Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake raked in quite a spread of foods after winning a bet against Boston Mayor Thomas Menino over the outcome of the AFC championship game. Menino sent Rawlings-Blake a package that included “cannoli, ravioli, various packaged goods and an assortment of seafood, including mussels, scallops, oysters and four live lobsters.”
Today all that food is headed to the Cottage Avenue Community, a housing program for homeless families in Park Heights. Now, if the Ravens could just win one AFC championship every couple days, we could turn this into a viable assistance program!
