Feeding Heath Ledger's ghost

HeathLedgerJoker.jpgMultimedia Editor Emeritus John Lindner has sent us this riddle for his Shallow Thought Wednesday. Not sure what cheating would involve, though:
 
"Heath Ledger showed up at my door in Joker drag. He's hungry. (I'm not making this up!) Where do I take Heath Ledger's Joker's hungry ghost self?
 
I know of only one place. ...

 
We'll fit in. Heath won't be the most dramatic character.
 
Quick: suggest three other Baltimore (or Colorado) places we must visit before Heath's ghost is vacuumed back into the Misty Gray Beyond.
 
No cheating!"

Yes, definitely Daniel's. But only if you ride up on the bat-cycle.

I'm not a big Heath Ledger fan, jl, but I guess I'd take him to Outback and then to Charlie's, a gay country & western bar here in Denver. Then on the way back to his hotel, I'd run him through the all-night Walgreen's drive-thru pharmacy.

Holiday House on Harford Road. Plenty of bikers and even John Waters pops in now and then.

For some reason Golden West and Paper Moon spring to mind. Plus, any of the dive bars from Tuesday.

Burn in Hell!!!!!!!!!!

Burn in Hell!!!!!!!!!!

I'm guessing that wasn't directed at you, PCB Rob.

I ran across a book about haunted bars in Fells Point; it seems nearly all of them have a ghost or two. Maybe he could meet some friends at The Horse You Rode In.

OK. I surrender. There is more than one place. I've got to get out more. Burn in hell!!!! sounds interesting. Is it a BBQ joint?

jl - Wish I'd said that!

Not sure where that was directed, Bucky.

maybe a line from the movie?

Too many ghosts @ the Owl Bar ... I've begun writing a musical about it.
