Geek stops in Baltimore-Part I: games and movies

(This is the first in a series of post about geeky things to do in  the Baltimore area. )

There are a great many geeky things to do in the Baltimore area. Interestingly enough White Marsh Mall actually is a good one. Before anyone reading this goes “Wait, what? A mall! You’re nuts!” Take a second and read the rest of this post. If you’ve read some of our earlier ones you know that we’re big fans of Suncoast and are frequent visitors at our local one Continue reading Geek stops in Baltimore-Part I: games and movies

Costume contacts-Yeas and Nays
