Postponed: Blaster Al Way: Waverly Block Gets Renamed!

Blaster Al Ackerman

L to R: Rupert Wondolowski and Blaster Al Ackerman, back in the day.

 

UPDATE (4/230/2015): The celebration of naming of Blaster Al Way has been postponed. No new date has yet been set. Here’s Rupert Wondolowski:  “[T]he Blaster Al Worship Foundation has decided we should postpone our celebration in honor of the Freddie Gray Justice activities/movement, so that folks can be free to focus on that.  We will set a new date when our hearts are lighter to trumpet the glory of Blaster’s humor and wisdom.”

ORIGINAL STORY: Blaster Al Ackerman was more than a writer and a mail artist. He was a full-on cult figure, whose sayings (e.g., “May you be blessed to work in a despised medium”) are widely quoted and whose pranks and stunts (e.g., performing his work with a bar of soap in his mouth) have become legendary.

I knew Pete’s Grille was amazing when I heard that Michael Phelps ate there many mornings during his training for the Olympics. But yesterday, my favorite Waverly breakfast spot made me love it more than ever… by offering to pick up hungry neighbors and drive them to the restaurant. You know, like delivery — but in reverse!

SHA Acquire Two Wicked New Plows to Fend Off the Next Snowpocalypse

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Nov 27, 2013 8:35am

 

At the time of Baltimore’s 2010 Snowpocalypse, I was living on Venable Avenue in Waverly. The street was literally never plowed. My neighbors and I eventually had to clear the block with shovels. Actually, it was a pretty good bonding experience.

But the State Highway Administration doesn’t want to be caught with insufficient resources the next time we experience an actual blizzard. To that end, the SHA has added two nasty double-wing snow plows — for a total of three such $200,000 unstoppable snow-killers — to its fleet of 2,400 plows, salt-spreaders, and magnesium chloride trucks.

I Always Suspected There Was Something Shady About the Waverly Post Office…

potruck

What with the national mail system bleeding money (and consequently raising the price of a first-class stamp again), I imagine the higher-ups at the USPS aren’t happy hearing that two of their Baltimore post offices are “cash cows” — but not in a good way.

Yau Bros. Carry Out, on Greenmount Avenue in Waverly, has been the site of four murders since 2009. It’s a disturbing presence in what is otherwise a worthwhile business district populate by the likes of Darker Than Blue, Pete’s Grille, Trinidad Gourmet, and Normal’s Books & Records.

And now, as reported at North Baltimore Patch, Waverly residents are circulating a petition to deny Yau Bros. a license to remain open between midnight and 5 a.m. Read More →
