i’m getting tired of paris. not the real paris, but blogging about paris. perhaps it’s that i’m in a different head space, back in the states, sick in bed. but i’ve decided to throw linear time to the wind and post things in random, “i’m thinking about them” order.
to that end, today, i’d like to talk about ICE CREAM!!!!! specifically, about The Charmery. it’s a GREAT ice cream spot in hampden baltimore. full disclosure, laura, dov, and by extension baby maggie are some of my favorite, and best people. i’ve know them for eleven years now [yikes!], and as long as i’ve know them, they’ve been working towards opening an ice cream shop. hells bells, they’ve been working on this since college! also, dov thinks he’s the funny one, but everyone knows, it’s laura.
fresh off the boat, but with a cold, so i couldn’t snuggle with baby maggie, boo, i beelined for baltimore. when last i was in the states, they had just started construction on the building, and now, here, just over one year later, they’ve got huge lines, awards, and some of the best ice cream i’ve ever had. and i lived in san francisco. it was so exciting to see this come to life that i nearly jumped out of my skin.
also, after ELEVEN years of promising me that he’d do, dov made me earl grey ice cream. he was skeptical, but if the yelp reviews are anything to go by, the earl of sepi ice cream was a hit!
left over charmery birthday party decorations. laura snuggling my new best friend maggie.[don’t worry friends, all of your new babies are my new best friends] dov with his stink eye. crowds!!!!!the handwritten “sepi” was a little low rent, but i’ll take it. service with a smile! wait for it...the spoons are cold sensitive! i am sugar sensitive. fertig.
