ON BEING BULLISH....
We have big plans here at the Baltimore Be Bullish headquarters. We're two individuals, obsessed with this city, fueled by ADHD and coffee and beef sticks from Grace's Acre. This means each day we pump out a steady stream of texts, gchats, Instagram tags, emails, handwritten notes, Tinder swipes, LinkedIn connections and Craigslist missed connections about things we want to check out as part of our journey into exploring the best of Baltimore from the people who live here. Yes, that's our tag line, we hope you remember it. Because this endeavor also relies on bullish people like you to help us out. Where should we go? What should we order? Who is your favorite person in this city we need to interrogate?
In our first podcast, Bobby talked about Baltimore's amazing sense of community. We couldn't agree more. There are so many stories behind the corner stores, old buildings, former Chinese restaurants (did Baltimore have its own Chinatown before?), railroad tracks, murals, farmers market stands, fried lake trout spots, roller skating rinks, factories and social clubs. We're excited about this project because this is the Baltimore we want to explore. And we can, thanks to the abundance of people who have been bullish on Baltimore long before we made it the phrase of the century. Yeah, watch out US Office of Patents and Trademarks, we're coming for you.
Everyday, we hear about new ideas, initiatives and people who are putting everything they have into making this city better and working to engage more of the community. Last night, we attended the MVBA Mayoral Candidate Forum in Mount Vernon. More #bebullish-ness on the Mayoral election to come. We're pumped there are more of these packed events all over the city than we can keep track of. But we'll be all over, and using the social medias to post our whereabouts ahead of time. Find us, tell us about all the cool stuff we don't know about yet. You get your hair cut from an 85 year old dude whose family used to own a distillery during prohibition? That's awesome, please take us there, we'd love to meet him and his whole family. Or at the very least, share something with us to save us from making up stories about distillery-owning barbers who don't actually exist. Finally, if you don't already know about the campaign to end Be Bullish from our first podcast, well check it out. We're looking at you John Waters.
