Parents Weekend

During the week, my friends and I work and workout so we can have playtime on the weekends! This weekend, my parents joined me on my adventures. We first explored walking around the Baltimore Museum of Industry, which has a lot to “sink” in.

Then we got carryout at Limoncello Restaurant since they had no room to take any walk-ins. We thoroughly enjoyed our Italian meal on the roof deck. The Italian meats and cheeses platter is to die for. To walk it all off, we took in the sights around Federal Hill and Locust Point.

It was an effort to get my dad to wake up at 5:30am for the first time since his retirement 3 years ago. But he did it! There was no sunrise, but the temperature was perfect without it, and the views were still hot hot hot! If you want to bike/run/walk around the harbor, be sure to go as soon as the sun comes up to avoid the crowds. Took a pit stop at Pure Raw Juice in Locust Point – a health nut’s luxury meal.

Enjoyed the food and drinks at The Choptank for brunch in Fells Point. Positives: feels like you are at a beach bar, amazing drinks and good food. Downfalls: they didn’t have a large brunch menu and the freshly made donuts were not ready to eat for us to try yet. Get the cream of crab soup, a crab cake platter, and any drink your heart desires. We walked around to explore the historic and scenic town of Fells Point. Best time to go to be covid-safe is before 3pm.

Graffiti Alley is always a hit. So much color, talent, and makes for a great photo backdrop. As my cousin said, “Looks like my uncle is about to drop a 2020 rap album.”

Lastly, we explored some of my grandmother’s history with spotting the house she lived in in Hampden. We also visited the Cylburn mansion. My grandmother used to live on the grounds of the mansion when she was a child since her father was the caretaker. Inside of the mansion is closed due to Covid, but the grounds are still beautiful to walk around.
