    Baltimore Get Crafty Event

    Hi all.

    I will be at the Baltimore Book Festival on Saturday, September 18, 11:30 at the lifestyle stage. I am going to be reading from my book and giving a demo on making your own beauty products!

    I would LOVE to see you all there. I'll be down for the whole weekend, with my son and hubby. Any suggestions for things to do will be greatly appreciated! Also, I really want to arrange some press while I'm down there. Anyone have newspaper, magazine or radio connections or ideas? PM me!

    Jean

    Hi Jean!

    I don't know what time you're reading, but the 18th is also Hampden Fest, in my neighborhood (about 10 min from the Book Fest). I'll be out to see you, then heading there - I'm fire dancing at 7pm with the Baltimore Calefaction Society. It runs until 8pm, with bands and vendors, so come check it out if you have the time! There's also a park very close, so you can have chill out day time if you need.

    You might want to contact the Atomic Books people (Rachel runs a knit night in town). They may be able to help you out promo-wuse, or steer you in the right direction:
    http://www.atomicbooks.com/

    Their site also lists things that are going on in town.

    What kind of stuff do you want to do?

    Museums:
    http://www.avam.org/ (not sure what show is up right now)
    http://www.portdiscovery.org/ (kids)

    Artsy stuff:
    http://www.creativealliance.org/

    Kid friendly:
    http://www.mdsci.org/
    http://www.aqua.org/

    Fells Point for good independant shopping, Hampden for brunch/wandering, Holy Frijoles is great for dinner and their new bar is nice, Golden West is a fantastic Brunch Spot. Federal Hill for a fancier dinner - Federal Hill park which overlooks the Harbor is a great place to take a lunch/coffee, relax, and it has a non-dog fenced playground and overlooks the American Visionary Art Museum. Charles Street from The Washington Monument up to North Ave (but NOT North Ave, bad bad bad) for restaurants, the great Charles Theatre, bars (Club Charles, Brewers Art).

    I don't know when you're leaving, but Sunday afternoon is one of our regular craft ons:

    Lulabelle (Lynda) and I plan on coming out to see you, and some of our Honcrafters are vending.

    I hope this helps!

    Man, this would be a great time to plan a roadtrip to Baltimore. My roommate and I were thinking about doing that... but probably not. I'll be there in spirit!
