We’re doing a lot of Baltimore coverage thanks to Artscape, the nation’s largest free public art festival. There will be more to come in the next week, because we saw a lot of art. But as one might have gleaned from some of our earliest Artscape coverage a few years ago, there’s just as much partying (if not more) as art involved with the festival. And if not “partying” per se, drinking.
I snapped this GIF of an astronaut unwinding at the city’s famed Club Charles shortly after Artscape rolled up its sidewalks (Artscape was space-themed this year). By the last day of a hot, exhausting weekend, we all needed a drink. Sunday I witnessed not one, but two people puking from some combination of sugary frozen slushies and heat exhaustion. One of them may or may not have thrown up on her children in the midst of dancing around a drum circle. Thank God for gravity. Perhaps it’s more accurate to say I won’t be wanting another drink until at least next weekend.
