Despite last week’s warnings to the contrary, some Washington Post writers continue to find Baltimore worth visiting. The latest entry comes in the form of Fritz Hahn’s weekend ode to taking the MARC north and bar-hopping.

With the ease of transit provided by the weekend MARC schedule introduction in 2013, Hahn writes that he started coming up to haunt Baltimore’s bars. Along with the much-praised WC Harlan, he gives love to the Southeast corner of town, with The Laughing Pint, Venice Tavern, Bad Decisions and Rye all coming in for praise.

It’s a contrast to last week’s Tripping blog in the Washington Post, which featured warnings about getting shot in Baltimore. Hahn still compares the two cities, but the end result is a great night. After hearing about doing shots of Medivka in Canton, I’ll have to be sure to go to the Ukranian Festival next year.
