Default Headed to Baltimore this week....

I will have the days free while the wife is in a conference. Can anyone suggest something fun for one to do in the downtown area? I will be staying at the Hilton next to Camden Yards.

When I was stationed at Fort Holabird in Baltimore in 1968 we used to go up to "The Block" on E. Baltimore St. to see the extraordinary ecdysiast Blaze Starr at the 2 O'Clock Club.
But I imagine she's long gone now.

She died in 2015 in the same town she was born in, Wilsondale, WV, at age 83.

Second on the B&O Museum.

Torsk.......Baltimore is my home town,........even so I am glad I didnt get economically trapped there.............Ohio is a free state, Maryland is not......

Any way, during the time my children were grade school, late 1960s, we visited Baltimore several times a year. On one occasion when we had been to the B&O museum, we passed the Torsk berth. Gate was open, I drove my '66 Pontiac wagon in next to the boat. We got out & took a few pictures with our Kodak Brownie. Kids wanted to go over on the boat to take a picture...sure.....wasnt anyone around. Wife & I went forward, looked aft, no kids........hastened back to an open hatch just in time to see a little blonde head turn from the ladder & a gruff male voice sounded rather sternly, "Whatta you kids doing here.???" I had decided to go down then & sang out.........told him we were visitors from Ohio.........quiet for a minute then he said "OK, go ahead & look around but stay on this deck." We wandered around for some time but never saw the man with the voice, kids said he wasnt in a uniform.........looking back on that incident, I suspect the boat may have still been commissioned. Was several years later it became part of the museum.

My girls are 57, 55, 53 now.........
