What's been your wildest night out in Baltimore?
I think my wildest night out in Baltimore would be a little too R-rated for Midnight Sun. However, Heather aka BiCoastalChickie, has some pretty crazy stories for us:
I like to travel, and I have had a few couldn't-have-planned-it-better nights out in other cities.In November 2006, I traveled to New Orleans for the second time (first post-Katrina) for "work." I was there by myself, and determined to eat some authentic local cuisine and down a few hurricanes (or Katrina-ritas, which were being served at the time).
Somehow, the conference hotel was right off of Bourbon Street, and I decided to have dinner at Acme Oyster Bar: etouffee and hush puppies and Abitas, oh my.
The old-as-my-mom divorcee sitting next to me struck up conversation and, yadda yadda yadda, we ended up bar-hopping Bourbon Street together into the wee hours of the morning.
I danced to a local blues band's music, did shots with post-Katrina construction workers, and joined an African-American midget lead singer onstage for some '80s party song covers.
You can't make this up. You can’t plan this. It just happens and it's awesome ...
I have been to Vegas seven times (this is not unusual if you have spent time living in SoCal), but the last time I was there was the absolute best.
We had a smaller group, five of us most of the weekend, which made it easier to agree on what to do and where to go. On Friday night that weekend, we splurged and took a cab (thank God for paying jobs vs. the on-foot travels of poor college students) to the Hard Rock casino/hotel, which had a little younger, flashier crowd (and sexier dealers) than some of the older casinos on the strip.We gambled, drank, and ate dinner there and then rode (!!!) over to the Rio to go to one of the hotter clubs (read: "no sneakers allowed"). There, the five of us individually embarked on the what-happens-in-Vegas portions of our evening. That was my top Vegas night, because it was unplanned, high-energy and memorable.
Here’s where you share your most awesome night out in Baltimore (or some other city). I know it will never be re-created quite the same, but it might provide a good starting place for anyone who needs to celebrate or memorialize or just get out of the house.
