Telling the story of Catonsville, the 4th of July and hot dog eating



As the summer heats up and the pandemic situation becomes more acute in our nation, we are focusing on a few of our dearest friends and partners here to celebrate the 4th of July.

First up is Evan Brown, proprietor of State Fare in Catonsville, where we called “home” for Baltimore Positive before this COVID-19 disaster in America. We’ll discuss the usual hot dogs, crab cakes and beer on the 4th of July but as we all know things will be a little different in the 21228 and Frederick Road – just like every other Independence Day celebration in our country.

We’ll also tell you about the new Mexican restaurant “El Guapo” that Evan and his incredible partners are cooking up across the street in Catonsville.

Because we haven’t been able to sit down and eat a proper crab cake at Faidley’s at Lexington Market or have some chicken and waffles at State Fare in Catonsville with our guests, we have been doing one longish episode rather than our customary three shorter blocks of conversation.

Given the current state of America in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis and protests on our streets and throughout the world, we will be focusing on race and the future of  moving forward in many of our upcoming July episodes.

Clearly, we voted last month. And we hope you voted, too, and are ready to vote again in November!

We are all in this together and this is a time to educate, unite and keep each other safe. But we also have some extra time to read and learn and educate ourselves in many ways.

We will continue to produce high-quality, intelligent conversations with thought leaders as our citizens try to readjust to this pandemic during the summer at Baltimore Positive.

Please subscribe to Baltimore Positive and stay with us.

We’ll try to keep you cool.
