This week, cheerleaders once again made the headlines, and strange Baltimore discoveries were right under our nose. It’s the Week in Review for Nov. 7-14:
As ever, Sunday’s Ravens game had plenty of talking points. John Harbaugh let slip a couple about the Steelers that he didn’t mean to let out in public. Meanwhile, a cheerleader’s scary fall left Ravens Nation sending well wishes.
Elsewhere in the news, the City Council threw a plastic bag surcharge to the wind, and banned them altogether. Later, a strange smell and stench that hovered over the metro area was at last explained as temperature inversion. Then, a woman sued Royal Farms to get free air for her tires at a gas station. Turns out, gas stations are required to provide free air pumps by law in Baltimore City, and the woman just happened to hit a Royal Farms that hadn’t transitioned to free air mode yet.
If you’re up for weekend browsing in the cold, this Lauraville cottage is ready for Pinterest in the real estate department. Shopping-wise, Lululemon is taking Baltimore love to whole new level, and Ray Mitchener has a new take on The Girl Next Door.
For those who are still adjusting to the return of the cold (present company included), we’ve got plenty of reading to catch up on. Laurel Peltier has a primer on one of Maryland’s fracking flashpoints, and we’ve got looks at the double standards at play and parenting takeaways from the fallout of the Molly Shattuck case. In case you’re feeling alone with so many offerings and too little time, Marion Winik chronicles what it’s like to have a lot of reading piled up.
