    For us Benningtonians Sept 2-3-4 is a no-go. Sept 30-Oct.1-2 is a no-go. The rest of the month is open "as we speak".

    But like I said earlier dates fill up quickly for everyone with family.

    I think August is best, that's why I said to pick a date early, like we did last year, things come up.
    How about August 27??

    The O's are playing Oakland at Raven Stadium every night the weekend of August 27. Since Oakland is some distance away and by the end of August the O's should be about out of the running we can hope for open hotel accomodations.

    Judging by the rates at the hotels I would say that a lot of people are expected on the weekend of August 27

    The Days Inn is still $132 a night for the Aug dates, the Brookshire went up some though, what else is going on there that weekend??
    I think it will still work out.

    Baltimore in August !!??

    Hot n' Humid as Hell. You can smell those
    crab shells in 120 degree garbage cans for miles.

    Oh I remember... they made an invention called
    something like Air Conditioning.

    OK guys and gals, here's some of my thoughts. I would appreciate it if other Baltimorons chimed in if they think I may be overly cautious here.

    The Days Inn is on the border of parts of Baltimore that I would not want to be exposed to if I were visiting. Baltimore is a relatively small city with some unsavory areas. Days Inn can also be a bit of a walk to get to all of the places that show off the "Best of Baltimore", one of our many slogans.

    I have contacted the Renaisance Inner Harbor hotel which is right on the water and actually connected to the Inner Harbor shopping area by skywalk. The room cost is $189 a night based on 10-20 rooms and a Friday meeting room would be a base cost of $350. I think we could forego the meeting room and pick a restaurant of bar to invade instead.

    If we stay at this hotel we will be so centrally located that there will not be a need for any public transportation other then maybe the double decker buses that run around the Inner Harbor or transportation to Fort McHenry for anyone who wishes to visit there.

    For those driving, the parking is $21 a day in the hotel parking lot. With the Orioles games going on the traffic will be herendous and the cabs will be scarce. This will not matter if we can walk to anything.

    Baltimore is not the kind of city you want to be joyriding around in. The Inner Harbor area has more then enough to do for a weekend and just walking around it is entertaining.
