Come see one of only two remaining WWII Liberty ships still afloat this weekend in the Inner Harbor. From May 18th-22nd, you can board the '441 long ship from 10AM-4PM. At the height of the war, the US was building 3 of these ships a day, with almost 2800 built in total. If you don't get a chance to make it down to see the ship, you can always drive down South Clinton Street to see it at the normal storage dock (Baltimore is its home). Heck, if you like ships, that's a pretty decent drive to take anyway.

Sure you've lived here for years, but have you ever been to the Flag House? It''s the home where Mary Pickersgill sewed THE star spangled banner now displayed in the Smithsonian. The flag that was flown over Fort McHenry in the Battle of Baltimore and inspired Francis Scott Key to write our national anthem.
Google has a great offer to get into this national treasure for only $4 (instead of the normal $8). At that price you can't not go. Here's the link.
Here are just a few pictures from the First Thursday event in Mount Vernon. The perfect weather made the event just fantastic. If only just a few more food trucks could be there...
