Milkshakes at an old-fashioned soda fountain: Baltimore’s Charlesmead Pharmacy
Today, a neighbor of mine celebrated her birthday and had a delightful idea for a party: we all went for house-made real milkshakes at Charlesmead Pharmacy in Baltimore. This old-school indie pharmacy has a classic soda fountain! Open 6 days a week, you can get made to order breakfast, lunch and fountain treats, sitting on a stool.
They have a milkshake flavor of the month! So, for the last day of January, I ordered the toffee milkshake: excellent and rich. They have lots of other flavors if you prefer, though.
They also carry those old-fashioned candies and gums that Grandma always had in her purse, like BlackJack (licorice gum), Choward’s candied violet hard candies, horehound. Some of these are really great if you have a sore throat or just a dry tickle during concerts or lectures.
It takes a Renaissance woman to cover the cool, shocking, tasty, thought-provoking things on this planet. Tamar started life as a professional violinist; she was the youngest girl to solo with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. After becoming a criminal defense attorney in Baltimore, she discovered a world beyond classical music and courthouses. Perhaps it was when she was on TV with celebs Bill Maher and Peter Frampton. Possibly, it was after she judged the Roadkill Cookoff or the International Water Tasting Festival. Tamar is a Kentucky Colonel and has managed several Southern rock and alt-country bands.Tamar has traveled around the world; let her help you guide you to the special places to go and the fabulous things to bring there and bring back home!
