Mount Vernon is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Baltimore. It was named after George Washington’s home of Mount Vernon, Virginia. Its name is fitting because it is the location of the first monument dedicated to George Washington.
Baltimore’s Washington Monument may not be as large as the one in neighboring DC, but it predates its larger version by 33 years. The cornerstone of Baltimore’s Washington Monument was laid in 1815, and the construction was finished in 1829. DC’s Washington Monument started in 1848 (33 years after the cornerstone was laid in Baltimore’s monument) and was not completed until 1888.
Industrialists rebuilding after the war of 1812 flocked to this fashionable neighborhood. They built the brownstones, mansions, and grand buildings that stand in the neighborhood today.
Mount Vernon: modern marvels
The Mount Vernon neighborhood is marked by varied and delicious cuisine, ranging from Thai to Turkish, from Afghani to New American. There are new sites, such as the newly renovated Hotel Revival and its rooftop bar Topside. There are painstakingly preserved charms such as the Elephant: where the Knapp family mansion’s collection of Waterford crystal, Tiffany glass, and De Forest carvings still decorate its lavish dining rooms and luxe lounge.

Thinking of something to do this 4th of July weekend?
Happy 4th of July! What a year it has been, and now (more than ever) our Independent Country is facing more challenges and more controversy than it has in many years.
For this 4th of July, I will take a break from the news and the controversy. I will take a break from social media. I will take time to enjoy the family, friends, fur babies, and fellow Americans that will share this holiday with me.
This is one of only a handful of truly American Holidays. This is the marking of our Independence, and Baltimore had no small part to play in the unfolding of those events. 250 years ago, we were a strategic harbor that ferried grains and foods to the revolutionary armies fighting for freedom. Maryland earned the name "The Old Line" state, because our forces held back the far superior force of British during the battles in New York. We enabled Washington to escape, at the cost of many Maryland lives, and gained fame that is almost unparalleled in American military lore and history. Our Maryland Line was used time and again, and some of the most decisive points in many battles were turned by them.
We fought. We fought for ourselves, and for our country, and for our people. We fought together, and we fought bravely. We believed in a dream of a better life for ourselves and for our country.
This 4th of July means the same to me. I will be dreaming of a better life for myself, and my country. I wish wellness and wealth for all my neighbors. I wish health and happiness for all my countrymen. I will be spending the day giving of my time and capabilities to those around me, and those I do not know.
For me, the 4th is a remembrance of sacrifice and solidarity. It is a celebration of tenacity in the face of greater opposition. It is a dream of a better world, and a better life. As our country struggles to remember it's roots, and it's common dreams of a better life, I hope that all of you have a safe and happy 4th. Enjoy the fireworks, and enjoy the cookouts. Take time to smell the roses, and avoid sunburn.
Most importantly - remember that Baltimore has a varied history and a wonderful community. If you don't know how the city was crucial to the War of Independence, the War of 1812, or even the Civil War, then maybe you should come join a food tour. We are far from the best, or even most complete, historical source - but we will promise you the best food while you learn!
Are you looking for a great date? Are you looking for a team building event? Are you looking to take you clients out, and show them appreciation? Are you just looking for something to do this weekend? Bite of Baltimore is the answer - a food tour and some entertainment.
Coming soon - Mt. Vernon historical food tour! Our ethnic smorgasbord of cuisine in the neighborhood is just what the doctor ordered. Come join us this July as we unleash our appreciation of immigrant and world cuisines!
We love you Baltimore. Have a wonderful 4th of July!
We all struggle with the idea of what to do for our parents. It's hard! I've always struggled with my own father, he's notoriously happy with his life and doesn't "want" anything. What the heck, why won't you let me buy your love and affection?!? I have come to the realization that I cannot give him a thing, so I have to find something to do.
Now you might be in the same boat as me, and you might not. Maybe you know EXACTLY the right present for your dad? That is awesome. If not, you might be thinking "What do I do for dad?"
Dad likes to eat. Dad likes to go to the movies. Dad likes to chill out and relax. Golf? Sure. Fishing? Sounds great. We've done the same stuff every year, and I want to switch it up!
Bite of Baltimore wants to be your switch up. Come take a food tour, and come learn about the city. We'll feed you, entertain you, and make sure your dad has a Fathers Day he won't soon forget. If you can't come with him, then buy a gift card! Dad can use his gift any weekend he wants, and come join us when he's got time to spend with family.
A food tour is a GREAT way to experience the city. It makes a great shared adventure, or a fantastic gift. Looking for something to do this weekend? Come take a tour.
We hope to see you Sunday, or whatever day you can come and join us!
Happy Fathers' Day to all the dads out there! Thank you for all you do, and for taking care of us all our lives.
