown DJs and Wax Romeo were in NYC DJing Flashing Lights and The Rub and when they asked me to tag along to Baltimore too, there was no way I was gonna say no.

So we met on a grungy street corner and had to start begging for a car to rent.  Didn't quite have all the paperwork to rent a car from the fancy places, so we had to go to a grimey place in Park Slope.  With a whole lot of negotiation and a fear that we would be given a car without brakes, we jumped in our little Ford and left the city.
In search of juicy crab cakes, we went to The Dizz where we indulged in some local cuisine with the locals (who may or may not have appreciated us?!)
 Break it if you got it... Mandeep makes the right decision and orders the best fish and chips around!
Obsessed with the flamingos!
Deep fried Mac n Cheese bites....I die for you!
 Baltimore is quaint and picturesque when you are on the "right" side of the tracks, and when you are on the wrong side, lock your doors and windows and prey that you don't pop a tire.  GPS should really offer the choice of "Avoid the Hood" or "Avoid Conflict", instead of just helping you avoid tolls!
For breakfast, we stumbled upon Paper Mood Diner the craziest establishment EVER.  Crawling with dolls, GI Joes, Barbies, Pez dispensers and the strangest mannequins... they served us up some serious breakfasts of champions.
A bit too creepy before my morning coffee!
All bathroom symbols should have to be mimicked by Ken & Barbie
Clearly, this is one of my favorite places ever, seeing as I didn't take too many pictures of much else!
On the way back, we had to get Mandeep to the worlds farthest airport to catch his flight home.  So we drove up through the Bronx, Sleepy Hollow and so many areas of the city that I have never heard of.  It was an adventure for sure, and even though I didn't realize it, I was desperate for a little break from the Big Apple.
And back to reality....
