Our fair city
A new colleague, Erik Maza, has recently taken over the nightlife beat from Sam Sessa and the Midnight Sun blog. Mind you, he goes to places where I would be as awkward as a bishop in a brothel and listens to music that would make Wozzeck sound sentimentally tuneful,* but withal, he has demonstrated that he can turn a phrase.
He comes to Baltimore from Miami, and in an introductory article in today’s print edition he compares the two cities:
If Miami is the lady with the plunging neckline and the boring patter, Baltimore is the blowsy broad with a million stories.
I put it to you, that you could do the same thing. Compare your previous city to Baltimore in the comments below, or, if you’re an auslander, your current city to Baltimore. You are permitted to exploit gender stereotypes, male or female, as freely as Mr. Maza did.
*I’ll be working Wednesday evening and thus, fortunately, not able to hear Slayer, Megadeth,and Anthrax at 1st Mariner Arena.
