Summer in Baltimore

In August we had a super fun long weekend in Baltimore.  I kept meaning to blog about it, and never got around to it.  Since the temperatures are dropping and winter is on the horizon I decided I'd post them now!

We stayed in Fells Point with a friend in the most gorgeous row house. We walked so much that weekend, I love walkable cities! :)  I was excited to see the site where Homicide was filmed because I used to watch that show every week with my dad.  
We walked all around the harbour and toured the Seven Foot Knoll lighthouse.  I think lighthouses are so neat!

We saw the National Katyn monument.  Very pretty!

I was excited to see the Domino Sugar plant because who doesn't love sugar?  Well aside from Dr. Adkins...

We had the best dinner at McCormick and Schmick.  This is a crab and avocado tower.  So good! :) 
I love see murals painted on the sides of buildings.  It's such a fun idea!

Saturday night we went out to a few bars and just walked around exploring the city at night.  I was very excited to find B.O.P. Brick oven pizza...gluten free!!!  It was probably the best gluten free pizza I've ever had.  It made we want to consider moving to Baltimore!  lol!  There is nothing like having a few drinks and then eating way too much late night pizza.  I've really missed that since going gluten free!
The funniest thing was we were approached by this crazy lady who was obviously on some sort of drugs.  She had a crazy convoluted story about why she needed some of our pizza.  So we shared.  Then she walked off.  A few minutes later we heard crazy screaming and cussing.  She got in some sort of altercation with a cop and was arrested. Well at least she got some awesome pizza first! 
Our last night in Baltimore our host took us to her favorite Mexican restaurant...
Arcos in Fells Point.  Very good.  I got the lamb barbacoa.  I also got a flaming Mexican coffee.  So cool to watch them make those!
Todd got a flaming fried ice cream.  I couldn't eat it but everyone else enjoyed it immensely.  I don't know why food on fire is so fun!

Well obviously these are not the best pictures or the most comprehensive.  We did so much shopping, eating, sight seeing, and walking that weekend.  The best part?  I ate gluten free with no issues whatsoever!  I can't wait to go back to Baltimore! It meets all my criteria, historic, near water, fabulous food, and cool people! :)
