It’s possible that I’m most excited about visiting Baltimore because it’s home to the best seafood one could dream of (crab cakes! oysters! all topped with Old Bay!), Charm City Cakes, and the country’s oldest continuously running tavern, The Horse You Came in on Saloon.
But we can’t forget the dozens upon dozens of indie bookstores within a stone’s throw of the city, or the fact that barring a major snowstorm I’ll be arriving on Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday (perhaps a trip to his tomb at Westminster Hall is in order?). Okay, okay, for all of you sports enthusiasts, yes, we’re going to be spending four days together adjacent to Oriole Park at Camden Yards, but for all the rest of you, I can’t wait for us to check out the Charm City in between the many, many exciting events Winter Institute has to offer.
We best get packing! Here’s what we have to look forward to next week.
