not forgottenPosted: August 11, 2009
Fear not, blogosphere.
My blog might be a little lost, but not forgotten. I made a resolution to myself that I would blog more, and I can’t lose sight of that!
I have been busy recently. I was across the country in California for part of last week. An entry about that is to come; I took my digital camera, SLR camera, and my phone (with a camera), so I need to get those pictures loaded and together.
To throw those out there (all 7 – 10 of you) the proverbial bone, I will show you what I discovered on my way to meet a friend for lunch a couple of weeks ago:
I love the color of the diamonds – very vibrant and a nice burst of color. I’m not sure if you can tell what the environment is like around these pieces, but it’s sort of dilapidated and run down – boarded up buildings on a street that used to be so full of life. Howard street (where these particular pieces are located) used to have three large department stores and would be the route for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade every year. Now, it is an area often glazed over due to abandonment and crime. The Baltimore Downtown Partnership is working to make the area cleaner and safer, but this does not happen overnight. It’s an uphill battle.
There should be more murals in the city. What better way to give people something pleasant to look at (especially while riding the lightrail), give exposure to emerging artists and show that Baltimore actually cares about the arts (it’s getting better I think)?
This particular afternoon I am very full.
Lately, I have been making / eating delicious food. For lunch, I ate at Sofi’s Crepes at 333 N. Charles Street. I had the Thanksgiving Crepe, which I would recommend to anyone (especially my friend Sara. She loves Thanksgiving!). Turkey, cranberry sauce, and pesto mayo all wrapped nicely in a crepe. Very filling. Not an hour after lunch, I was given a loaf of chocolate chip banana bread by one of the residents at my work. She has made this before and it’s always such a treat!
It’s also Restaurant Week in Baltimore, and this means that some of the priciest restaurants in the city have prix fixe menus for $30.09 per person for dinner. I am participating in this. Tomorrow I am looking forward to enjoying Petit Louis with a handsome date, a nice dress on and a bottle of wine!
