Please hop over to the Scarborough Fair Bed & Breakfast website and look at this place. It’s the cutest and has the best theme ever: literary. They are a highly rated B&B that is in a wonderful section of Baltimore within walking distance of great shopping, food and one of my favorite museums The American Visionary Arts Museum.
Don’t forget to check out their packages page – one of them includes some theatre and dinner and flowers.
Scarborough has graciously offered to host a reading of Red August just in time for the holidays. Also, did you know that you could get a room discount of 30% until March!? Trust me, I don’t even live that far from Baltimore, but I got the Grimm room (I mean, seriously – how could I NOT stay in the Grimm room?) for Will’s birthday a couple of years ago and we loved it. We kicked around town all day and then rather than driving back, we lounged around in our room, being sweet to each other and eating Dangerously Delicious blueberry birthday pie. Then to top off the amazing decadence of it all, we got to eat the wonderful breakfasts that Barry makes. Everything was fresh and homemade.
They also have a sampling of locally made items near the entrance – including locally roasted coffee and scarfs and stuff.
The reading in Baltimore will be an expansion of our last reading at The New Deal Cafe. Actors Erica Smith and William Hardy will be reading passages for about an hour. The theatre in one of the packages mentioned above? That theatre is Spotlighters, which William Hardy (who also happens to be an amazing writer, and my lovah) used to perform pretty regularly at years ago. Baltimore is full of great stuff.
There will be some hot cider and traditional Scottish black bun (a Hogmanay tradition) as well as other refreshments. Stop by for the reading, check out the B&B and then go shopping.
There is a Facebook Events Page for this event.
