  • TrawlerFesting

    Like many a field trip, this one started with the phrase, “well, there’s a coupon,” this one for something called TrawlerFest, to be held down at the Inner Harbor on a late September weekend. I’m pretty much game for anything with “fest” in the title, especially if said fest is half price, so I handed over my credit card number and did a Googleysearch to figure out what a trawler is and why it might need its own festival. It turns out a trawler is a boat built for commercial fishing and capable of long naval voyages, so when I hopped on my bike to head down to the harbor that Friday afternoon I fully expected to see stuff related to fishing. Yeah, no. Turns out this festival was celebrating the third Wikipedia definition of a trawler: “a pleasure boat built trawler style.” Yep, I was at a fancy yacht show, and I was totally wearing the wrong shoes for the thing.

    Tiptoe Through the Polyps

    "Want to walk through the colon?" Sure we do. After all, what better way to spend a sunny Friday lunch hour than walking through a giant, inflatable, cancer-ridden colon? "You're kind of tall, so you'll have to bend over," laughs Kristy Spade, manager...
