Baltimore Fishbowl’s top story this week concerned a flashy dance party planned in an underpass downtown early next month. Many evening drivers on St. Paul Street have witnessed the bright neon lights lining the underside of the Orleans Street viaduct. On Thursday, April 6, the Downtown Partnership has arranged to transform that section of the road into a full-blown party with a dance floor, DJ and an open bar. As it falls in the middle of the Light City festival, the organization has cleverly dubbed the event “Lit City.”

Our readers were thrilled about the news of the party. The question is, will they get in? The Downtown Partnership expects the event to sell out quickly. For now, it appears tickets ($40) are still available.
