1. Where do you like to flirt?
Definitely, the walk through Rain forest room at the Baltimore Aquarium. There’s something about Two-Toed Sloths and Golden Lion Tamarin monkeys that put women in a good mood, which makes them very approachable.
2. Where’s your favorite table for two?
Stone Mill Bakery off of Falls Road in Baltimore. They make the best chicken pesto and cheese paninis I have ever had ( the additional caramelized onions are a must).
To drink, I usually go to any spot in Federal Hill (Thirsty Dogs, MaGerks, Mad River) or the outdoor party area in front of Pickles Bar before an Orioles game ($2.50 for 16oz Budlights, and lots of fun people).
3. Where should we stay when we visit (besides your place)?
I have a guest room in my basement, $5 a night plus free pancakes and eggs from my mother.
Or, if you want to be lame, you can stay at the beautiful Marriott Waterfront Hotel right next to the Inner Harbor in downtown Baltimore. Right near Fells Point too; another really fun bar area.
4. What qualities do you find irresistible in a woman?
Wonderfully painted toe nails. No, a confident woman. Standing tall with security, being proud (not hubristic) of who she is, and not afraid of being herself (the sexiest for me).
Some women argue that games are essential in building good relationships. I, then respond with the following; “Thank you for a lovely evening, have a nice night…Check, please!”
5. Where can we find you on a free Sunday afternoon? Just roll over?
Well, if you were to be my stalker (just let me know first); you could find me at the Merritt Athletic Club around 1p.m. and practicing guitar for pretty much the rest of the day. It’s a Sunday, give me a break, God says I should chill.
6. What do you love most about your city (besides our arrival)?
Baltimore has passion. Yeah, it has some rough parts, but if you go out drinking one night or to a Baltimore sporting event, you will find die hard fans who love and cherish the place they grew up. Some of the most fun and passionate people you will ever meet can be found in Baltimore.
7. What should we bring when we visit your town? What should we leave with?
Am I supposed to say “nothing,” I will have or buy you whatever you need? Um, bring a bathing-suit for my crocodile slip and slide, hygienic products, and some triple AAA batteries; my last three died. You can leave your Macbook at home; you can use my mine.
8. What do we absolutely have to see while we’re there?
Besides the 2 p.m. Dolphin show, I would definitely see an Orioles or Ravens game. I would also suggest walking around the Inner Harbor, eating at Roy’s Hawaiian style restaurant and getting a sweet treat from Vaccaro’s in Little Italy.
9. Any areas of town we should avoid?
Yes, there are definitely those. Seriously, Baltimore is a great city and has lots to offer from Fells Point to the Inner Harbor to the beautiful suburban and historic areas a littler further away from downtown. However, this is not one city where aimlessly driving around, looking for that cute little tucked away antique or coffee shop is recommended.
If you know where your going, have some spots previously researched, and if you stick to a plan then you should have a very memorable time in Bmore.
10. Any local secrets you want to share?
I really can’t believe I’m going to tell you about my favorite place in the city, but since I am being asked, I feel compelled. It’s a very small restaurant in Greek Town called Samos. They only take cash. Ugh, now I’ll have to wait even longer for a table.
