I know that I’m late, but two posts in one weekend will surely make up for it … right?! This past weekend I was visited by two of my favorite Saint Louisans – Grandma & Grandpa Zollmann – also known as: Bill and Joyce. For the 3 days that they were in the “410“, I […]Read More 72 hours in Baltimore
This weekend was my first weekend *actually* alone in B’more. It felt great! Two bedrooms is big enough for two people … until you get it all to yourself! 🙂 Jess went on a camping trip with the rest of the NG new hires and I stayed behind to soak in all the “R&R” possible […]Read More Let That Introvert Flag Fly!
If you couldn’t already tell by the title of this week’s post, we had one eventful weekend! However, in traditional Haley + Jess fashion; even before the holiday weekend got started, we already had our boots on the ground & all over half of “Baltimore Obscura.” Jess’ older brother, Sam, stayed with us Monday-Friday. Sam […]Read More A Drug Sting + A Jelly Fish Sting
On Thursday evening, Jess, myself and a couple other NG new hires ventured out to yet another Baltimoreon ice cream shop. This time, we tried the Charmery – the supposed best creamery in the Charm City. I still like B’more Licks better – I mean how can you beat FREE rainbow sprinkles?! You can’t. I […]Read More A Puffer Fish with a hat & My favorite downspout in Little Italy!
This past weekend Jess and I had another glorious 9/80 Friday! So, naturally we took the morning to walk along the harbor to yet another nearby coffee shop. We enjoyed being off while the rest of the world worked! We both ordered lattes and slices of banana bread and enjoyed watching the harbor trash patrol […]Read More Split Happens!
Jess and I kicked off this weekend with beers and appetizers at Mr. Pickle’s Pub – located right across the street from Camden Stadium. On Friday evening, we were able to watch the Orioles’ game on both the bar T.V.s and through the stadium fence with the other Pathways engineers. While Jess and I were […]Read More Flags N’ Crabs!
Plans changed, we didn’t go to the beach… After work on Thursday evening, Jess and I met up with the other new hires at the Cross Point Bier-garden – to kick off our first 3 day weekend! 9/80 schedules are THE BEST! After a couple beers, all us new hires made a pact that if […]Read More “So, do you have a boat? … Well, know anyone who does?”
This past Thursday was Jess’ birthday! Happy Birthday, Jess! We celebrated with a couple natty bohs and pizza from our neighborhood spot, after a long, 9 hour work day. It was no Imo’s – but it did the job! We’ve gotten more comfortable in our new digs. I’ve taken to going on harbor walks in […]Read More A Birthday, Baseball, Bagels + More
This past week, in an effort to familiarize myself with Baltimore’s neighborhoods and the many streets beyond my own – I selected 5 coffee shops to visit. Monday: Aveley Farms located in Little Italy. Okay maybe this one is considered cheating (Maggie and I did hit this one up together before she left) – but […]Read More A week of Coffee Shops
This morning I drove to Wockenfuss Candies (Parkville, MD) which I believe is the Baltimore equivalent to Saint Louis’ Crown Candy. However, Wockenfuss doesn’t serve thick BLT sandwiches or banana shakes…so it moves down a few rings on my ladder. Nevertheless, Wockenfuss does sell heavily discounted and still delicious Easter chocolates in July! I scooped […]Read More Wockenfuss – B’more ‘s Crown Candy?
