Cleaning out Charlotte's

charlotte's baltimore"Gotta get up, get out!"

James Brown said that years ago. Then he went nuts, and eventually, died.

Charlotte's, the South Baltimore corner bar which replaced the Royal a few years back, is dead too.

Today, folks were cleaning it out, according to Midnight Sunner eGrooveCommerce, who snapped this photo and emailed it to me.

Now that is the kind of hot tip we here at Midnight Sun appreciate. And eGrooveCommerce will be rewarded for his bravery at the Shindig tomorrow.

I'll keep you posted with further updates.

Was there any good stuff in the dumpster?

I was hoping some of the swingers club artifacts would roll out.. Nothing but insulation though

Do not trivialize James Brown's legacy.

eCommerce ... the safety word is "banana."

Can't Wait!

Good things to come! The new place is called "The Reserve" and will be hosting good food, outdoor dining, great drinks and a whole new facelift. We're expecting to open just in time for the nice weather.
