What:Skate N Bowl
Where: 1601 Pennsylvania Ave, Baltimore
This Wacky Wednesday lets throw it back to our roller rink days! Step into the disco light and pull out your best skates! Skate N’ Bowl is the place to be. They offer skating almost everyday (minus Tuesday). Skate N’ Bowl offers Monday’s for private parties, so grab your best friends and have a party! Don’t have your own skates? No worries, they offer rental skates for just $3, so basically nothing can stop you from skating. Enjoy the classic arcade when you take a moment to rest your legs.
I highly suggest skating but incase you’re not up for it, bowling is always an option at Skate N’ BOWL!
Stop by, book a party and skate your heart out!

What: Cafe Hon’s Pink Flamingo
Where:1002 W 36th Street, Baltimore
When: Monday- Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday 11am-10pm, Saturday 9am-10pm, Sunday 9am-8pm
What is wackier than a HUGE pink flamingo on top of a restaurant? I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I can come up with anything else!
Café Hon hosts the HUGE pink flamingo! It’s a delicious café and popular spot in the town of Hampden. Café Hon boasts out-there wigs and great food. Denise Whiting opened it in 1992, but our favorite flamingo wasn’t introduced until 2002. Unfortunately, in 2009 our big guy went into “hibernation” for a little but he came back better than ever in fiberglass form! Café Hon has also been featured on a popular Food Network show!
Stop by, get some great food and take a million pictures of this wild flamingo!

What: Graffiti Alley
Where: Howard Street and W 19, Baltimore MD
When: Whenever (better in day time)
One of the first places I visited when coming to Baltimore was Graffiti Alley. A quirky professor took my class and me on a day long trip around Baltimore, and luckily, Graffiti Alley was one of the destinations. Located near MICA, this small alley offers some very eclectic and colorful Graffiti. It is all artfully done with precision and thought; it is haven for many artists and photographers. While I was visiting a small group was in the process of a photo-shoot– using the alley as their backdrop. Although it didn’t always maintain the best reputation, it is now an artist’s retreat for bright creativity and street art.
Stop by Graffiti Alley and be sure to take a bunch of pictures for the gram! It is completely free and open to all who simply just want to appreciate some very cool art!
