Wacky Wednesdays: Stoneleigh Lanes

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011 by WLOY Staff

Like bowling but wish it was different? Search no more! Down the street from Loyola lay Stoneleigh Lanes, which features 16 lanes of duckpin bowling. Yes, you heard me correctly: I said duckpin bowling. And no, it doesn’t involve ducks. Although the rules are similar to normal ten-pin bowling, duckpin bowling is not the bowling that you may be used to playing. Voted the “Best Bowling Alley” by Baltimore Magazine, Stoneleigh Lane’s duckpin bowling is a new and interesting way to bowl!

Wacky Wednesday: Edgar Allan Poe Gravesite

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010 by Alex Fili

Author Edgar Allan Poe is highly revered in literature, the nation, and particularly his hometown of Baltimore. In fact, so revered that his gravesite attracts many on a typical drive through the city.

Poe was originally buried in 1849 in an unmarked grave. Today, that is far from the case. The marble monument is both unmistakable and unavoidable. The granite base itself measures 6 feet on each side. A bust of Poe sits atop the base, inscribed with the dates 1809 and 1849 and Poe’s name along the bottom.

Wacky Wednesday: The Baltimore Tattoo Museum

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010 by Alex Fili

Art is known for its expansive array of subjects, materials, and mediums. One art form that pushes the limits of all those aspects is certainly tattoos. At the Baltimore Tattoo Museum, not only can you brush up on your history of electric tattooing but there’s a fully functioning tattoo studio as well.

Tattoos are gotten for all sorts of motives – aesthetic, spiritual, remembrance, etc – and it’s likely someone you know has at least one. Tattoos have been a large part of culture for a long time, but electric tattooing has sprung up just since the late 19th century. In the museum, you’ll get to explore the rapid history along with modern technology and masterpieces. From American to Japanese techniques, black and gray portraits, photo-realism and more, you’re sure to walk out knowing something you didn’t before.
