The Essential Baltimore
Wendy Brackman’s 10-foot-tall motorized mandala of veggies on the cover (and on display at American Visionary Art Museum, page 18) says it all—Baltimoreans are obsessed with food. And it’s no wonder. After all, this is the home of the famed blue crab. But there are also coddies, pit beef and the “Baltimore Bomb.” See page 6 for more local flavors you have to try. Need more tips? Turn to page 8 to get in on free fun around town and page 10 for a must-have guide to Camden Yards. Short on time? Here’s how to make the most of it at one of the city’s top spots.
