Things to do in Baltimore this week 8/7/17

This is the blog post that almost didn’t happen.  I did too many things this week and didn’t have time to work on it at all in the evenings and I was leaving for a beach house with no internet access at 1PM on Friday.  I worked on it during my lunch breaks at work instead only to have an unfortunate computer crashing issue that deleted everything.  I went home to spend an evening working on it only to have the power go out because of the storm.  My power is still out by the way.  Going on 18 hours now…. get it together BGE!  It’s a terrible start to my birthday weekend.  I hope the rest of you enjoy yourselves.
