For the evening plans, all of us folk ventured the 20 or so miles to Baltimore. My first thought was: thank God, a city. I could see old buildings and lights! It's a very pretty city at night (can't wait to see it in the day) and although it was pretty cold, we braved it to the Power Plant area. We went to Luckies Tavern at Power Plant Live for dinner/drinks (pictured below). It was an interesting venue, definitely set up for live music but there was none unfortunately. The food was fantastic. I had the best crab cakes I've ever had (I haven't had many, but still, the fish was goood) and a grilled provolone/prosciutto sandwich paired with a Sam Adams. Quite delish, I do say! It wasn't too expensive either. The bad views of Baltimore came as the night went on and we went to Mex and Mosiac. The clubs themselves weren't bad. I'm definitely not a club person, but the music was good and the atmosphere was pretty good as well. The cover charges were obscene for it, however. I understand if you're in a big city for a nice club paying $10 to get in. For Mosiac? Not worth it. At all. The amount of trashily clad women dancing around (on poles, yes) and women apparently with no clothing at all, just some paint (sorry no pictures) was pretty ridiculous. I also saw that the midriff top paired with tight high waisted jeans is back in style in Baltimore. Tsk tsk, ladies. It was an enjoyable night and definitely good to experience the Baltimore nightlife, but I'm excited to see the better less trashy side of the city during the day.
