    Wow. Lots of Baltimore types here. We might have gone over this… but when were you there?

    Me? 1996-2001.

    Late, to be sure. In the fifth or sixth wave of terrible gentrification. But it still had an edge that I liked a lot. Plus, I did enough time there that I earned the right to go back and talk about how all the new versions of me RUINED the place.

    JH Saloon. A terrible strip bar named Boots. Butts and Betty’s. At the time, the best bar in America was a place called Kislings. About that, there can be no dispute. I’d even fight you over it, but all that drinking made me too tired.

    Once, I went to a polka mass and found a bottle of Crown Royal under my seat.Report
