Lithuanian Festival 2015 - Baltimore May 9 and 10

it's a fun festival. the crowds start to roll in after noon and sometimes the place seems ready to burst! along with the food, there's music, dancing, crafts, books, and a military history display.

the potato pancakes are good. if the athletic club is selling cold beet soup, try it. it's very refreshing. just don't be put off by the "pepto pink" color! cepelinai, which are potato dumplings stuffed with meat are the national dish. to quench your thirst, there is lithuanian beer. and finish this all off with a shot (or two, three, four) of virytas. this is a honey liqueur.

Wedding reception food/questions. Professional input welcome....

congratulations on your son's wedding, janet! just a few suggestions for some japanese foods. how about a crockpot of miso soup in addition to your veg chili. also, in keeping with the picnic/bbq theme, how about chicken yakitori. everyone loves, kabobs, right? for the desert table, mochi might be nice. and a final suggestion, add saki to your list of alcoholic beverages. hope the reception is a blast!

Best seafood in Baltimore Harbour?

if you're willing to take a walk on the "wild side" (aka the block) on fridays, crazy john's on baltimore st. has a decent crab cake at a very decent price. yes, you have the strip clubs, but you, also, have city hall one block up and over and police hq one block down.

Horrible Restaurant Names

dick's halfway inn, rosedale md. would you believe parents of students attending the school across the street from this bar/pub were upset with the name so made them make a change to the name?

Do you hold Grudges against Restaurants? And for how long?

2nd visit to this restaurant. nothing fancy, just old-fashioned, comfort food. first time that i went, i enjoyed the food and the memories it brought back.

2nd time, i'm sitting in a corner booth and had just started enjoying my meal, when a cockroach climbs up over the back of the seat, onto the wall's ledge, down onto the table and starts walking across the table toward my plate. there are other people in the restaurant, so i don't want to cause a commotion so i quietly start waving my hand and calling for an employee. by the time a busboy finally arrived and asked what the matter was, i'd already gotten out of my seat. i pointed to the roach on the table at which point he squashed it on the table. a moment later, the waitress hurried over and asked what the problem was. i told her about the roach and said that i'd be leaving because of it. she asked me if i wanted to take the food with me. (really??!!) i politely told her no, walked out the door and haven't been back since.

got the impression that a cockroach appearing on a diner's table was a regular occurrence.

my mother could not be trusted to be left alone with steamed crabs in the car. it took two occasions for me returning to the car from a run into convenience store after first picking up an order of steamed crabs to find my mother cracking and picking away on a crab to learn that steamed crabs had to be the final stop.

restaurant for Easter dinner

just a heads-up...if you're taking I-95, there's major construction, both northbound and southbound, between caton ave and the tunnel.

and...do you have any particular foods you want for easter?

Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY Thread - April 2015

but jerry and elaine wait "forever" in a bakery to purchase a chocolate babka to take to a dinner party only to have the last chocolate babka sold to the people just before them. they wind up settling for a disappointing cinnamon babka.

here is a link to a list of farms that offer raw milk for "pet" consumption per nc law. some have cow shares, others have group memberships and others sell directly to the public.

you're absolutely correct! my "mind's eye" just automatically read potatoes. the russian delis from which i purchase salat olivier skip the chicken, though. looks like thursday's going to be a deli day for salat and kielbasa.
