One thing I have always wanted to do while in Baltimore is go to Fell's Point. I have always heard awesome things about Fell's Point, but, we have never been. Like I said in Part 1, if we do come in to town we usually head home afterwards. Going to Fell's Point would definitely require a hotel room because there are so many awesome bars there.
I think I always thought Fell's Point was so much farther away from the Inner Harbor. It's actually within walking distance. Now that I know that, I will definitely be going back.
I need to start this part of the post with a special shoutout. I recently found out that one of the bloggers I have been following lives in Maryland!! How I didn't pick up on it before, I'm not sure. Catalyn over at Confessions of a Northern Belle is awesome. She gorgeous, a teacher, AND she met her husband on a cruise...how awesome!! Some of you might not know that The Goober and I are cruise freaks. We go on one every year!! Next one is already planned for August 10th!! Wanna join?!!?
On Catalyn's Weekend Shenanigan's link-up last week, she mentioned taking some friends to Fell's Point. They looked like they had a lot of fun so I emailed her about some good places to go. She was so sweet and responded back with a ton of suggestions. Too bad she's moving at the end of the school year. I think she would have been a lot of fun to hang out with.
One of the places Catalyn suggested was Max's Taphouse. All she said was "Max's has every beer under the sun." DING DING DING!! WE HAVE A WINNER FOLKS!!
My friend and I decided to grab a cab since we really didn't know how far it was. Turns out, it probably would have been faster to walk. And cheaper... Traffic was a bitch, which of course, ran the meter up on our cab. Oh well...
Max's was FABULOUS!! When you walk in you will notice the 6 coolers worth of bottled beer and about a hundred taps!!
We tried out about 6 of the beers. One of them was another Sweet Baby Jesus, like at Joe Squared. So good!
-Harpoon UFO Raspberry Wheat
-Oscar Blues Oscar the Grouch
-Oscar Blues Chub
-Burley Oak Just the Tip Sorry, I had to.
Can't wait to go back and get some more. We also ordered some food to soak up the beer. The friend got a reuben and I got some pretzel dogs with mac and cheese. Everything was so good.
From Max's we walked back to the Inner Harbor, stopped at the hotel real quick to grab some sweatshirts and went across the street to Camden Yards.
Our seats were AWESOME!!! We were right back from first base and only 5 rows from the field.
I legit got to stare at Nick Markakis's butt for like 20 minutes while he got stretched right in front of us. Then, of course, when he got up someone blocked my view and I couldn't get a pic.
We were yards away from J.J. Hardy, Ryan Flaherty, and...my favorite...Mr. Bubble himself, Adam Jones.
Looking at The Hulk's A.K.A. Chris Davisjunk in his trunk for the entire game wasn't that bad either.
We called it a night after that because we knew we wanted to get up early in order to cross another thing off my Ballmer Bucket List....
