After the race, complete the afternoon with a hot cup of soup and sandwich. We have outdoor seating so bring your friends! Good luck!

Halloween Fun

Come check out our haunted coffee shops. We have decided to be festive for the Halloween Holiday!  Come have a latte and get in the fall spirit.  May I suggest another thing to do to get in the spirit?? My friends and I went to the grave site of the great Edgar Allen Poe on a blustery Fall night.  Poe is buried in Westminster Hall, one of Baltimore’s most intriguing architectural landmarks. It is a converted gothic church built on arches above Westminster Burying ground, creating catacombs.  Edgar Allan Poe and his young wife found their final resting place within Westminster Burying Ground, as did several early mayors of Baltimore, heroes of the American Revolution and members of the city’s elite.

On this Blustery night we enjoyed the spooky sights and sounds of the wind, leaves blowing and the grave sites dating back to the 1700’s.  A note to all however, they do not post the times they lock the gates.  We were there about 9:00 and were padlocked inside the iron spired 8 foot tall gates.   Everyone made it over safely..I was the last to go over the fence, i just knew i was going to be the horror movie victim that would be eaten by werewolves.  For more information vistit
