The Baltimore Museum of Industry presents an exhibit honoring the American traditional music of the banjo, which has been played in Maryland since the 1740s. The exhibit will celebrate the banjo with displays including one of the first commercially produced banjos in America, created by local Baltimore talent, William E. Boucher.
This exhibition explores this history of the banjo in Maryland. Since the mid-1700s, the banjo has been a staple in Maryland tradition. A banjo concert will take place on May 18 with local musicians displaying their talent and knowledge of traditional American music.
Visitors to the Baltimore Museum of Industry can interact with the technologies which forged the Industrial Revolution. Exhibits include recreated workshops of machining, printing, garment-making and metalworking, as well as local inventions from the first disposable bottle cap to modern radar. There are also lots of hands-on activities for kids.
This small Locust Point neighborhood spot serves pubby standards with a few beachy twists (jerk chicken salad) and some serious local floavors (coddies).
The more Locust Point gentrifies the gladder we are that Hull Street Blues is still the unpretentious, enjoyable restaurant it's been for the past two decades. This place straddles the line perfectly between “old” and “new” neighborhood joint--for years, it was the only place around you could both play shuffle bowl and get a mesclun salad, and we suspect it may still retain that distinction. Sunday brunch is legendary. The shuffle bowl table is transformed into a buffet of glorious breakfast fare, from eggs and sausage to carve-your-own ham and smoked-fish platters. Pancakes and French toast are made to order and brought to your table, and the Bloody Marys are mighty. Though Hull Street might bring in folks from outside the neighborhood primarily on Sundays, food the rest of the week is good, too. Check the affordable sandwich menu for blockbuster shrimp salad and a tasty blackened fish sandwich.

Seafood at L.P. Steamers tends to fall into one of three categories: raw, steamed, or deep fried. It's a simple menu; basically, you pick your crustacean and then choose how you want it cooked. You can hit the trifecta by ordering, say, the fried sampler platter, a rewarding mountain of clam strips, shrimp, oysters, a codfish cake, fries, and scallops topped off with a crab cake. Follow that with a dozen clams or oysters from the raw bar, and then a pound of steamed shrimp. But try also to save a smidgen of room for the exemplary Maryland and cream of crab soups, and the stuffed fried soft crab if it's available. In short, if it's seafood at L.P. Steamers, it's going to be good.
