Bridget Parlato was fed up with the trash littering her daily Patterson Park walks. So she rolled up her sleeves and founded Baltimore Trash Talk and launched the 5¢ bottle-and-can exchange River of Recycling. With another River of Recycling and trash art exhibition planned for this Earth Day, and the Baltimore Office of Sustainability’s big push in finding solutions to our town’s litter, Charm City may actually get more charming.

Alright, maybe you don’t even need us to remind you. After all, the Great Halloween Lantern Parade is now as much of a Baltimore institution as the lights on 34th Street. But at the same time, we’d be remiss if we didn’t say it loud and clear: GO! GO! GO! Don’t miss it! The lantern parade is just one of those things that makes one feel all warm and fuzzy and geez-I-love-my-city-ish. It’s free to attend, perfect for kids and adults alike, and you can be as involved (Bring a lantern! Bring five! Dress up! Enter a contest! Volunteer!) or uninvolved (Just show up and spectate!) as you want. Anything goes. Just make sure to come ready for some major good feelings and gorgeous visuals. Read More →

Patterson Park may be quite tranquil now, but in September 1814 (when it was known as Hempstead Hill), the park hosted “thousands of militia men” as they prepared to defend Baltimore against a British land invasion in the War of 1812.
Baltimore Heritage has begun a month-long archaeological dig at Patterson Park at what they believe were the north and south ends of the War of 1812 entrenchment. (The headquarters were probably somewhere between the pagoda and the Friends of Patterson Park building.)
The excavation, which began Wednesday, has so far unearthed “bricks, mortar, glass, nails, shards of pottery, and a gunflint.” And no doubt countless cigarette butts and dog bones. In addition to artifacts from the war itself, the archaeologists hope to find evidence of Laudenslager’s butcher’s shop, from which Butcher’s Hill got its name. Read More →
To live in—and love—this city, is to love its skyline. We may not have the most recognizable one in the world, but like the old song says, “the prettiest place on Earth is Baltimore at night.” We agree, of course. That’s part of why we live here. Our densely-packed cityscape is full of unique architecture and buildings that hearken back to some of the golden moments of American history. And when their windows light up at night, it’s certainly something to behold. Our rich legacy as a place where immense amounts of goods were produced and shipped is written all over this town.
