THE WORLD SERIES!

Here is what the world looked like 108 years ago, the last time they won.

    • The maximum speed limit was 10 mph
    • Gas cost $0.15 per gallon
    • Minimum wage was $0.22
    • A Hershey bar cost $0.02
    • There were only 46 states
    • Theodore Roosevelt was president
    • World War 1 had not happened yet
    • The NBA did not exist

     

    Congratulations to the 2016 Chicago Cubs on finally breaking the curse of the Billy Goat!

unknown-1What: Oysters

When: Saturday, November 5th, 1-5pm

Where: Baltimore Inner Harbor (501 Light Street)

The second annual Baltimore Oyster Festival is coming up this Saturday, and the timing couldn’t be better. Enjoy the fleeing summer weather we’ve enjoyed this fall for one last weekend with seafood, live music, activities, and more. The festival will include a variety of food trucks as well as activities for families and people of all ages. The festival is free, but oyster prices vary depending on the cooking style and amount of oysters you choose to buy. Spend this Saturday afternoon soaking up some of the greatest things Baltimore has to offer. The only way this could get more Baltimorean is if they add a little old bay (I’m not going to say they won’t…).
