If you’ve ever danced a rousing polka in the Baltimore area, chances are it was at Blob’s Park, the beloved beer garden/Bavarian dance hall in Jessup. It was the kind of place where you could eat some brats, drink out of a stein, and get a dance lesson. But Blob’s struggled with polka’s declining relevance, and with a younger generation’s lack of identification with Bavarian traditions. Blob’s closed and re-opened a few years ago, only to close again last year.
