    G&M is over rated and service sucks. They got ahead of themselves. I get an attitude when I go in there like they could care less if you spend money here or not.

    Haha, that's funny - He's coming from TEXAS. While here in MD, he WILL be a tourist... I guess it depends on what he's looking for. Many good suggestions here in this thread. I agree with the part about staying in town. There are enough good restaurants and activities in the downtown area to keep him fully occupied for 24 hours.

    Here's a link to some good information about the Inner Harbor area: http://wikitravel.org/en/Baltimore/Inner_Harbor

    And might I add - if you like trains, don't miss:
    B&O Railroad Museum
    401 West Pratt Street
    Baltimore, MD 21223
    410-752-2490

    I get what you are saying but to me it's different. Harbor place while for tourists is not representative of the great little neighborhoods and non-chain restaurants and bars within them that we have in Canton, Fells Point, and Fed Hill. If you really want to get a feel of how great Baltimore is you need to get out of the harbor.

    I think you're the only one besides myself to mention Kokos in this thread. Always my top choice.

    Two other great & cheap museums downtown in old train stations, particularly if the Texan appreciates history:


    President Street Station Civil War Museum


    601 South President Street
    location of the start of Baltimore's Pratt Street riots, infamous for the first casualties of the Civil war.... no, it was not at Fort Sumter SC!

    B&O's Camden RR station



    adjacent to Orioles Park at Camden Yards, almost spitting distance to Ravens Stadium, also was historically significant during the Civil War ... this houses the Babe Ruth and Sports Legends Museums, containing a huge collection of artifacts, videos, other attractions of The Baltimore Colts, Ravens, Orioles, other state teams, and famous Maryland sports figures,

    Also, the Texan should visit the new Ft. McHenry Visitor's Center, which opened earlier this year. It contains many original works related to the writing of the Star Spangled Banner (sung without the "O!")
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    This!
    Koco's are the best I've had as well. Good beers on tap too.
    As for Phillips, stay away, far away. They don't use blue crab, they use that Asian swimming crab for their cakes.

    I've got nothing against walking over, my point is if he's running around Inner Harbor all day, Aldo's isn't the easiest place to find. And grabbing a taxi gets him there.

    Re: A few questions from a Texan

    i have a couple seats in 539, sat up there for years before getting down low. they are high up there but the great thing about those seats is you see EVERYTHING unfold. from running lanes opening up to passing routes to defensive coverages and blitzes. you watch the game from the same angle that coaches do when studying film. have fun. do your pregaming in canton. its closer and a lot more fun than the harbor, IMO.

My guess is that maybe it was his house and not the actual museum.
    LOL, YES, the Poe Museum is in the middle of the ghetto. Literally. The entire neighborhood was razed decades ago to make way for the Poe Homes public housing project. Only the Poe house and the two adjacent row homes were preserved. It's funny whenever lost and confused white people are roaming around that area the locals are always like "Oh, you must be looking for the Poe House. It's just around the corner and two doors on the right." The tourists don't even need to ask. Haha
    "A lot" is a two word expression denoting a great deal or greatly, as in "I like sunshine a lot." "Alot" is a lovable imaginary grammar monster. You can love a lot; you can love an alot; you can love alots a lot; but they are not the same thing.
